@goingtotherooftopoflove:

Whenever I get mail that has been sent in bulk, they don’t have a stamp, but instead what looks like an orange barcode across the bottom of the envelope – is this what yours have?

I’m not an expert, but could it be a postage meter (http://auspost.com.au/parcels-mail/postage-meters.html) – rather than individually stamping each one, they just run the envelopes through a machine that marks them as postage paid.

@goingtotherooftopoflove:  It is because they go to different mail delivery centres which have different delivery and transfer times. Don’t worry they will all get there.

@goingtotherooftopoflove:  I had the same issue with mine.  MIL received hers the very next day,  and there was a weird pattern after that.  Two of my bridesmaids (local) never got theirs,  so I re sent them,  and my cousin’s bounced back (incorrect address) but it took a few weeks, and she lives in the next state over.  Part of my issue may have been related to the fact that they were square and had to be hand-sorted. Are yours square?
