@kelseymac:  have you done your “test run”? I’m curious about this because my invitations are acrylic and I don’t want to pay for a bubble envelope or a box but I’m afraid the invites will get cracked from the sorting machines :  I plan to do a test run too but I was just curious if you’ve done yours yet.

Media Mail?  Then they are definitely going to cost at least $3 a piece though.

@kelseymac:  Could you buy cardboard and cut it so that you can create an envelope for the records? I’m thinking cardboard the same thickness as a box of cereals – then you cut a long rectangle, fold it in half and place the record within. Buy pretty tape at Michaels, seal the edges, write the address directly on the cardboard and off they go!

Our wedding inviations were actually 45 rpms so I can help you out! 🙂 We got cardboard sleeves that we put stickers on to look like an album cover out of our engagement pictures. Then we ordered envelopes and just mailed them. We did put “Do Not Bend” stickers on all of them and they mailed just fine, just slightly expensive to get them all mailed. Here are some the sleeves we used:

And the envelopes we used:

For the labels on the record which was the invitation itself we just used CD labels where the “tracks” was the info for our wedding.

 

Hope this helps!
