About wedding invitation sized. Anything smaller can generally fit through the machine.
I add a bubble wrap taco that seems to help protect seeds from the machinery just in case.

Order received.
Your order number is 0318.
I'll PM you shortly with a mailing address for your SASE.
Thank you for your order.

For Sarracenia or Dionaea seeds, I strongly suggest you use a non-machinable stamp on your return envelope. (The inside one) For Drosera, Pinguicula, and Utricularia seeds, the extra postage is not necessary.
If you can't find a non-machinable stamp, I suggest a forever stamp plus a 15 cent stamp or two regular forever stamps on your return envelope.
The USPS machinery loves to crush those seeds. 

Reminder to all:
Please remember return address on all envelopes.
Please remember to write your Forum username and order number somewhere on the envelope or in a note.
I don't have access to a cross reference of real-world names linked to usernames.
Remembering these things helps me fill orders quicker.
Thank you.

Happy growing,
Dean

I received it in damaged condition, and the seeds are missing. I assume they tried to put it through the machine and it was too big. It looked like the area with the seeds was fine and untouched but they aren’t there.

Apparently they fell out as I carried them to the table, I found the seeds on the floor and they were in the room before I reach the table and couldn’t have been accidentally swept off. Maybe the seed packet was not still secured inside the tape and slipped out as I carried it there.

I don’t believe they were blaming you for the damage, here is a picture of the slip that it came in.

"We hope this doesn't inconvenience you." Ok. Reminds me of this time my grandfather shipped some keepsakes across the country here to hold onto for him. They sent a portion of the flap of the box with the address and nothing else in a plastic bag. Glad you got your seeds but that is just ridiculous.
