I see you say this doesn't apply to online postage--can you give me a reference for that because I'd love to stop using the peanuts?
It is my personal experience in all of the cards I ship and receive. If you sandwich the cards between 2 pieces of cardboard it shouldn't ever have any problems.
Maybe the post offices were getting more strict on it, but so what? It's already got DC on it when you drop it in the mailbox. The windows clerks are the 'rule' enforcers, and they'll never see your package anyway.
