Default Sending magazine TTM tips needed, please

Has anyone ever sent a magazine like a sports illistrated, etc. for a TTM auto? If so, any feedback would be greatly appreciated. What size envelope, postage costs, success rate, etc. Thank you in advance for any info.

Yes I have. What I do is first I put it in a sheet protector like these:

Amazon.com: Top-Load Poly Sheet Protectors Standard Letter Clear 100/Box: Office Products

I get a document mailer like these:

Amazon.com: Scotch Photo/Document Mailer, 9 Inches x 11-1/2 Inches, 25-Pack (7917-25): Office Products

Then I get a 10x13 clasp envelope:

All of these can be found at Wal-Mart to save money. I put the picture/magazine into the sheet protector to protect it in case it runs into rain/snow along the way. I put the picture/protector into the document mailer (I fold the seal but I don't remove the sticker to seal it....that way it fits into the clasp envelope), and I use that as my SASE with 4 stamps for a photo (more for a magazine, but how much more depends on the weight). I write a letter, and paper clip it to the document mailer. Then I place all of them into the clasp envelope, and use that to address it to the recipient. Hopefully that makes sense, but if not feel free to PM me.
