Banknote World has been my go-to company for banknotes and all things coins and currency for nearly five years. They ship all over the world via FedEx Priority International at $25.
Items are always as described and shipping is on time. The company has strong phone support and is versed in answering all questions.
The uncirculated Venezuela 500 Bolivar note (at 24 cents in bulk) is my bread and butter for banknote grabbers.
Jam Paper (North America) is one of many sources for quality airmail envelopes. Fortunately, this is a fairly easy commodity to order, no matter where you’re located.
Vistaprint is my source for custom self-inking rubber stamps. The “kitchen table” set-up with the custom stamps (return address and “passport stamp”), the generic (yet important!) “personal and confidential” stamp, airmail envelopes and postage is all you need for your first (or fiftieth) mail drop.
Your local printer can almost always handle the complete envelope printing, from several hundred to several thousand pieces. That includes the addressee, return address, “personal and confidential” stamp, and Venezuelan passport stamp (if you choose). Most big printers (retail chains) also have envelope stuffing services and of course, they can handle your sales letter printing.
Kenyon-Gluegunsdirect.com (United Kingdom) Another commodity item that’s easy to come by if you opt for a “kitchen table” or in-house solution for affixing banknotes to letters. Paper clips work also, but the “glue dot” is for choice since glue dots leave no mess or residue and are acid and odor free… sorry “odour free”in the UK. No surprise, this is available on Amazon as are airmail envelopes.
Talon Mailing and Marketing (North America) Letter shop, merge-purge, list hygiene (NCOA) and more. Michael Borkan is one of the best in the biz and will be happy to hear from you. If you’re outside of North America, get in touch with your country’s Direct Marketing Association and they can almost always steer you in the right direction, if you’re in the “I need to mail a million pieces” category.
