I had another (store) brand of self sealing envelopes before these and assumed these Mead envelopes would be the same. I was wrong. These are made of thiner paper making it feel cheaper and making me concerned whether the seams would hold when more than a couple pages were inserted. Also, many of the envelopes were crinkled up in the corners already. I don't know if this is a manufacturing defect or damage from shipping. But I was disappointed. Only reason they are getting 2 stars are the price (cheap, but you get what you pay for) and the self adhesive strips work well.

These envelopes are fine as envelopes go, just be aware that if you are looking for actual security envelopes, as these are described, these are not your way to go. These are just plain white envelopes with no sort of security whatsoever.

These envelopes are alright for enveloping papers. However, they are very thin and you can see the text on papers through the envelope.

These envelopes are made from very thin paper. You can easily read printed text through the paper. The envelopes are also folded differently than standard envelopes and the sides of the opening stick up when more than a couple sheets of paper are put inside, making it difficult to seal.

So it is obviously better then licking envelopes all day.

The problem with this one is that the "press-it seal-it" does not go all the way to corners, and tends to leave them sticking up.

I had to tape the corners down.

After the envelope is sealed, it can be opened with ease. Even if I ran the side of a pencil over the seal many times with pressure, I could still open the envelope (without tearing the envelope at all). And then I could re-seal it without evidence it was opened. I didn't steam it or anything spy-like, I just peeled it open.

I'm not complaining about the company or that I was mislead. I noticed the box doesn't make any claim about the envelopes being secure. The envelopes are exactly what they say they are - "Press-it and Seal-it". But it is just sealed until someone peels it open at the same place you sealed it.

I'm sure the envelope will remain sealed unless someone opens it. In other words, if you're not concerned about security, they are fine.

I thought Mead meant quality. I dont feel confident sending 3 or more pages in these envelops.

Not a bad envelope, but as has been mentioned previously, the paper is so thin you can read text thru it.

My biggest gripe is that I got these with the intention of using them with my HP J6480 AIO printer. Three paper jams and one driver reload later, I figured out that I had made a bad choice.

The paper of which these are made is very, very thin and light (not like bond) and the texture is a bit slick and plastic feeling. They do NOT feed well in to the printer. They are so slick and thin that the rollers can't grip it.

Lesson learned. For non-printer, low security every day use they would be OK.

Just don't let them near a printer. Get good heavy bond type paper envelopes.

These envelopes are VERY thin, The box claims they are 20 lb paper and it feels more like 16 lb. It's is a side of the box, BTW, that is almost obscured from view in the picture used for the listing.

They aren't "security" envelopes, that's what Amazon means when they say "White Envelopes." However, you don't get a send of how NOT secure they are until you have them in hand. I can read my computer screen through both sides of one of these envelopes.

The glue holding these envelopes together is just barely holding these envelopes together. A bit of dampness and I expect the seams will open up. However, given the paper used the envelope will probably already have dissolved.

The adhesive strip is only 1/4" wide,. It probably has to be that thin so someone can open the envelope without ripping the incredibly thin paper.

What you get is NOT what is pictured at all! First of all, you get a blue box, not the red one. Secondly, this is just a standard, thin envelope, without the printed lining for privacy you would normally see or like to have. I didn't realize until after I got it that there's another totally different kind of envelope out there. The adhesive is fine and good, I suggest not getting any envelopes without adhesives nowadays because they're just better & easier.

If you're looking for better quality and privacy, you need to get the Mead #10 Security Envelopes, 40 Count (75214). I don't know why it's only 40 count and not 50 for the same price, but this is the kind of envelope you would want to get.
