CF Card Mailer

The term "genius" gets thrown around pretty freely… which means I don't feel too bad for doing it again right now. I'm going to call myself a genius for this brilliantly simple idea. I recently had a photographer friend shoot a job for a good client of mine while I was out of town. My friend didn't need his CompactFlash card back immediately, so he asked me to just pop it in the mail. I don't know about you, but I've never kept the little plastic storage case that every media card comes in, so I needed to think of an easy way to protect the card and allow it to fit easily in a normal business envelope. So I cut a piece of quarter-inch corrugated cardboard to fit the envelope, and then notched out an area where the CF card would fit perfectly. I taped it in place, and voila. I had protection for the card while maintaining the ability a smooth envelope that would travel easily through the Postal Service's machinery. And it only takes a single First Class stamp to send it. Genius, if I do say so myself.
