Default Mailing a card that has some veneer

Does anyone have any pointers about mailing a card that has some veneer on it? I'm a little leery of sending something like this thru the mail system for fear it will get destroyed.

TIA

I'd make a sleeve to put the card in or just insert a piece of copy paper over the top of the card. It isn't very thick and shouldn't cause too much of a problem.

I do try to place my card in the envelope so any extra thickness is at the top near the postage/return address so the bottom of the card will go through the automated machines.

Since copy paper is relatively thin, how will it provide the veneer protection?

You have already protected the veneer with your acrylic spray. The only damage it should get is what typically happens in our P.O. system. An additional layer of paper or a sleeve (back and front of the card) plus an envelope should be enough to protect it. Or, you can always say DO NOT FOLD, photos enclosed or some such on the outside of the envelope.

Really, truly, think of it as a layer of cardstock on your card.
