Muh god-damn post office dosent have any free tyvek insolated envelopes. Do I need to ask for it, 'cuz they have a bunch of padded envelopes, but all of them were just padded inside with bubble-wrap. The bastards.
Well anyway for now I'm just gonna go out and buy some tyvek... :neutral: Where would I be likely to find some?

Good link Hip.

Being a former builder/contractor, I have many sources. If you have any friends that work at this profession, ExecutionStyle, you will have an unlimited supply.

The post offices I went to did not have the Tyvek envelopes laying out. They DID have them behind the counter. Just ask for a couple regular large Priority Mail envelopes. They ARE free; they expect you to pay postage. You'll know them when you see them if they are Tyvek or not. And no, they aren't padded or insulated.

Staples or any other office supply store has tyvek mailers. 20 bucks for 50 or 100. anyway its fairly cheap. you can get 6 or 8 wide mouth tops out of each one. good enough. Qt jars w/ poly plugs and tyvek is the way to go for grain imo

Has anyone had any sucess with reusing tyvek? I know I've reused it with success, using 2 layers and taping over the previous holes then PCing. Anyone else?

That's more lazy than cheap. ;)

If there is any building construction going on in your area, just go over to the job site when they are doing the housewrap. They wrap the whole house and then cut out the openings for the windows and doors. So those pieces they cut out are free for the asking...

Hippie3, I come from Canada and they say that I am a little slow, eh?

Seriously though, the USPS offer for free tyvek is for US residents only. I got the tyvek I use straight from DuPont, it was a sample thing that they sent me.

Request your very own sample.
