    Being where I work I do not have to buy the envelopes but I do have to modify the ones .
    so here is my process.

    this is the size of envelope I start with as you can see it is 7 1/5 inches wide and about 10 inches in length.

    I then place the painting on top and make a small mark to know where to make my cuts.
    I also rip off the fold over flap for a template.

    After marking out my fold over flap as shown here .

    I cut along the line and then cut away the second layer on one side .

    After that is done I have a finished envelope ready to shipping.

    I first wrap the remay around it like this.

    Then fold the letter

    Place it all inside and seal it

    it is now ready to be addressed and shipped as a letter .
