Hi, Dennis,

I read your message with interest. I've been mailing seed orders for the
CSSA Seed Depot for a long time and just
got some of the new custom forms last week. yes, they won't work on the
little envelopes that you refer to. You
will need  the size 0 (roughly 6 1/2 by 9 1/2); the new forms just fit on
those. I haven't sent any international orders
since these revised 2976 forms were issued but as far as I know the padded
mailers are still okay. At least, I sure
hope so.

Sue Haffner, CSSA Seed Depot
