    Put a wooden piece of plywood of a suitable size inside.
    This will ensure they cannot fold it.

    why don't you use a courier service? If send locally, a one day service should cost around $6. A few hours service is probably going to cost you $10 - $15.

    Courier is fast, convenient as they come to you and is safer.


    Just search for courier service using www.yellowpages.com.sg

    You can try using harder pieces of cardboard for backing.
    Err...write "Please do not fold - photos inside", boxed, on the envelope?
    You can send one to yourself as a test run.

    I've sent out photos in envelopes marked clearly "WARNING - PHOTOS INSIDE, DO NOT BEND!" in reasonably large red text-box on the front of the envelope, with the 6R size photos backed up with matt-board. They've arrived ok. You can probably use any kind of stiff cardboard or foam-board... plywood will be a little heavy, and since singpost charges by weight as well as envelope size, well...

    Why not put the address you're sending to as the return address, then put a bogus address in front, U "forget" the stamp...

    does it work?
