GLASSINE

Isn’t glassine wonderful? In her interview, Laura shared shots of her lovely stationary packaged in glassine envelopes and ready to make her customers very happy, I’m sure. I thought I’d follow up with some info for you ladies who asked about affordable glassine. (For those of us not lucky enough to score it at a thrift store, like Laura’s roommate did.) If anyone has a great source, please share. Here are a couple places I’ve run across where you can buy glassine in its different forms.

Glassine envelopes. Buy them at Paper Presentation, DIY Papers, or Envelopper
UPDATE: Check out stamp shops like Global Stamps for a great variety of sizes. Thanks Pumpkin Petunia!
Glassine food bags, great for delivering cookies and such because glassine is grease resistant. Get it at N State Packaging.
Glassine rolls, usually used to protect artwork such as pastel drawings. Buy at any art source, like Cheap Joe’s Art Stuff.

And of course I have to throw in a little more glassine eye candy.

FYI I’ve found glassine at a reasonable price at The Packaging Store on Howard near 9th in SF. Also available through Clear Envelopes online.

You can find glassine envelopes aplenty at stamp collecting supply stores (one example: globalstamps.com). Such stores are a great source because they tend to carry a multitude of shapes and sizes.

For use with food, you will have to research whether or not they are food safe. I’m not sure about that.

Bake It Pretty (bakeitpretty[dot]com) sells glassine food bags in packages of 10. Thanks for the tip about N State Packaging. : )
