Still Use Snail Mail? Create an Envelope Lined with Google Maps

Honestly, I don’t remember the last time I mailed anybody a letter, but I’m sure somebody, somewhere is still using snail mail. If you are, here’s how to create an envelope with a Google Maps view of a specific address on the liner on the inside.

Just head to the Map Envelope web site and generate your own, click the Preview button, then click Print. You’ll have to cut it out and fold it up yourself, but it’s definitely an interesting project idea.
