    The blueys are fold-over letter and envelope in one. You write your letter on the side that doesn't have the address lines on (but don't write on the bits that get licked and sticked)!

    If you want to send things in a letter, you should do so in a non-bluey envelope (though I always snuck a single sheet of airmail paper into the bluey itself) and you'll need to pay postage on that.
    Holy Cow!

    hi and welcome to RP jodie, yes you write on the actual envelope, and seal it...also no you cannot put anything into the blueys as you will have to send them seperatly.....e-blueys are good also for keeping OH up to date with everyday life...they only take a day or two to get there!!!....hope this helps..

    Thanks to those who have relied this helps!

    i did send a letter in one first of all and never relised until i got home and read the outside of the bluey that is says nt to put anything in!!!! OOOOPS!!!!! HAHA

    i will have to just stick to writing one sheet of A4 then i guess! which means my OH will get more letters as i seem to ramble on forever!

    Hi Jodie and welsome to the site.

    If you want to send a normal letter then one stamp on an envelope should do it. As for photos I would take them to the post office as it will probably need to be weighed. I sent a pack of photos and a few sheets of something I printed of the net and that only cos 70p to send.
