Printable "Photos, Please Do Not Bend" Labels

Do you write "Photos: Please Do Not Bend" on your envelopes when you send pictures in the mail? I do and I'll be honest with you; I'm not really sure if it makes any difference? Do the mail carriers read these notes? Do they take any extra care delivering your package? Is writing "do not bend" the equivalent of having a "baby on board" sign on your car? I may never know the answers to these questions but I rather be safe. Recently I had a lot of photos to send out and instead of writing "Do Not Bend" I decided to make some stickers I could just stick on the packages. So in the case you're like me, I'm sharing the clip art with you guys and a quick "how-to".
Right click, copy, save and print on 8 1/2" x 11" sticker paper. You can purchase printable sticker paper at most office supply stores. Cut out images.

Love the stickers!! USPS does look, and they actually charge you a parcel rate instead of first class for adding "do not bend" I have asked ;)

I've heard somewhere that it actually doesn't make a difference when you write that. They just have too much mail, it's also mechanically and manually sorted, etc. But the labels do look nice!

Hmm. I always write "do not bend" on there and so far- no problems! I've picked up labeled envelopes from behind the counter as opposed to bent and stuffed in my po box, so I like to think it makes a difference! Your labels really stand out and show all the care that went into the packaging. I love them and I'll be linking.

I read that if you have a baby photo in your wallet and loose it, it is more likely to be returned than if you don't. I wonder if stickers said "baby photos inside" if that would help. Could anyone intentionally bend a baby photo?
