Letter Envelopes

The ancient Egyptians protected their messages by rolling them up. They used sheets of papyrus, a plant that grows near the Nile River. The word paper comes from papyrus. In other parts of the world, letters were simply folded and sealed. The seals were made of wax, with a signet ring, so the letter writer wouldn't have to worry about the wrong person reading it. Really important letters would have a gallows mark placed on the outside. If it were not safely delivered into the rightful reader's hands the delivery person would be put to death. (How they knew the letter never got there is hard to say!)

Most believe that it was during Queen Victoria's reign, around 1840, that the first letter envelope came along. The envelopes were known as Mulready envelopes and included prepaid postage. Even that long ago, decorating envelopes seemed to give people a thrill and the British had a contest for the best decorated envelope. As mail services expanded, machines were invented to make envelopes more quickly and in larger amounts.
