Envelopes stacked as high as Big Ben!

Yesterday our Facebook friends played along with a little guessing game. The question:

How tall is the stack of 18,000 envelopes that OWH just ordered?

(Flat on top of each other, not end-to-end.) 

To give our blog readers a moment to ponder a guess, we looked for a few other things that are about the same height...like this chocolate replica of Big Ben (more pics of this stunning tasty sculpture are here!):
Or this 3 story home...

Or perhaps as tall as this rocket if it were standing up:

Have you got perspective yet on just how many envelopes it is? Quite a few, to say the least! We order them in large quantity every 6 to 8 weeks...the length of time they last depends on how many people donate envelopes with their cards, vs how many donate funds instead of mailing in the envelopes.

We've kept you in suspense long enough....the answer is 36 feet! The 18,000 are divided between our three shippers, so fortunately none of them need to buy a new home to store the entire stack of envelopes!

(And for the folks who sent message to ask: $393.96!)

WOW! Ok, I just ordered 10,000 and now you have me scared! LOL!

However, I know that several thousand will end up being ones you don't have to buy :)
