	The original source for glassine envelopes of the type used by
stamp collectors was the Worcester Envelope Company. The same envelopes
(opening on the long side) are now available from:

Potomac Supplies
PO Box 34410
West Bethesda, MD  20817
(301) 942-8300

As of March '98, their prices were

size		quantity

  		5000		1000		100

#1		$70.50		$16.10		$2.15

#2		$81.45		$18.65		$2.15

Shipping was 15% of the order cost, and they had a 10% discount for orders
over $195. Larger sizes are available--but every Alaskan butterfly species
will fit into a #1 envelope, so I have not been using #2s, let alone the
larger sizes.
