Don't forget to share!

If you are looking for real envelope stuffing jobs, I am sorry to say that you are not going to find them easy. There are so many work from home envelop stuffing scams out there that even The Federal Trade Commission has gotten involved, and is actively prosecuting envelope stuffing scams. So far the FTC has pressed charges against a few dozens or so envelop stuffing scams in over 17 states.

Having said that, envelope stuffing itself is real, and there are some legit companies that offer such jobs. It’s the perfect home based business for moms, stay at home dads, and anyone who is looking to work from home.

However, they pay is nowhere near what the scamers claim it to be. Envelope stuffers place business letters, brochures, coupons, catalogs and advertisements into envelopes, put the stamp on it and mail the letters out to their destinations.

If you have your heart set on finding a legitimate work at home envelop stuffing job, your best bet for finding one is to…

1. Make a list of each and every small print shop in your local area, as well as local marketing and mailing companies.

2. Either call each on up or stop by their offices and ask whether they use automated machines for envelope stuffing, or use manual labor. If they use machines, then your out of luck. However, if they do it manually, you may have a chance at getting hired to stuff their envelopes for them.

Keep in mind though that some companies may require you to become an actual employee to work as an envelope stuffer. Though usually, most companies will hire envelope stuffers as independent contractors.


I am sorry if I disappointed you, but that’s the truth. It really is hard to find legitimate envelop stuffing jobs online. Your best bet would be to follow the above steps, and hopefully you will find a few real envelope stuffing jobs.

    Lets be honest most envelope stuffing jobs as you put it are rip offs there is only one person who wins and it isn’t going to be you. I only know one person who does any good at it and that is only because they see to be able to sit down in the evening stuff envelopes and watch there favourits tv program’s at the same time as if they were doing nothing.
