No idea if it's "good" - just nice product :)

These kind of packets are quite sought-after

Yes exactly - I planned on using them, not saving them for the packet.

Many thanks - arrived this morning.
But I have to say they did not fare very well in the postal machines without a strong bit of cardboard stiffener  :(

Thank you for the thought.
