Envelopes made from Google Maps? Why not?

Syracuse University Industrial Design students came up with the concept of envelopes made from printed Google Maps. The concept isn't a real product, and Google isn't involved. But the idea is interesting. The mailing address on the mailing address points to its location on the map. Although Google isn't likely to do this, you could. Simply print out the maps and address, and glue the envelope together old school.

But what if your destination isn't southeast of your address?

What a great idea. I use to make my own envelopes (it's easy) from old magazines and even old maps. Cool new way to send snail mail. People really appreciate it - so try sending a letter/card today!

Great use of Goggle maps in an offline environment. Am sure this would be of great use to brands both big and small that use direct mail...
