The  problem here North of Montreal is that Summers are very humid. 

Chris, the summers are usually quite humid here too.  When I first  started 
this technique, I didn't have AC.  (Why they were by the window  that one day)  
I lived in an old house that had been renovated but didn't  have an AC.  
Since I had so many, I used a series of envelope dividers to  separate the 
envelopes and hold them upright for better air circulation.   The envelopes 
looked a bit drab by the time I got the "rattle" I was  seeking.  More moisture 
moved into the envelope itself.  But it still  did the job. 
Now that I keep them in the office near the computer they are in air  
conditioning and the envelopes stay nice and clean (looking).  I snip the  corner of 
the envelope when I'm ready to plant.  I often think how close  I've mimicked 
commercial seed packs.
