Reusing postage stamps - How much trouble could you get it?

As part of my business, I send out a lot of mail. I also get a lot of mail back, due to wrong addresses etc. To save money, I reuse the stamps I get back. You can cut the stamp off the envelope, erase the postmark and glue it onto another envelope. This technique has worked everytime I've done it, which is pretty much every day for many years.
So exactly how bad is this practice? Is there a significant chance of being fined or incarcerated?
Particulars: I'm in texas, I own the business in question.
