Silly question about mailing stamps... how many?

Postby 1LHopeful » Sat Jan 17, 2009 10:58 pm

For those thin manila envelopes, how many first class stamps are needed? (stamp has no cent value on it) it a size that fits printer paper just enough.

Take it to USPS or Fedex and have them weigh it. The last thing you want is for it to end up in the trash bin somewhere due to insufficient postage.

listen to animalcrkrs. even a paper clip could throw this off. go have it weighed and be sure.

wouldn't it SUCK to be rejected because of a stupid paper clip? what a sob story that'd be.

From the USPS site, first class mail, large envelopes (the ones you are describing).

1 ounce $0.83
2 ounces $1.00
3 ounces $1.17
4 ounces $1.34
5 ounces $1.51
6 ounces $1.68
7 ounces $1.85
8 ounces $2.02
9 ounces $2.19
10 ounces $2.36
11 ounces $2.53
12 ounces $2.70
13 ounces $2.87

The stamps without prices are the new forever stamps, currently $0.42.
If you work at an office, they likely have a postage meter. 3 stamps should cover the envelope + 3 pages.
