Postage primer

Sending birthday cards, invitations, baby announcements or other special occasion cards? These factors will affect postage costs:

  • Size – Use rectangular (rather than square) cards and letters—they’ll be cheaper to send.
  • Thickness – Embellishments like bows or ribbons will increase thickness—and possibly postage.
  • Weight – Cards made with thick stock, or containing inserts, may be heavier than the standard 30 g, requiring additional postage.
