    i just got my invites and rsvps cards weighed at post office.. we are doing a 5×8 matte paper invite and an rsvp card in its envelope.. 45 cents per envelope. so 90 cents for one invite. one invite is going out of country so it will be 1.80..

    I just bought postage yesterday… I did a pocketfold w/ 3 inserts. the middle part had a matting & 65# cardstock. With all that, the RSVP envelope, & belly band – each one needs $.65.

    I got mine weight at the post office and they said $0.64.  Then I got one back saying it needed $0.20 more.  IDK…everyone has been getting them, so maybe the wax seal was thicker?

    Ours (somehow) weighed in at exactly $0.64 (last year, so before prices went up). So we got to use the lovely wedding cakes after all! 🙂

    As long as your bow isn’t bulky (run your hand over the outer envelope and it should be smooth), you should be able to get away with the regular 2 ounce postage.  If it is bulky (or has a buldge) they will charge you more.

    I had a pocketfold I sealed with a wax stamp and I got away with it not being bulky.  The postal worker I talked to at one office (I ended up getting opinions at 3 different places) told me she had a bow on her daughter’s invites and had to pay extra because it was too thick).

    The thickness you want to keep under .25 inches – but the bulk factor is in addition to the thickness!
