I want to use baker’s twine wrapped around my invites. I’ve read various accounts of needing to pay extra postage for anything bumpy/bulky inside the outer envelope… Does anyone know whether a couple loops of (thin) baker’s twine would cause an upcharge?

your best bet is to take 2 fully stuffed envelopes to your post office — 1 with baker’s twine, 1 without. weigh each.

This is a super good question! Baker’s Twine doesn’t actually add too much bullk. This is what we were able to stuff into our A7 envelopes and still have 44 cent postage:
- A7 envelope
- Envelope liner! (These did not go all the way down to the bottom, however)
- 5 x 7 Letterpress invite (it was pretty thick – Crane Lettra paper)
- 4 Bar envelope + liner
- 3.5 x 5 RSVP card (of 117lb card stock)
- Bakers’ twine tied like a package and bow
- Moo Card tag (that we tied the twine into)
I was suprised that it all fit – and was exactly 1.0 oz! If you want a picture, PM me and I can send it.

@neontl: Wow! Thanks for sharing your experience. That’s great news. I’m really impressed with how much you were able to get in and still use 44 cent stamps!
