One of our invitations is going to Canada. I didn’t want our guests to pay for their own postage to mail the RSVP card back and the international reply coupons seem weird and complicated, so I ordered a booklet of the appropriate stamps from Canada Post online. Their site says international orders may be subject to duties or customs fees and that they’ll be collected upon delivery.
Has anyone in the US ordered Canadian postage? Are there any additional fees to pay?

In the case of international invites, it’s not “bad ettiquette” to not include return postage.

That’s good to know, but seeing as how I already placed the order… 🙂

I’m doing the same thing but in reverse (we live in Canada and are inviting guests from the US and overseas)
Usually the “customs and duties” thing refers to the fees applied at the border, like you would pay for any package ordered from Canada or anywhere else. So it’s a small amount that you will have to pay either to the guy who shows up at your door or at the depot where you pick it up. From my experience of ordering from the US, the fees usually aren’t horrible, especially when it’s a very small package (like stamps)
