I would go to the post office tomorrow and ask them.  They have a card that shows the dimensions of acceptable “normal” envelopes.  Square is bad…  But they’ll be able to help!

@jaded_chick19:  Could you cut a thin slice of each side? Normal A7 envelopes are 5.25 br 7.25 and you can buy ‘outer’ enveopes at 5.5 by 7.5 – but if that’s the exact size of your invite you will still need to cut them down a bit.

I’d give yourself at least a quarter inch of space for stuffing them into the envelopes. Otherwise, you’re going to have heartache when you try to fit the invite, the rsvp, and other various inserts – because when you increase the bulk of what your putting in the envelope length of the env. will decrease. 🙂

 

Edit: it’s 46 cents for regular 1 oz. envelope of ‘standard size’. If you go over 1 oz. it goes up to 66 cents for 2 oz. Postcards are currently 33 cents to post. (Square, large and other ‘odd’ sizes also cost extra because they have to ‘hand sort’ them)
