I am pretty sure there is not an extra fee to have them hand-cancelled.  The 66 cent stamp is based on the bulkiness and/or size of your invitations.

The post office is phasing out the hand cancelling, but please realize that, at some point (likely several), your invitations will ALWAYS go through a machine. There should NOT be a fee for hand cancelling anyway, but it’s pointless to have done.

There isn’t an extra fee for hand cancelling.  The $0.66 stamp was for the additional weight.  Also, something to keep in mind – hand cancelling does not guarantee that it won’t get run through machines.  It just means that it’ll skip some of them.

All of my invites were printed on heavy stock and none of my guests (that I have seen so far) have gotten ‘wrinkly’ invites… Is this something you have seen before? I am wondering where the concern of ‘wrinkles’ is coming from?

@mrsfun:  nope. the $0.66 stamp just means your stuff is getting mailed, and will go through the machines. when i asked for non-machinable, they told me they are phasing that service out and it won’t be offered any more. everything will get machined. :/

@mrsfun:  So sorry I responded incorrectly!  I would just go to the post office and talk to someone.  Hopefully you will get it sorted out (no pun intended!).

Yeah, I don’t think the 66 cent stamp will mean that it’s not going through machines. I know with photos there is a stamp or sticker or something that they put on that says “Do not bend”, so you may need to get something like that.

@mrsfun:  Good luck!  Because of the “stiffness” of my invitation suite, I had to pay $2.07 PER INVITATION in postage.  I think they saw a fool (me) coming, and took advantage.
