That is so insane that they might still mail it!  They really need to have set rules about those sorts of things.

Grr… the first post office I went to said 44 cents.  I thought, great!  Thank goodness I checked at my local post office too… they said they were just over an ounce and would be 61 cents.  aack! glad I checked! (i think I read horror stories on here.  I figured I was paranoid for asking twice, but I guess not!)

oh man!  I’m doubly sure I’m going overkill on my postage then!  I was going to put 88 cents (2 first class stamps) rather than buying the specific 61 cents or whatever.  mine have pocketfolds, so they are pretty heavy, but 88 cents should do it!

Wow – that’s awful! But thank you for sharing – you’ve inspired me to seek multiple postage opinions before sending my invites out.

My mom went to the post office and since I had to have square envelopes it would be 64 cents.  We needed (60) 61 cent stamps and (60) 3 cent stamps for a total of 120.  They gave my mom a hundred and twenty of each!!!  She realizes this, get back in line and then they tell her they will not take them back!  She called me crying.  I felt bad, but luckily i was able to sell the extra on wedding bee  for a little less than we paid for them and I used it to buy be a super cute “Just Married” tank off of etsy.  I am personally not a fan of our local post office.

Oh man. That really sucks that they did that to you. The thought of this happening kind of freaks me out! I think I might just go overkill on the postage too, just to be safe.
