That’s very strange. The calculator I used for my invites says use a normal stamp. The USPS website shows 3.5″x5″ as the minimum. From the stories I’ve heard on here I wouldn’t be surprised if you went to a different post office and receive a different answer.

ETA: it says it can go through the machine if it is larger than the minimum HxW I gave. Usually if it can go through the machine it is a regular price stamp. Did you all why it’s an extra cost?

@Pinkmoon:  whoops didn’t even think to look at your country! Sorry about that. Perhaps you could still try a couple different post offices though 🙂

@Pinkmoon:  My rsvp cards were definitely smaller than yours ( I want to say maybe 3″ by 4.5″ or something – they were small). I put a regular stamp on them and had no issues. I did notice that most of the stamps wern’t actually cancelled by the machine though, but they all were delivered safely with regualr postage.
