It may not be the weight, but maybe the physical dimensions. Are they an odd shape? Mine were a literal square and because they were not the “standard shape” they had to be hand fed into the machines by the postal workers and thus cost more.

๐Ÿ™ It’s ok! That’s a huge bummer, but hang them up to dry, stick on an extra stamp, and send those little bastards back on their merry way! Then you can forget about them until you get your RSVPs back. ๐Ÿ™‚

Agree with Hyperventilate: –> THIS (Reply # 2)

Here is the link to the US Post Office Postage Calculation Page… for envelopes go to the last set of boxes at the bottom and click on the Question Mark (?) beside each icon for more info on what the parameters are for Size, Shape, Weight etc.

US Postal Servcie = http://postcalc.usps.com/

US Postal Service is very fussy it seems about this stuff.

NOTE – Anyone mailing in the US to other countries, should know there is a seperate list of parameters for International Mail, depending on WHERE it is going to.

For example, our Invites were a non-standard size for the US Postal Service (Domestic Mail)… BUT were fully acceptable as International Mail to Canada (as we don’t have the same restrictions in regards to envelope Shape & Size)

The rules at the USPS are mind boggling… IMO.

Hope this helps,

@trixiesrockets:  Before I mailed them I took them to the post office. I had them weigh the RSVPs and I had them weigh the invitations with the RSVPs inside them. I applied forever stamps to the RSVPs, and then a 60 cent stamp on the invitations to send everything.

We went and weighed ours before sending them out. They cost $.85!! Total rip-off.
