It’s just the 64 or 65 cent stamp. That’s what we used

Go to a post office and ask. But honestly, I’ve never heard of such a thing. There are plenty of square birthday cards and they take the normal stamp as well. Now, weight is a different question. If due to everything included in your invite that it weighs more THEN it might cost more. But based on shape? No.

According to the usps website 

A letter will be charged a nonmachinable surcharge if it’s a square letter 5″ x 5″ or larger, it doesn’t bend easily, has clasps or similar closure devices, has an address parallel to the shorter dimension of the letter, is lumpy, or the length divided by height is less than 1.3 or more than 2.5.

My invites were square and they were $1.10 each to mail. I don’t think the weight mattered in my case- just the shape, but for reference we had: outer envelope, inner envelope, invite, reception card. rsvp card and envelope and hotel info printed on cardstock.  I knew it would cost more, but for someone who hasn’t been too picky about a lot of things, I just really liked square envelopes better!

You can go to the post office’s website, put in your exact dimensions and weight, and it will tell you the cost.  It’s much easier than guessing! 🙂
