Hello! I’m really new to this site..as this is my very first post. I’m making my own wedding invitations and I’m really worried about envelopes and postage. My largest piece of paper is going to be 5.5 x 7.5 inches. I was thinking either an A9 or an A10. But I’ve also seen some 6 x 9 envelopes as well. But now I’m starting to get worried about postage. Have any of you mailed any of these size envelopes and if so was it just one stamp?
Thanks in advance for all your help! I’m starting to get nervous! I’m ordering my envelopes online so I don’t want to make a mistake

I would go to the post office tomorrow and ask them. They have a card that shows the dimensions of acceptable “normal” envelopes. Square is bad… But they’ll be able to help!

@jaded_chick19: Could you cut a thin slice of each side? Normal A7 envelopes are 5.25 br 7.25 and you can buy ‘outer’ enveopes at 5.5 by 7.5 – but if that’s the exact size of your invite you will still need to cut them down a bit.
I’d give yourself at least a quarter inch of space for stuffing them into the envelopes. Otherwise, you’re going to have heartache when you try to fit the invite, the rsvp, and other various inserts – because when you increase the bulk of what your putting in the envelope length of the env. will decrease. 🙂
Edit: it’s 46 cents for regular 1 oz. envelope of ‘standard size’. If you go over 1 oz. it goes up to 66 cents for 2 oz. Postcards are currently 33 cents to post. (Square, large and other ‘odd’ sizes also cost extra because they have to ‘hand sort’ them)
