Can anyone tell me how much postage you paid to mail pocket invitations (preferably double envelope)? My invitations are square pockets with reception card, directions card, and rsvp card/envelope. They will have inner and outer envelope. Trying to estimte postage.
I know I should take it to the post office to be weighed, but I won’t have them from my invitation person until about one week before mailing. My post office never has the wedding stamps, so I’m trying to order them ahead of time and have them ready so as not to delay mailing the invitations. I’m guessing abut $1.40 and that’s what my invitation lady guessed too but would like to hear from bees who have mailed them.
Very similar to this:

Angil2000: I just mailed mine out this week. I included what you see below, plus an extra postcard in its own envelope and it cost $0.70 each. The postal clerk said the thickness was borderline but if I squeezed them a bit it should be fine. We’ll see if I get any of them back 🙂

Angil2000: Are you planning to put multiple stamps on each to add up to the postage? I’d say just guess high (I think the $1.40 would be more than enough…) and just order extra, then you can use whatever is left over for your thank you cards (or paying bills, etc…). It isn’t like th postage will expire, so I’d rather have too much than not enough.

We made ours, and they were similar to the PP’s invites (rectangular-within USPS dimension requirements, 5×7), and they were .$75 I think, based on weight. I do know it costs more for square invites because they have to be sorted by hand instead of going thru a machine.

Mine cost $1.19 each for postage, but that was only because of their thickness. I have heard that square envelopes cost more in postage, but I’m not sure how true that is. I’d take one to the post office when you’re able. I measured mine at home and thought they’d only be $.70 each, but didn’t know about the tool the use to measure the thickness.

Mine cost $1.19. (One 70 cent stamp and one forever stamp.) I will share a picture if I can find one.

Square cost more. Look at the cards and pockets website.

Ok here is the what mine looked like (not my invitation, this is a sample image from the vendor). They were square pockets, over 6.4 inches, and overweight. I believe they were shipped under the “flat envelope” category because they were too big and heavy to be mailed as normal letters. The total was $1.19. I got a cute butterfly 70 cent stamp and flower forever stamp.

pearlrose: this looks very similar to mine so guessing mine will cost about the same.
Thanks, all! I know square is 0.20 more and based on what everyone said I think two $.70 stamps should be plenty. I’ll have post office confirm once I have them but at least I can order stamps and be prepare
