You can get a rough idea from the USPS postage calculator here: http://postcalc.usps.gov/

But I’d definitely recommend taking a sample of your final invite to the PO and ask them what the postage would be.  We did this with blank pieces of cardstock cut to the size of the final invites and inserts (cause the design wasn’t done yet).  Postage price takes into account weight, size and THICKNESS of the envelope so you really need your own estimate from the PO. 

Good luck

If you didn’t know already square envelopes automatically incur an additional fee. And with pocketfolds you will most likely go over in weight too for 44cts.

Can’t help you with acutal postage because we’re not doing square or pocketfolds.

I had square 6.5″ invites with a few enclosures and they were $1.05 to mail. Squares automatically cost 20 cents more but if it’s an oversized square.. eek.

Honestly, I wouldn’t go the post office to ask. I hear too many stories about them tacking on extra charges. Following the guidelines on the USPS website, you are probably looking at $.81 a piece. I am guessing with your enclosures you will go over an ounce for each envelope, and then there is a surcharge for the envelopes being square. As long as the envelope has some bend to it (no rigid objects–think rigid like a pen) and the address is written in normal position to a stamp, you should be all set.

I totally didn’t think about this when we were planning our invitations. Our 6.5″ squares with a few enclosures cost $1.05. I’m fairly certain weddings are keeping USPS in business… save the dates, invitations, and all the thank yous 🙂

ours are costing us $1.05 to mail, ugh. I’d only budgeted the $0.64 it costs to mail a square envelope (under 1 oz and under 6 1/8″), not the extra for over 1 oz and over 6 1/8″. Doh. I found the guys at the auxiliary post office (in the campus book store) to be more helpful and laid back than the people at the main post office, they’re just so busy!
