I was told that any international invites need to handle the RSVP postage themselves, because there’s no way for you to get their international stamp.

@JerzyLady:  i think you do too, and that’s why i did online RSVPs! i stressed about this for days with no solution!  i am currently living in the states for an internship, but ALL my guests lived in Canada!  

if you really want Canadian stamps, maybe there is someone you can ask who can mail them. OR for these guests, include the response card with no stamp and they can put a stamp themselves, but maybe give them the option to RSVP by phone as well?

I have relatives in Canada and I had to leave the stamps off. The only stamps the post office will accept for the RSVP from Canada is with Canadian postage. I didn’t have enough relatives there to justify purchasing Canadian stamps, so that is why I left them off. Everyone was really understanding. I am sure your Canadian relatives will be understanding too, if you leave them off.

WHAAAAT?  Omg I never even thought of this.  I was totally going to put american stamps on all the internation RSVP cards.  In fact I just ordered the stamps yesterday!

I guess this is common sense but is there any referrence to this online where I can read about this?  So is everyone just not putting stamps on the international RSVP envelopes?  We have about 20 international invitations we’re sending.  I will feel kinda bad if I don’t put a stamp on there.

Oh, I never even thought of this! I have an aunt in Italy; I guess I will be leaving her stamp off of the RSVP.

@Meowkers: 

it costs someone in the US 80 cents to send a postcard to Canada, while it costs someone in Canada 1.03$ to send the exact same thing to the US.

To be honest, I do have to laugh at the concept that US stamps would be ok for mail in another country. Do you use stamps from any other country in the US?

You can order Canadian stamps to use on your RSVP’s from Canada Post.

If anyone asks nicely, I would be happy to send you some. :}
