You might want to take a sample to the post office and see if it changes the postage.  If the envelope is bulky or over .25″ thick, it’s extra postage… and who wants that?! 🙂  They could also give you an idea if it needs to be hand cancelled (if they think it will get snagged in the sorting machines).

@o0olibelulao0o:  do you have a rolling pin?  What about using some pressure and roll over it and see what it does to the envelope.  It sounds super thin though – so you shouldn’t have any issues (i’d guess!).  I’m all about a test-mailing though – try sending one to yourself and see what happens!

I didn’t have any issues with it, but my envelopes were thicker paper and were lined.

I used hemp twine on our 6×9 invitation letterpressed on 220# cardstock with three additional inserts on #110 cardstock in a 80# kraft envelope.  I went to the postal office and they said it was fine and that postage was $0.85 with the new rates this week.  Mailed it out monday and our friends are saying they came through fine. 

I think you’re ok!

I used colored bakers twine. I also used kraft paper envelopes which weren’t any thinker than normal, and they were fine after mailing.
