Sylph Addressed Stomped Cantaloupe

weather: mainly clear
outside: 16.7°C
mood: tired
So, I have to include a self-addressed stamped envelope for something that's going to be sent back to me from the US (I'm guessing "regular snail mail" is First-Class Mail International).


I'm having issues figuring out what the postage is supposed to be. I know that letters are usually 3½-4oz. but how would I really know for sure? The envelope is 4"x8" and will contain at most two pieces of paper folded up.

It's for this thing.

I have a feeling I'll have to make a run down to Blaine to get this done. *sigh* Crossing the border is not getting any funner these days.

*eesh* I didn't realize how heavy ounces were. Three of my envelopes together are 0.4oz. I think I'll just slap CAD$1.00 on it and that should be more than enough to cover the wobbling exchange rate.

Yeah, I didn't realize how heavy ounces were. I think I'll put CAD$1.00 on it and hope it'll be okay.

You're reading the wrong column. Up to 1 oz is $0.69. Letters are normally under 1 oz.

Wow, I didn't realize how heavy ounces were. I think I'll put CAD$1.00 on it and hope it'll be okay.

Thanks =)

If it is coming back from the US, you'll have to put US postage stamps on it, not Canadian. I don't know all the rules, but I think countries are really fussy about using their own postage.

I think you can buy US stamps at the bigger postal outlets, or they may be able to help you figure out what to do.

I was kinda thinking about that... =P Fortunately, the Canada Post head office is across the street from the VPL main branch which is close to work =)

I was totally going to say the same thing... you can't put Canadian postage stamps on it if it's being sent from the US!

I actually thought I've done it before with Canadian stamps... but maybe not.

In any case, Canada Post wants me to buy a $3.50 "postage coupon" for the recipient to purchase postage in the US.

Bloody highway robbery. I'll just get someone to bring me back stamps when they go south. =\
