I'm still ok with sending May 20th.   I'll probably have to send out earlier, as I'm headed to Montreal for a few days on the 17th.  But early swap packages usually aren't a problem. Wink

Okay bear with me here I'm a little confused.

What do you mean by "regular sized" envelope?

Because a letter sized envelope should only cost .51 or whatever the going postal rate is these days.

Are we talking the 9.5 x 11's here?

Anything that fits through the pretend letterbox slot they have at the post office. Have you ever had a thick envelope and they tried to wedge it through the pretend slot to see if it fits? Apparently something that is under 0.500kg and under 2cm in height can be mailed for $2.49 if it is "lettermail." The $0.51 stamp has a 30g weight limit on it.

This link has the lettermail rates.

So the idea is to craft things that are slender enough to go through as lettermail.

Just to clear this up in my head, we'll be using the 'oversize' envelopes, right?  Is that like a manila envelope?

 I was thinking of a manilla envelope too (those are, um... 24x30cm, or so?). But you could always chat with your partner about what size envelope you were going to use...  i.e. maybe you'll both want to send a business letter size envelope. I think whatever kind of lettermail works for you is okay.  I mean, if you craft some amazing tiny things that fit in a greeting card envelope, that's REALLY outsmarting Canada Post!   Cheesy

Does that sound okay to people? that we use whatever size envelope we agree on with our partners, as long as its lettermail?

When living in SK, I know my friend and I paid quite the fortune to send things to ON and my mom got ripped offn some things by Canada Post. It's about time someone sticks it to the man. I'm just not exactly sure what you'd put inside the envelope.
