Shipping Tips

A single first-class stamp will send envelopes up to 1/4-inch thick, so long as the envelope has uniform thickness (no lumpy seeds), up to one ounce in weight. If your envelope weighs more than one ounce, add $0.15 for each additional ounce.

If the envelope is lumpy but still under 1/4-inch thick, you can send it as a non-machinable envelope, for $0.17 extra postage (the post office also sells non-machinable forever stamps).

If your seeds are bulky (i.e. beans) and the envelope is more than 1/4-inch thick, or if it weighs more than 3.5 oz, it will need to be sent as a package, which in my experience usually costs between 3-5 dollars.*

*That said, I've seen friends get away with sending non-machinable envelopes with a forever stamp, and thick envelopes for under 2 dollars, so it also just depends on how nice your postal workers are.
