It's about the weight.
41 cents covers the first ounce.
You can find most postage rules at www.usps.gov

The price of the stamp is not based on the size of the envelop but the WEIGHT of the envelope.

I suppose you have to go to your nearest post office to weigh it and ask the person to quote you the correct price of stamps.

You need to go to the P.O and get them to weigh it. they will sell you a sticker that works as a stamp.

How do you classify a 6x9 bubble mailer in USPS First Class Mail? As a package or a large envelope?

Can I also drop it off in public mailbox? The weight is only 1 oz.

You do not provide enough information to make a determination. These days, you also need to consider the thickness and the rigidity.

If less than 1/4" thick, a 6x9 would still be classified as a Letter.

If over 1/4", then it depends on if the package is uniform in thickness & flexible. If so, then it is a Flat/Large Envelope.

If over 1/4" and lumpy or rigid, then it is a Parcel.

In any case, if it is greater than 3/4" at any point, it is a Parcel.

USPS postage for 6x9 inch envelope?

New postby Janie » 25 Oct 2012, 06:37

We would like to send from time to time price lists and company brochures (trifolds) to our clientes.we just started our business, and first time shipping using this envelope sizes. Something tells me that is going to be more than .39 cents.way more.
Any input will be appreciated guys. Thanks in advance.
Thanks.but the weight is pretty much nothing you know?.by weight would be .39usd.but I do believe that the USPS goes more by the size of the letter itself, maybe abnormal size is more expensive or something of the sort.it has to do with the machines they use.But I have no idea how much that would be for this type of envelopes.

ALL YOU NEED TO DO IS WEIGH IT...THEY SELL SCALES AT THE POST OFFICE FOR LIKE $20.00 SO THAT WAY IF YOU ARE SENDING OUT DIFFERENT PIECES YOU KNOW EXACTLY HOW MUCH POSTAGE YOU NEED...

Can I Mail a flat 6x9 inch package(college application in a tan bubble mailer envelope) through the mail?

OR do I have to take it to the post office?
I live in TN if that makes a difference.

it's like one of these:
http://www.thefind.com/office/browse-scotch-bubble
OK,first of all,i asked because it's NOT a regular white envelope.so your attempt to make me look stupid has failed.
second of all,i have no clue what the "correct" postage(1 stamp?2 stamps?) is since i don't mail things like this on a regular basis.that's why I'm on here asking.so someone who actually can help would be nice =]

As long as you have the correct postage, which is based on size and weight, you can mail it without going into the post office.
