I've never seen reinforced PWE's. Is this something you buy or do you add a piece of cardboard in it to make it stiffer?

However, for higher end cards with autos and material, I would rather them shipped in a bubble mailer. I have no problems paying $6 in shipping if I paid more than $20 for a card.

Wait until Canada has another substantial increase. Shippers in Quebec that have been charging $4.50-$7.00 on a $2.05 cost bubble envelop will now be charging $10.00.
The ripping off is being done by Canadians at home, not by many in the know down here in the USA, Quebec of course being by far the biggest instigator of out to lunch shipping prices.

I think today you can buy $1.10 stamps which will go on any envelop to Canada that is not oversized and over 2 ounces.

Doesnt the reinforced envelope method weigh more than 2ozs though? When I ship in a bubble mailer, I always ship 3 or 4 ozs.

No, the re-enforced PWE is not 2 ounces. Besides, the Bubble is not an envelop, it is shipped from the USA as a package or box, so the weight is insignificant as it was minimum $3.00 last week, who knows how much this week.
Envelop - An Envelop & Cheap
Bubble Envelop - A Package and Expensive.
It's called a Bubble Envelop, but in the USA it's a Bubble Package. Some may have Dufus Postal Workers that actually ship it as an envelop, but that is risky as it can easily be returned for insufficient postage.

PWE shipping without uploading tracking will affect your DSR rating and seller discount. Keep in mind Ebay want's tracking for everything.
I can see paypal geting bombed with phone calls for item not receivd and trying to explain how I shipped in a PWE to help save my customers a few bucks.
