New USPS Postal Rates Regarding Re-Inforced Non-Machineable PWE To Canada
Just returned from the Post Office and am more than shocked.
Not $1.10 for 1 Card in a Re-Inforced PWE, now $1.30 .....Increased from #1.05 or 25 cent increase.
Here's the Rates:
PWE to Canada - 1 Card, 2 Pieces of Cardboard, 1 Top-Loader - $1.30
PWE To Canada - 2-5 Cards - 2 Pieces of Cardboard, 1 Top-Loader - $1.30 - this weight is 1.15 ounces, just under 2 ounces.
Now the Shock
Smallest Bubble Envelop to Canada or Europe with 1 card and 1 Top-Loader - $6.55 USD
That's a 118.5% Increase in one day from the old rate of $3.00.
The US Domestic Increase on a PWE? One Cent to .66 Cents. Lol

When you mail the PWE to Canada, do you have to do anything special for the address or include a form? Does the envelope have to be handwritten on (as required for registered mail) or can I continue to use avery labels?

No Forms, takes only 5 days from Oregon here where I am to Toronto. That's 2,646 miles - 6 days to Nova Scotia, which is about 3,600 miles.
Yes you can use Avery Labels, or hand-write it.

Did you try shipping one card in one bubble in a nonmachinable? (If it fits of course)

Also, one other annoying question: Do I have to give the envelopes to a post office teller or can I just drop it off in the mail chute?

then you are lucky. I had to ask one day why my white envelope cost 3.30. They said it was because I put the customs form on - which they said was needed. Apparently USPS chamges their requirements so frequently even their own employees can't keep up.Bucket Hidden Content
