I think if you want to mail as the OP said,you will have to inform the clerk that it can be done...
Im in New Jersy,went to the PO today to mail 1 card to Newfoundland,and 1 to British Columbia..The clerk told me that any bubble mailer is automatically a package...My custom forms were already on the mailer...I told him to PLEASE try it as a large envelope..He did and presto...$2.05 for each.....Its worth a try...and he didnt have to even type in all the info on the customs form...Hope this helps.

I sent this link to a US seller on ebay about his $7 cost and for him to read the link. I don't think he took the time to read the link as he said he uses a padded envelope and that is the first material listed.
I then mentioned in a reply about the part that the cost went up to $7 due to the customs form. He gave me the following line: WELL I AM SORRY TOO SAY THEY MAKE ME USE A CUSTOM FORM EVERYTIME I JUST DONT PUT A STAMP ON IT AND HOPE IT MAKES IT TOO YOUR FINE COUNTRY WE HAVE RULES HERE THANKS.
Wish he just read the link.
Helped me to decide that I am not buying from any sellers who charge $7 to ship one card. They are not even trying to find a cheaper way to ship.Looking for Certified Hockey:

I might have to run a test of this as well. I take my packages to the PO, but at around 4:45 AM when I'm on the way to the train. No clerk to reason with at that point and unfortunately no PO within walking distance of the office. Any suggesstions on how to request non-machinable other than writing it on the package when dropping bubblers in the drop chute? Thanks for your efforts on this!

Why not try this??Instead of dealing with a window clerk,why not just buy a bunch of 2 or 3 dollar stamps and just slap one on and see what happens..I know it seems to simple,but whats the worst case scenario?It gets returned..Might be worth a try
