whoop whoop, just sent out 2 #000 size bubble mailers as large envolopes for only 2.22 each.
Yesterday i went to my post office and calmly asked the lady about shipping those mailers under 2 oz. she said she couldnt do it because it couldnt fit in the smallest mail slot. She told me to try fed-x or UPS.
I didnt go to fed-x or UPS but i did come back and get more information from this site. So this morning i went down there, asked them to send it as a large envelope and they did. Best thing is, there were 3 of them around and i explained everything to them, so all of them are on board on how i want my packages shipped, and when the lady asked if i tried fed-x or UPS i said no, they thanked me for staying with the post office and she gave me a jolly rancher :)
Sometimes a little explanation and a calm attitude go along way.

Finally...I got it today. 1.7 oz bubble mailer #0, had 1 jersey card, 5 or so base cards on either side of the top loader. team bag to keep them together. I took it in, asked for 1st class international large envelope. Said sure...what is in it? I said a letter and some photos in a protective sleeve. She said OK, $2.25. No customs form. Hope it gets to its destination!Hidden Content

After two trips to two different locations that failed (despite talking to the clerks about what has been pointed out numerous times already), I've avoided the PO and clerks altogether since then - I bought a sheet of the new 1.10 international stamps and I've been sending out lower-end cards either in a well protected PWE or in a bubblemailer as a intl large envelope. So far none have come back and all have made it to where they needed to go (both Canada and Europe) with no issues about damage (based on feedback rec). I sent out I believe around 5-6 packages that way, dropped off in different locations around where I live and work.
So I believe that will be my plan going forward (for the lower-end items or items under the weight limit).Set Killers: 06/07 BTP Giacomin Greats Auto, 11/12 BTP Jumbo Stick Niemi & StickWork Enshrined Silver Shutt
