Square invitations are more expensive to mail
Yess apparently somehow the square invitations can't be run through the machine and need to be hand cancelled and cost more...
Here you go from the USPS website:
Tips and Tools for Measuring
Use these rulers and guide boxes to measure letters and large envelopes.
Once a piece of mail exceeds the maximum length, height, or thickness of one shape, it automatically gets classified as the next largest shape.
Minimum size for Postcards and Letters
5" long x 3-1/2" high
Maximum size for Postcards
6" long x 4-1/4" high
Maximum size for Letters
11-1/2" long x 6-1/8" high
Maximum thickness for Letters
Maximum thickness for Large Envelopes
Large Envelopes exceed one of the letter size maximum dimensions.
Unusual Shapes and Sizes
Sometimes a piece of mail requires additional postage because it is a certain shape or size that is difficult to process on mail sorting machines. To make sure you’re paying the correct postage, visit pe.usps.com. These are examples of mail that could require additional postage:
· Square envelopes
· Envelopes on which the address is written parallel to the shorter edge square
Okay I'm going to the regular size invitation... I wanted to have a square invitation... this is bull....
