Beware of Canada Post Regulations
Posted 17 April 2008 - 04:36 PM
I cannot send any type of charm in the mail attached to my invitations [I wanted to use those pretty little seashell charms] because they are against regulations.
Plus- these are the postal requirements for the standard size of mailing in order to only pay the $0.52 of standard rate.
Length-140 to 245mm----5.51 to 9.65 inches
Width- 90 to 156mm-----3.54 to 6.14 inches
Thickness-0.18 to 5mm--0.007 to 0.19 inches
Weight-3 to 50grams
Anything bigger or heavier than this is $1.15 each.
Plus- RSVP cards need to be bigger than:
5 1/2 x 3 9/16 inches. If they are smaller they are $1.15 each.

But I think you should still be able to put the little charms on the invites, as long as they are inside the envelope - shouldn't be a problem!

I'm going to go ahead with the charms. I found an amazing deal on ebay $10.00 for 300 of them, so EVERYTHING is going to get charmed. LoL.
I still think that I'm going to stay away from the shells though. I want to save those for the Thank you cards and the Programs.
Anyone every ordered their shells from Shellhorizons.com before?

I completely feel your pain though. I was going to send out boxed invites using the PaperSource box mailers. On Papersource's website they say they're 3/4 inch thick which means it would cost $1.15 to mail. But, in reality they're a tiny bit thicker so it was going to cost me about $10 per invite to mail!!! My advice is not to open any invite threads started by US girls so you don't get upset about how much better they have it when it comes to mailing invites...lol.
