OMG Postage is going up in May!!!

Recommended Posts

So yesterday I took my invitations to the post office to have them weighed (because they seemed HEAVY!) and to buy all of my stamps to send everything out. The lady at the post office was really nice, she said that the invitations needed 78cents worth of postage and handed me these UGLY stamps that were white and had some guy's head (looked like the guy from the US dime) in brown. I told her this envelope that I was mailing was my wedding invitiation and asked her if she had anything "prettier". She suggested that I spend a little extra and put 2 42 cent LOVE or Wedding stamps on the envelope. The LOVE stamps looked better with my envelope color, so I bought 150 of those stamps. I told her I would need 75 stamps for my RSVP envelopes, so she sold me 75 more 42 cent stamps.

 

This lady works at the post office for crying out loud, she could have told me that postage was going to go up in about a month and suggested that I use a "forever" stamp on my RSVP envelope!! Thank God I did not seal the invite envelope!! Now I have to disassemble each and every one of them and put 2 1 cent stamps on all of the RSVP envelopes. Not only will it be a pain in the rear end - its UGLY!!! I know nobody is going to look at the stamps and say OMG, Deanna messed up, but still....I am a perfectionist. I made each and every one of those invites by hand and threw out many "marginal" ones only to have to put ugly 1 cent stamps rant.gif

 

ahh...I feel better, now if I could only have a glass of wine at work blush2.gif

So to top it off, these are pocketfold invites and I did the clousure with a glue dot. Who knew they were SO FREAKIN strong? I have single handedly ruined about 10 invites trying to get these things open to get the RSVP envelope out to put more stamps on. I cried and drank wine, but think I have it figured out...will post pics later.

Ohh yes the glue dots are very intense.

 

I know I thought about sending invites early to save $ but my family and friends are slackers and wait till the last minute and 3 emails and phone calls prior to doing anything so I thought why waste my time, just send it closer so it is a better reminder, what is like 100 x 2 cents anyhow.
