Postage Vent

Recommended Posts

that sucks!!!! and it is very embarrassing and frustrating!!


here's my USPS story:

how bout when we took our invites, we had the post office weigh them and the worker said that we needed 2 stamps for international and one for domestic...

me: are you SURE just one for domestic...

him: yes ma'am.

so FI and I buy 2 books of regular stamps and proceed to place them on all of the domestic invites. couple of days later i take them to the SAME post office and guess what?!? they need 20 more cents!! they make a 64 cent stamp, but it's bigger and different than the ones already on the envelope, so i had to buy 40 extra stamps, UGHH, why can't they get it right the first time!!!

I remember sending out my STDs back in February. I just got back one of them with "Return to Sender: Unidentified address" on it.....mind you its the end of June....AND the address was correct....AND the person only lives two miles away. So um, why did it take four months to get back to mehuh.gif

Sooo to add to the original story....which i found out later on...

Turns out my mother was also humiliated to find out that some of her friends had received the invitation with Postage Due on it...

So, she found it appropriate to go pick up the invitations from those who we knew received it, and take them back to the post office to scream at the postal worker.

Probably not even the postal worker that had anything to do with anything....made them reverse all the charges and re-send the invitation!!!!!!!

Still embarassing, two fold now, but its over - the invites are out, and RSVP's are arriving with no problem (so far)!!


Advice for future brides - opt for rectangle invites if you can! apparantly the reason it happened is because my invites are square and the person doing the initial weighing didnt properly handle the shape!

Same thing just happened to me. I took the invitations to be weighed and bought stamps. Two days later, I took the invitations back to the post office to be mailed, and the clerk told me they didn't have enough postage. The first clerk had given me the wrong amount. Luckily, I caught it before they were mailed out, but I had to buy another $16 in stamps (on top of the $80 I had already spent). The postage clerk felt so bad about her coworker's mistake that she took my invitations and put the extra stamps on for me, saying that it was the least she could do since they had screwed up.


Apparently the error in postage had to do with the fact that my invitations have a tied ribbon inside of them which makes a tiny bump. The first postal worker didn't take that into account and went by weight only. So, for those of you with ribbons, buttons, etc. inside, make sure to ask them to take that into account!!!

    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
