Mail costs ...........

I don't want to be mean - I love putting little extras into the envelope when I send my partner's block - BUT, when I mailed my March block to Canada this morning it cost $6.20.
The same envelope locally would be $1.20.
I don't think there was a mistake, it was at the same LPO that I always use, the people there are lovely.
I am not asking to partnered only within Australia, but at this rate I will have to send only the swap block.

Hi Jan
I popped a comment on your blog as you are a no reply blogger. I have given you some info about international swaps. Sue

Jan,
I mailed a block from USA to Canada today and it only cost me $1.30 and I did send extras.
As long as your envelope is a regular envelope or even a birthday card size this is what it would cost. Where it gets you is the weight. Try and keep the weight to what it would be if sending ruffly a 10 page letter.

Hope this helps.

I posted an envelope to Sweden yesterday with only the swap block in a plastic bag and it cost me $6.20 as well. Postage is getting ridiculous.
