Dealing with the United States Postal Service

Did you know typical wedding invitations weigh too much to be covered by a forever stamp? That’s right, forever stamps will handle postage for envelopes weighing up to one (1) ounce.

Did you know that the cost of typical wedding invitation postage is 70¢? Seems awfully specific, doesn’t it?

Did you know the USPS offers 70¢ stamps that happen to be designed for wedding invitations? It’s true. It’s true.

And, did you know that fun design elements like putting a return address stamp on the back of your wedding invitation yields a 50/50 chance the return address will be interpreted as the destination address if it’s read incorrectly by the sorting machines?

I may do a more in depth post on everything we learned through the wedding invitation process, but there’s enough knowledge here to help out someone down the road. Hopefully.
