The hidden cost of postage...

don't let it sneak up on you!!

When you are picking your invitations and reply cards, don't forget to think about postage! If your invitation has a lot of enclosures or is an odd size, chances are you will have to add extra stamps. Make sure, before you start the mailing process, to take one of your final invitations to the post office to have it weighed. This way you know exactly what your cost will be and you won't have to worry about all your invitations making their way back to your house!

A great way to cut this cost just a bit is to use reply postcards instead of the traditional reply cards with envelopes. Postcard postage is roughly $0.16 less than average postage...plus you are saving a bit on printing!

Have a blissful day!
