Next day TO MY SURPRISE all 40 cards are back in MY MAILBOX with a note "return for additional postage - 13 cent surcharge each"

I quickly got a marker and marked through the "hand stamp" and returned them to the postage box.

No wonder folks are sending ecards this year -- next year, I think I will send a photo of my Christmas cards!

Trying to be MERRY!

I put extra postage on my envelopes.
And I add something inside the Envelope to prevent damage to the card. Like a piece of Bubble wrap or Cardstock run through the paper crimper.
