Default Can I mail

Can I actually mail a 3X3 inch card?

I love tiny things and these are no exceptions so I'd love the answer!

If you don't find the answer at that link (although, I think the answer is no, not in that size envelope) just put your card in a bigger envelope.

Just pop it into a regular size envelope! I don't know that I would try sending it in a tiny envey, but I'd just mail it in a reg. size one.

I know that in Canada you can mail 3x3 cards but it costs you extra postage to do so. I would do like the others suggested and put the 3x3 in a regular size envelope and send it that way.

4 years ago when I bought my first house, I made 3x3 cards to send out with my new address. After they were all done, the post office said no, they could not be mailed in a 3x3 envelope, they would get caught in the mail machine. So I mailed them in an A2 size envelope.

I believe the smallest size envelope that you can send through the U.S. mail is 3 x 5.

Actually I think the minimum size is 3.5" on one side, whether a square or a rectangle envelope.

ETA: Minimum Height is 3.5"

Amazing, but about a year ago I got a 3x3 envelope in the mail with a girl scout patch in it -- there was barely enough room on it for the mailing address & stamp but it came thru just fine -- although I almost lost it because it was so small!
