Default How much does it cost to send a card to Canada?

A regular card?

And, if it's too thick? What's the additional postage?

I couldn't find it on-line, got too impatient, and figured someone here could help me! TIA!

I just mailed one (in a padded envelope) to Canada. I can't remember totally but I think it was like $1.47 or something. It was actually much heavier than a card so it must be pretty reasonable to mail just a card. I am curious to see if anyone else responds here.

Well, that chart didn't paste up very well. The top numbers 1-5 should line up with the column of figures. The numbers 1-64 along the left size are the maximum number of ounces for each of those costs.

Thanks! So it cost 63 cents, but do you know if they charge extra for the thickness?

You may want to have it weighed at the post office first. If it's thick but still weighs under 1 ounce, then all you need is 65 cents. If you don't want to make the extra trip to the post office, put enough postage on for 2 ounces. Mail to Canada takes a much longer time than domestic mail, and you don't want your pretty creation to sit in limbo or come back to you!
