Default Swap cards postage

Hi everyone. I am perplexed about the amount of postage to use for SWAP cards. If I mail them via Flat Rate envelope, do I just include a check for mailing my return cards?

It's been a long time since I did a swap, but I always included an envelope that already had the postage paid. Can you fold up one of the flat rate tyvek envelopes inside with a label on it?

Double check with hostess and she should have included return instructions with Swap info.

In the past when I did swaps, I always mailed to the hostess my swap cards in a priority envelope and then included a self address priority self addressed envelope with postage already adhered to envelope. You can fold the priority envelope into thirds to fit inside with your swap cards.

Default Swap postage

I swap regularly on-line and the current procedure for most groups is to enclose a pre-addressed/stamped env. plus one additional stamp, which is returned, if not needed. At post office, when envelope is weighed, I ask for postage stamp in same amount to put on inside env that is coming back to you. Hope this helps!
