A couple of times, I have printed off postage on tyveks, and first class and estimated weight, but the ones I am that iffy about, I have them weigh them at the PO when I drop off, and I pay the difference in person.

For instance, one was a big puffy item that there was NO WAY I could fit into a flat rate envie, but was not heavy enough to warrant the flat rate BOX.
Indeed it was cheaper to use the tyvek triple bagged, and send by zone and weight than to use the flat rate box.

If you look on USPS - The United States Postal Service (U.S. Postal Service) theres a 1800 number and if you order through them its like 100 times faster than ordering it online (still free..)

if you pay at the post office, it's an extra 65 cents. if you pay through USPS.com or use Paypal shipping, then DC is free.

edit - for domestic shipping only.

The Flat Rate EXPRESS envelope which is used for INTERNATIONAL EXPRESS DOES include full tracking and 100 insurance.

If you print it off of USPS - The United States Postal Service (U.S. Postal Service).

PP you can not print the Flat Rate International Express envelope.

Ah, but will you? I doubt that many sellers will but thats besides the point I just meant the folding thing doesn't apply to me as we don't have flat rate envelopes, our postage system is done by weight only (at least Royal Mail is anyway)

I've always used those Ziplock freezer bags and squeezed a ton of air out of it before I zipped them up. They fit fine in the flat rate envelope this way. Is there a reason why the tyvex envelope is better?

I received a sweater once in cut in half tyvek, where the seller had printed first class postage for 2 OUNCES. LOL. A single sheet of paper letter weighs 2 ounces. I turned her in.

I received jeans in a priority BOX with flat rate envelope postage on it. I turned her in.

I've had other packages with flat rate env. postage that were not in flat rate packaging too. I didn't turn anyone else in i don't think, because they hadn't pissed me off some other way

Since you turned them in, you had to pay the difference and then ask for a refund?? Just curious.

BTW, thank you everyone for contributing to this guide! I don't usually fold the crotch but I will try next time

Does anyone have a p.o. that's stingy with the tyvek? I live in a little podunk town and went to get a tyvek envelope, and they keep them behind the counter and when I asked for one she let out a huge sigh like it was such a bother. Glad I wasn't asking for a bunch.

Another time, the guy didn't even know what I was talking about when I asked for one!
He swore they didn't have those and he didn't know what they were. I was so pissed, I ended up having to go to another P.O.

IT doesnt matter if they are stingy, just call USPS and order them, they are free.
There is no reason for them to be stingy.

Tyvek is also waterproof etc.

Pam, what happens to the seller when you turn them in? And what do you do? Just go to the PO and say, "Hey, this package arrived and they commited fraud"? Just curious, because I had someone charge me $15 for shipping for shoes once, and they marked them as 1 pound(more like 4 pounds), and it pissed me off and I would have liked to turn them in. lol
