Isn’t it fun when you open your mailbox and there’s a hand-made card waiting for you? Much better than all that junk mail and those darned bills.
Extra thick or lumpy cards may require extra postage and if it’s not added before you mail it, the recipient may be charged when the card is delivered. We don’t want that, do we?
Here’s a quick and easy way to check if your card will make it through the postal guidelines for thickness…
The slot on most paper trimmers is 1/4” wide. This just happens to be the maximum thickness allowed for first class mail cards and letters. Slip the card into the envelope, then slide it through the slot on your paper trimmer. If it fits… it ships!
