Stamps work with single-piece First-Class Mail — basically, a standard letter. If you’re using a common no. 10 envelope, your mail will be eligible for letter pricing. Letters can weight up to one ounce. Technically, letters must be a rectangle. They can be up to 6-1/8 inches high by 11-1/2 inches wide; but there are minimums too: 3-1/2 inches high x 5 inches wide. If these rules aren’t met, other charges can apply, so a single stamp won’t be enough to deliver your item. is the best way to manage all your mailing needs.
