I sent out some private seed trades today and since the cost of postage keeps going up, I was VERY surprised at what it costs now. The tiny, and I do mean tiny, bubble envelopes I sent out cost me almost $2.00 plus another $.85 for Delivery Confirmatioin. As I said, these were very small- either parts of BE's made into small ones, or a very small complete BE.
If you are sending very flat seeds - dianthus, poppy, flax, etc. in a plastic zip top bag, can you get away with wrapping them lightly and putting them in a business sized envelope with a first class stamp? I know that daylily seed and echinaceas can't be sent this way, but does anyone have any other ideas for sending them safely?
If anyone can share some ideas on how to beat the high cost of postage and still keep doing a lot of trades, can you please post here?
Thanks in advance,
