    Weight Limit for one stamp?

    Hi all,

    I've got 2 very small jiffy bags, that with the item included weighs 112g on my home scales.

    Can I just stick a stamp on it?
    or does it need 2 or whatever?

    Cheers

    £1.09 each they will be to post as they will be classed as large letters due to thickness.

    How thick are they when packed?

    Just measured, 4cm thick at thickest part.

    Too heavy & too thick for a standard stamp and too thick for large letter so £1.96 1st class or £1.72 2nd

    In that case they'd be classed as a packet and £1.96 each. Ow.

    I know...........don't forget to factor in that it will take them weeks to deliver it...........if at all. X)

    I sent 7 tea bags in a white envelope to my mum with a 1st class stamp on it. All she got was a post card saying the item was 12p underpaid and there was a handling fee of £1 , and could she (drive a 15 mile round trip to) pay the surcharge, the envelope would then be delivered within 5 days.
    She put their postcard back in a letterbox, and it was delivered to her again yesterday.
    Next time she goes out that postcard is going back in a letterbox.

    lol just read on their site -- What if I don’t pay the fee?
    We will return the item to the sender after one week for Recorded Signed For™ items, and after 3 weeks for all other items.
