Postage question

Okay,this might sound stupid, but, how much does it cost to send a card over seas? Is it the same as here in the states?

It costs more to send it overseas. Check at www.usps.com or call your post office. It depends on the weight.

Stacey, if you are using an APO/FPO address, it might be the same. Otherwise, it's probably different.

You might go to the USPS website to see if there's any information to help you.

I'm glad you mentioned that. I didn't even think of that when responding.

I bring whatever I am mailing to the post office to be sure. It is more than just a regular stamp.

OMG, I didn't realize all the differences in postages for different countries.
I think I will take all my "out of the USA" people to the post office

I've sent boxes to Aftghanistan that was cheaper than sending it to California because it was an APO box. So as long as it is a military address it will be the same or cheaper as sending it somewhere here! Otherwise you might as well fly the package there yourself ...might be cheaper!!
