    Great idea!!! I got some Sarr seeds a few months back and 90% of them were crushed flat... that explains a lot. I'm going to start doing that when I ship seeds from now on.

    FYI -

    On the first ounce of first class postage you can add an additional 20 cent surcharge for "no machine" processing. Mark the envelope "Hand Cancel - No Machine" in two places + the extra 20 cents postage.

    The Post Office has this surcharge for fat or odd shaped letters (perhaps containing a promotional item like a pen) that cannot be put through the rollers.
    Grand Hotel... always the same. People come, people go. Nothing ever happens.

    Bubblewrap wrapped around the seed packet(s) works well too and will fit through the machine without extra postage. I use bubblewrap every time I ship seeds now. So far, so good.
    Where do we go when we just don't know,
    And how do we relight the flame when it's cold?
    Why do we dream when our thoughts mean nothing,
    And when will we learn to control?

    As long as the package is =< 1/4 inch thick there is no surcharge. > 1/4 inch and the USPS will ding you.

    Hmm, I haven't been dinged yet. I've been very lucky to be right at or under the 1/4" mark as I've never paid it much attention. Good to know, thanks!
