Here is one suggestion for sending business cards so that the posting is a standard second class letter:

  • Add a postcard - this will keep it stiff and stop them shifting.
  • Use an envelope which just fits the postcard.
  • Add three stacks of cards - one in portrait, two in landscape. This should just fit side by side within the envelope. A stack of five cards is the right height for standard thickness of business cards from instantprint.
  • Wrap it in clingfilm.
  • Sellotape the envelope closed.

The reason for doing it this way is that the maximum thickness for a standard letter is 5mm. It's important that your cards don't shift in transit, otherwise the recipient will have to pay postage. The maximum weight for a letter is 100g, but you're unlikely to exceed that.

You can get letter size guides from a post office.

Freegle can refund costs if you keep receipts.
