    Hate to tell you, but postage went up to 39 cents back in January. As long as the envelope doesn't weigh more than 1 ounce yo will be OK.

    personally if it were me, I would just go the post office and take one of the envelopes there with the magnet in it. have them weigh it, then you'll know for sure.

    Mail 200+ and you can get a bulk rate.

    I'm pretty sure the magnet cards are too heavy for one stamp......

    an ounce is .0625 so you should be fine.

    You should not mail magnets in a regular envelope. The Post Office sorts all mail on machinery and it will rip open anything with an odd shaped item in it. You need to pay 52 cents each for them which is the rate for odd shaped mailings and have them hand sorted at you local post office.
