So i was sitting here earlier today and was thinking about maybe starting the snailmail sweeps as well. But i have no clue on where to start as far as to what to get.
What are some of the most common things other than stamps :laugh: that i will need, like what size envelopes and what size cards and what kind of cards and things like that lol
I think i'm either gonna get some of the stuff tonight or tomorrow night lol so any help would be great :gvibes:

#10 envelopes and/or greeting card sized ones

3x5 plain cards

Postcards- regular post office ones and/or picture postcards

3 1/2 x5 cards

3x5 papers

Those will probably be your main things. A subscription to a snailmail newsletter can also be useful! Best wishes to you!

When you buy your stamps, adjust your budget to accomodate some 24 stamps: current rate for both postcards and addit. oz. of 1st class mail.
