Those weren't her exact words, but she just mentioned that homemade cards and ones from the store that resemble them and are thicker are getting returned or delivered with postage due.
I've been mailing homemade cards for a few years now and would be mortified if someone had to pay for extra postage. She said she even had a college boy come in to pay his postage due, complaining that he had to pay an extra dollar to get his card.
Just curious if you ladies had that problem.

I've never had a problem with my cards, but I have 10 cent stamps that I usually stick on ones that are more than a quarter of an inch thick. My mailman is pretty good at leaving them if he doesn't think there's enough postage. It's only happened once in the nearly 13 years we've lived here!

So far no one has told me they've had to pay extra postage, but I try not to be overly dimensional anyway on cards I'm mailing- as they could get crushed and not look good on arrival. Usually when my card is thick is because I put a fat letter in it LOL

I guess our postmaster is a stickler.

Cassondra I sent you a pm. Was wondering about the tags. I never received the remainder. If some ladies didn't send one for me, I would like the ones I made back. Please let me know! Thanks!

I send out Birthday cards with a little something in them, I go to the PO and I have them stamped hand sort and pay .20 extra. Its worth the extra .20 to have them not torn going through the sorting machines.

Well, I'm heading to see Pookahbot tomorrow, and I threw some stuff in a bag specifically to make cards. Hopefully, I'll be able to get them done, plus the monthly sketch challenge, along with the sketches for Let's Capture These Sketches.

And I have another big project due on Monday. I feel like I'm going to lose my mind, I hate Photoshop so much right now, and it's one of my favorite programs!

I've still got my Christmas cards to make and I'll be working on them today after I finish a LO.

Hope Thanksgiving went well for everyone. I made so much food it didn't look as if we made a dent in it.
