    I have some CD ROMS to mail, so I bought some thin (not corrugated) cardboard CD mailer envelopes at Staples. They say "Do Not Bend" and "First Class Mail" on them, which is fine, but there is no mention of how much postage is required.

    Anybody work for the Post Office, or use these CD envelopes in their business to mail CDs? Will these things go through the mail for one regular first-class stamp? Two? Three?

    I'm clueless when it comes to postal regs...

    It should be the regular 44 cent stamp plus 20 cents surcharge because they can't bend.

    it will be first class, up to 3 oz, IIRC, or if overweight limit just send it parcel post.

    I think you nailed it. I looked this rule up, and apparently up to one ounce and thinner than 1/4" = regular letter postage, but "non-machineable = an additional 20 cents surcharge.

    I have only a few to do, so I guess I'll just stick two stamps on it.

    (I wonder what they'd do if I cut a 44 center in half and used it as a 22 cent stamp? :rofl: )

    Thanks for the info.

    I use the padded envelope that's made for mailing a DVD in the plastic case. It costs about $1.50.
