For our friends in the US, it's standard mail rates,

But, for our friends in Canada it's .80 per ounce.

Our friends in the U.K., Spain, and Australia it's .98 per ounce...

Oh, and it's good to put U.S.A. after your zip on the return address...

(sigh, from a confused person that doesn't know WHAT country she's in...*smile*)

Hugs, Kathi

    LOL
    Yep, the postal rates from the US to all those 'exotic' places were a puzzler so had to make a trip to the post office to let them figure it out. Also didn't want to have to cover the front of the envelope with multiple 'regular rate' stamps!

    As I recall from last year, those in Canada, UK, Spain, etc had to pay significantly higher rates to the USA. For you folks, just scan a card onto your expressions page and let us know we can 'pick up' our Christmas card there...lol.

    Hugs to all,

    You can't use "Forever" Stamps internationally
    Unless this has changed recently, you must use stamps with denominations noted for international postage. You can't use "Forever" stamps, which have no specified amount on the stamps.

    Just an FYI...
