USPS flat rate priority mail envelopes, legal size XL $4.95
Deal DetailsLast Edited by boogsbobo January 15, 2011 at 09:43 AM
The normal, advertised size for flat-rate envelopes is 12-1/2" x 9-1/2". These are $4.95 to ship anything that fits.
The unadvertised, LEGAL SIZE envelopes also cost $4.95, and are considerably larger at 15" x 9-1/2". You must ask the postal workers behind the desk for these envelopes, as they are usually not on display.
This doesn't sound like a big difference, but i have been amazed at how much more fits inside the legal size. Consider that for shipping a box or thick object inside of an envelope you need a great deal of width to stretch around the sides. For a given object, the small envelope may fit a 6" wide item, and the legal size could fit an item of the same girth 9" wide - a considerable difference, and in my experience, almost always the cheapest way to ship items that will fit.
Great for saving on shipping with eBay!

One more thing to go well with priority envelopes and boxes are the 2976-E customs clear envelopes. I have been using them for years as envelopes to hold my printed shipping label. No more using expensive sticky labels or using a bunch of time to tape your label on your package. Just print your label, put it inside the 2976-E then peel and stick that to your envelope/package.
