How to Send Letters to Canada

Determining the Required Postage

Are you wondering how many stamps you’ll need to send a letter to Canada? Look no further! We’ve got all the information you need to ensure your mail reaches its destination safely.

The easiest and most cost-effective way to send letters from the USA to Canada is by using Global Forever Stamps. These stamps are priced at $1.45 each and can be used for international mail. However, unlike other countries, Canada offers a Buy One Get One (BOGO) deal on the first 2 ounces of mail. So, if your letter weighs less than or equal to 2 ounces, you only need one Global Forever Stamp!

But what if your letter weighs more than 2 ounces? In that case, you’ll need to add additional postage. Let’s break down the postage requirements for different weights:

1 ounce ($1.50)

For a 1-ounce letter, you can use one Global Forever Stamp along with one 5¢ stamp. This combination ensures that your letter reaches its Canadian destination with ease. Consider using a Global Forever Stamp with a charming round green succulent design alongside a bundle of purple grapes stamp featuring the value of 5¢.

2 ounces ($1.50)

Similarly, if your letter weighs 2 ounces, you can use one Global Forever Stamp and one 5¢ stamp. These stamps will cover the necessary postage and guarantee a smooth delivery. The round green succulent Design and the bundle of purple grapes stamp would be perfect for this.

3 ounces ($2.15)

For a letter weighing 3 ounces, you’ll need a combination of one Global Forever Stamp, one Domestic Forever Stamp, and two 2¢ stamps. By using these stamps, you’ll ensure that your letter reaches its Canadian recipient without any hassle. Consider opting for a round green succulent Global Forever Stamp alongside a patriotic USA flag-themed Domestic Forever Stamp.
