What’s the cheapest way to post my bread tags?
There are three options : small letter ($1.10), large letter ($2.20) or parcel (minimum cost $8.95 for up to 5kg) – these are 2020 prices. If you are sending under 100 bread tags, a small letter should be sufficient.
A small letter is a standard business envelope (like bills come in), max size 130x240mm. The max thickness for a small letter is 5mm, and the max weight 250g.
A large letter can be A5 or A4 size, max size 260x360mm. The max thickness for a large letter is 20mm (2cm), and the max weight 500g.
100g of bread tags is about 270 tags, so weight is not usually the issue when sending small quantities, it’s the thickness you need to watch. So the best way is to fold a piece of paper round your tags so they fit quite tightly and stay flat. Then put the folded paper into the envelope.
If you are sending a parcel, you can use an Australia Post plastic satchel or a cardboard box. We prefer not to get the packaging which has bubble wrap inside paper as this cannot be recycled because it is plastic and paper glued together.
