Greeting cards

If a greeting card such as a birthday card or Christmas card weighs 25 grams or less and is completely sealed, you can post it as a standard-sized air letter. This is applied to rectangular-shaped cards only. The item should be identifiable as an announcement or greeting card by having the phrase “Greeting Card” (or a similar phrase, such as “New Year’s Card,” “Xmas Card,” “Birthday Card) clearly displayed on it, or by telling the staff the nature of the item when mailing it.
