If you're sending just a half-ounce or less (a couple bowls) for someone to try, I seal it up in a snack sized Ziplock, spread it out in about half the bag as flat as you can, fold the bag over, slip into a three-fold sheet of paper, staple or tape the edges of the paper and slide into a standard sized envelope.

I've found it ends up rather flat (i.e. a machine can meter it) the sheet of paper with the closed ends keeps it flat and centered, and the cost is usually about 20-30 cents more than a standard letter. For years I've been putting samples in smaller manila envelopes or small boxes and it always jumps up to $2 or more. Works especially well with whole flakes.
