So can some one familiar with the mail system explain if i'm allowed to put loose tobacco sample in a plastic bag and send it in a normal letter envelope? and if so what is the weight limit.

I've received tobacco in plain unlined envelopes. As to weight, I suppose it's a matter of what will fit in the envelope and what you're willing to pay. One ounce is supposed to be covered by a 45 cent stamp with an additional 45 cents per each additional half ounce. It's best to mail the envelope at the post office so you get the postage right.

I don't really know the regulations, but I've shipped and received various amounts of tobacco in envelopes. The key is simply to use a strong enough envelope for the amount you're sending. Smile

If I was going to ship tobacco, I would at least buy some padded envelopes ( the ones with the bubble wrap inside) to ship it in. That way you could be assured that it would arrive in good condition.

Unless the regulations have recently changed that should do it.

I've sent and received several samples of tobaccos, but I use and commonly receive the small (4" x 6") bubble-pack mailers instead of a regular envelope.

No problems in shipping or receiving, and nothing special was labeled on the mailers.

A 1st. class - 1 oz. letter is $0.45. Every additional oz. is only $0.20 each.

Just keep in mind that there is a thickness requirement too. I haven't seen it in a while, but at the postage machine we used to have a board that had various cutouts that you would stick a piece of mail through to see whether it would qualify as a Letter or a Flat or something else. The Letter size was pretty narrow but the Flat was a good size, and that wasn't much more postage.

I stand corrected. Thank you. Twenty cents per each additional ounce is much better.

I have to say thank you to mr williamcharles for sending me more tobacco than i sent him. I sent him the Kajun Kake i offered up and what does he do but send more than i gave him my way. Not sure if what i sent him has arrived yet but revenge will be mine. Twisted Evil
