the cost of sending christmas cards.
« on: Nov 25, 2018, 08:19:08 AM »


Im sure many people will have written out their Christmas cards by now, and others most likely either going to do it, whilst others possibly will simply stop writing cards,


as the cost  is getting considerable due to the increase in the price of stamps, however  cards them selves have got cheaper and there are some very nice cards to be seen,


Q; do you think the price of sending cards is too much as stamps aren't getting any cheaper,
      at all,.

We don't send many these days, and as you say, the cards themselves are relatively inexpensive.

We buy Christmas cards in January for the following season.  Most are for neighbours and friends in the village so we distribute them by hand.  Only a few are posted and once a year, I don't mind the cost too much.

(When I was a student back in the 60's, I used to work as a temp. postie at Christmas.
Those were the days of two posts a day and loads of cards to be delivered.  Can't remember the cost  - 4d. for a card ??)

Most of mine are hand delivered.. First Class is rip off.  I heard that both first and second are treated the same..  I send mine early by second class..

Same here. I doubt many do anything else apart from Liz.
