I'm thinking of ordering cards (folded cards with envelopes) for my shop. I've heard that it's more expensive to mail 5x5" square cards than 5x7" cards. Looking at the usps site, I'm not sure what it's saying :)

many poeple mail square cards in rectangle envlopes. Hallmark has a few brands of square cards where the bottom of the enveloped is glued together so it fits the square perfectly BUT mails as a rectangle.
I personally do not send square cards but hand deliver them all the time. I love square cards.
