When I first started my Etsy shop I was always confused about shipping, so I thought I’d talk a bit on my experience shipping greeting cards and flat, paper products (stickers, small prints, gift tags, misc stationery) for beginners or anyone else who’s interested!
Here’s a quick recap of what I’ll be talking about:
- Shipping First Class Letter vs. First Class Package, what’s the difference? I break down my thoughts (the pros and cons) on using both.
- What I use: I’ve included links to all the tools and products I use when shipping and where you can save on costs when starting out.
USPS First Class Shipping Methods
I personally ship all of my greeting cards and notebooks First Class Package. I also know a few people who have no problem shipping greeting cards First Class Letter. I talk about some of the differences below. Keep in mind everyone’s preference and circumstance is different and I encourage you to use the method that works for you!
