For Omiyage – $8 Flat-Rate Shipping Envelopes

Padded Envelope USPS

Now that my kid is in college, we ship more things to the mainland than ever before. I’ll let you in on a little-known bargain: $8 flat rate Priority Mail padded envelopes. They’re 9.5×12.5 inches big and hold about as much as the medium size boxes which ship at $14.95. There is a catch, however.

The envelopes are not available at the Hawaii Kai or Kaimuki post offices for casual pick up. Instead, go to USPS.COM and visit the postal store. The envelopes themselves are free, in 10- or 15-packs. They’re quite durable and flexible. I’ve been able to canisters and other round objects with no problem. For your typical hang-bag kakimochi and cuttlefish, they’re the perfect shape and size.
