I might be new "here" but I am not new to sending art in the mail. I will never understand all the complaining or venting or whatever it is I see constantly on "here" about postage. I have never had to take an envelope to the post office and pay 2-3-4-899 dollars to send some mail. In fact there are quite a few people on here who can attest to receiving 6x9 envelopes packed full from me with nothing more than a regular stamp and a 10 cent here and a 5 cent there. Mail is mail is mail. Oh and so is postage. Same goes for international as well.
I guess I’m not reading enough of the discussions / posts on here. I have not seen a great deal of complaints about postage prices. I know there was a recent advice-seeking question regarding costs.
Postage know-how may be a learning curve for some. It may be just a matter of educating themselves. Or perhaps it’s a matter of someone’s financial situation. We m-a folk come in all shapes, sizes, backgrounds, experiences....
