I mistakenly printed a wrapper with PBS postage without checking the weight.  I printed first class postage for a 7 oz mailing, but need a Media Mail setting for 14 oz.  What do I do now?

 

Thanks,

Steven

You can make up the difference with regular stamps.

7oz first class package = 2.24

1lb media mail (only goes by pounds) = 2.57

so sticking a 33 cent stamp (or a first class 44c might be easier) on the wrapper AND crossing out the FIRST CLASS and replacing with media mail might be your best bet. you can still mail in the blue box (ie not have to go to the PO) when you do this.

hope this helps.

Exactly what I wanted to confirm.  Thanks,
