Can I use the ones to send letters (42 or 44 cents) or is it different stamps?

How many stamps will I need?          I'm thinking about 6.

I'm going to use the Print only Delivery Confirmation onto the wrapper option.

Yes Juana you may use regular postage stamps of any denomination.  How many will depend on the weight of your package. 

Not over 7 oz, can be mailed cheaper using first class 2.24 + .19 for DC = $2.43. . .or 6 x .44 cent stamps, or 5 x .44 and an additional .23

Over 7 oz, but under 1 lb. is 2.38 + .19 for DC = $2.57. . .or 6 x .44 cent stamps, or 5 x .44 and an additonal .37

Remember, if your package is over 13 oz, it cannot be dropped in a blue box but must be handed directly to a postal employee.

But I see you've been suspended Juana, so PBS postage is no longer an issue.
