Medium flat rate is $11.30. I use a lot of padded flat rate envelopes, they run $5.70. Both of those are click n ship prices, it's slightly more at the p.o.

I received lots of plants in regular padded envelopes. I think shipping was only $2 or $3 for them.

I've used these padded envelopes with a couple pieces of cardboard as bracing on sides, 2 freezer bags facing in opposite directions within each other, and the damp paper towels are great for wrapping plants..

I ship out 20-25 packages of plants a week and 95% of the time I use the 7x7x6 priority boxes. The plants don't need any extra water, so the weight is usually pretty low. Consider insulating the boxes with styrofoam, it helps keep them from getting cooked in the heat. And I don't recommend shipping in bubble mailers/1st class unless it's something super hardy, the travel time is usually longer, the package gets slung around a bit more, and they put them in the mailbox which can be a death sentence.

Do you weigh the packages before you take them? How much do they ususally cost?
