As a general rule, you should go to the post office and weigh your invitation suite sets before purchasing postage to ensure you buy enough. You should also have an idea of how many stamps you will be putting on your envelopes (if it is more than one), and make sure your calligrapher knows that information so they can shift address calligraphy accordingly. Happy mailing!
