Postage rates from U.S. to Canada Login/Join

Not exactly a travel question, but:

Can anyone tell me what U.S. stamp I need for a standard #10 envelope SASE that will allow an American company to send me a reply *in Canada*?

I'm hoping I can buy a pane of 20 US stamps from the US Postal Service's website. The two Canadian post offices where I live in rural Canada don't carry International Reply Coupons, so I figured this might be the solution. Unfortunately I'm having trouble understanding the rates.

Thanks in advance!

You can calculate international rates for US postage at the USPS Website

International first class to Canada is $0.69 USD for the first ounce and $0.31 USD for each additional ounce.

Hi, thanks.

Yeah, I tried that calculator and was confused by the results. How can I know what the weight will be when I'm sending them an empty envelope that they will then be adding content to? And what is first-class?

Anyhow, I guess I'll buy the 69ers and hope for the best.

Thanks again for your response.

First class mail is regular personal correspondence, rather than bulk mail, advertising, etc....

A #10 envelope with 5 sheets of 8.5"x11" weigh about 1 ounce, which will require a 69¢ stamp.

Thanks so much. I'm sorry I don't have a Premium account, so I couldn't reply to your PM. I actually went ahead and bought a pane of stamps from the USPS website a few hours ago--$6 in shipping! (And I was just down in TX the other week Complain)
