Answer: 5 sheets

I previously thought it to be 20 sheets, yet I was misguided thinking you deserve to mail 3.5 ounces through one stamp. If girlfriend mailed something that was 3.5 ounces, it would expense you one dollar. A solitary $0.55 rubber stamp will only mail something the weighs ONE ounce.

You are watching: How much does a piece of paper weigh in ounces

One item of mail, First-Class as of January 26, 2020:

Under one ounce: $0.55Under two ounces: $0.70Under 3 ounces: $0.85Under 3.5 ounces: $1.00

Here’s exactly how I figured it out you deserve to mail 5 sheets with one $0.55 stamp:

500 sheets of file = 5.3 pounds5.3 pounds = 84.8 ounces84.8 ounces / 500 sheets of = 0.1696Each paper of record weighs 0.1696 ounces1 ounces / 0.1696 ounces = 5.89623 sheets

Thus, you have the right to get five sheets under the one-ounce border of First-Class mail v one stamp.

You deserve to ignore the image below, since they show me make the efforts to ingredient 20 sheets right into one envelope.

You have the right to only mail 5 sheets with one stamp.
