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.
