but here are shipping rates for 1st class package for US through paypal with tracking:
1 oz - 3 oz: $1.75
4 oz: $1.92
5 oz: $2.09
6 oz: $2.26
7 oz: $2.43
8 oz: $2.60
9 oz: $2.77
10 oz: $2.94
11 oz: $3.11
12 oz: $3.28
13 oz: $3.45

I would weigh your bow packages in a box, say a priority size box and figure the weight, it if is 13 oz or less, better off shipping 1st class. Only ship priority if customer requests and charge actual priority rate.

I just shipped a package in a 6x6x2 box that had two large boutique bows and a 3 clip set, weighed less than 5 oz.

Hope this helps!
Thanks so much for the trouble you've taken to help me! I believe I am going to be looking into boxes on uline and a scale. It sounds like I would do WAY better doing everything from home. I have a couple of more questions....sorry....but do you buy stickers to print your postage on from home or do you just tape regular paper to the box....and also I want to buy some boxes. You spoke of the 6x6x2 size, do you think that would fit my 10 for 10's?
