Shipping Question

Hello, Not really a question regarding my x carve but the items I am making. So I want to start to sell some of my items that I create. As of now though I made some gifts I would like to send some family. They do not live close to me. So I would like to ship. What is the best/cheapest mailing service to use for items like this? I have items as 20"x12"x.75" , 20"x37"x1.5" and 2.5"x34"x2.5" Thanks for any help. I live is Southern California if location matters : )

The post office is usually the cheapest. But, I always check the price with UPS and others based on size and weight and the where you are sending it, they will give you the price over the phone.

USPS has 2 modes, flat rate and non-flat rate. In the flat rate model you buy a box of a certain size for a fixed price. Anything you can fit in the box goes. (I’m sure there is a sanity limit - don’t ship your neutronium blocks) but anything you made on your x-carve is going to be in the reasonable range. However if your thing is super light, then the regular shipping may be cheaper.
