When sending a letter in America, I usually use about 3 American stamps. I don't know if it would be more since it is coming from outside. You should just be able to have the post office gauge that for you. Also, include some IRCs for the return postage. You can send a photo, but some actors will provide their own. It depends on whether you want a specific photo of a character they have played. Who are you planning to send to?

Hi, The Royal Mail prices are here:

http://www.royalmail.com/portal/rm/jump ... d=11200122

Or you can take your items to any Post Office and have them weighed and stamped (as opposed to you putting on 3 1st class etc).

It's up to you if you send a photo.

And don't forget you need return postage, so American stamps, IRC's or $ cash.

The question really needs more information as postage is based on size and weight.

Whenever I send a C5 envelope containing a 10x8 card backed envelope, a 10x8 photo and a LOR, the postage to the USA is usually just over £3.

International postage from the UK is determined by weight only. Unless you are talking about the price bands you can send items, ie Letters or Printed Papers/ Small Packets.

It is domestic mail that is done by both size & weight.
