Royal Mail - Size Restrictions & Service Category

Letter, Large Letter, Small Parcel, Medium Parcel (Small Packet no Longer Available) Or Other Service? Royal Mail Formats & Size & Weight Restrictions Explained.
Each format has its own size, thickness and weight criteria. The guide below will help you work out which format your item will fall into based on Royal Mail's size based pricing. It will help you to save money on postage by identifying the correct posting method for your items and obtaining suitable packaging to protect the items whilst in transit.
Standard Letter

Greetings cards, CDs in plastic sleeves (not hard cases), personal letters, postcards and bills are just a few examples of items that are likely to fall into the Letter format.

Length: 240mm max

Width: 165mm max

Thickness: 5mm max

Weight: 100g max

See Our Range Of PiP Envelope Options

Large Letter

Smaller Items such as gifts, jewellery, beads, T-shirts, A4 documents, CDs and DVDs in their cases, certificates, some large greeting cards with badges and most magazines will fall into the Large Letter format.

Length: 353mm max

Width: 250mm max

Thickness: 25mm max

Weight: 750g max

Useful Tip - You might consider folding your A4 document in half to fit into a C5 PiP envelope. This would bring it down to the Letter format, as long as it is still less than 5mm thick.
