How much does a dz prefolds weigh?

I'm trying to figure out the best way for my mother to ship a dz med (like GMD red) prefolds to me. I have searched several websites and can't figure out how much they weigh. Can anyone help me with this? TIA!

Re: How much does a dz prefolds weigh?

I shipped a dozen infant prefolds (green edge) from Colorado to Canada (Calgary I believe) and it was about $11 or $12 to do so. They were "light" enough that they still shipped first class to Canada (I think first class to Canada goes up to 3lbs....) Now if they go over what ever that first class rate is, then they have to go Priority and that is pricey! HTH

ETA: I sent them in a poly mailer to keep them light, as well.

I just shipped a dozen GMD oranges plus 2 green edge to VA from GA and it was like $7 or $8 (parcel post 2-9 days). I think the weight was 2.5 lbs....

Re: How much does a dz prefolds weigh?

I just shipped 1 dozen GMDs in a box. It weighed 3lb 3.2oz. I would definitely get a poly mailer if you can, I couldn't find a place that sells them individually around here. I chose priority shipping and it was about $7 (only like $1 more than parcel post!), but it was a zone 1 mailing address. If I had shipped to the other coast, it probably would've around $10-12 I'm guessing.
