Instead of a company? Postage does not depend on who sends it. Books used
to be able to be shipped rather cheaply. If that is still true, it would be
true for any shipper. If the shipper claims his rates are higher because he’s
a company, you should take your business elsewhere.
---- Henk's reply
As a person you would ship this as a letter and be done with it.
However, (AFAIK), a company ships using standard priority rates,
and my impression is that that is a lot more. In the eBay listing it
shows that the shipping cost for these (guessing) 20 pages is
some $25. A person shipping 20 pages in a letter pays less ... or
are USPS rates rocketed sky high over the last year?
