Default How many stamps for Christmas cards back to England from the USA?

Yes, I could go to the post office and find out exactly - but I am posting it from my mailbox tomorrow morning and just wondering....

Average thin Christmas card - how many "first class" stamps do you normally add to send a card to England from the USA?

Two? Three?

I am thinking two...or is that me being too frugal?

90c for international mail for standard cards, square ones are extra, and heavy ones too.

Normal first class stamps are what, 41c?

If I can't get to the post office to buy 90c stamps I'll stick 3 first class stamps on a letter/ card to England and that seems to work.

If you stick 2 then you'll be what... 8c short, not sure if they would deliver it.

Most of the large food stores sell books of 41c stamps.

3 x 41c is usually what i do, when I cant get to USPS.
