First class letters do not have the same fixed costs as packages. They are handled by machinery vs the packages which require hands on. Compare apples to apples pls.

I ship hundreds of 1 cubic foot boxes per year with tomato and pepper plants. It is easy for me to estimate shipping to just about anywhere in the U.S. But I am lazy and I really prefer accurate shipping so I wrote a macro in Excel that looks up the shipping cost in the U.S.P.S. database and pops it into a cell in the spreadsheet. Please note that this is using priority mail shipping, not the flat rate boxes. Just to give you another "outlier", try shipping anything that is over 12 inches per side (total L + W + H > 36 inches) and see what it costs.
