The United States Postal Service posts the rates and conditions on line.
From experience I will correct the information in some of the previous posts:
There is a limit to the weight one can internationally ship in the Priority Mail Large Flat Rate box - it is 20 pounds.
The volume of the box is one half a cubic foot: 12 inches X 12 inches X 6 inches deep. These are the outside dimensions of the box provided free by the USPS.
Therefore the inside dimensions are reduced by about one quarter inch in each measurement.
If you can fit your items into this carton and the total weight exceeds about 6 pounds, you are matching the cost of sending the same parcel via parcel post. If your total weight exceeds 6 pounds but is less than 20 pounds - you are getting a good deal since anything in excess of 6 pounds is traveling free.
