Never mind! Found it!
It's 20 cents extra per card.

Yikes! I was kind of wondering the same thing... been thinking about square Christmas cards for our fam. Thanks for sharing the info!
Now to decide if it's worth the extra cost...

I want to do square cards too but don't want to pay the extra postage. Anyone put sqaure cards in a rectangular envelope? Wondering if that would work.

A regular #10 envelope is 4 and and 1/8 by 9 12/. As long as you keep the card under 4 &1/8 it can go in a regular envelop. Otherwise, it will incur charges for the odd or larger size.

And if you are ordering cards from WHCC, the 5x5 photographic cards are cheaper than the 5x7s, so you end up paying only about 10 cents more per card with postage and everything if you look at it that way.

Also, if you order from WHCC you have the option of the square envelopes or 5X7 envelopes which do not cost extra postage. The first year I got 5X5 cards, from WHCC, they didn't even offer square envelopes.

I did 5x5 last year and the cheaper price of the cards did offset some of the extra postage costs. It did turn out to be just about 10 cents more a card. Worth it to me to send it in a nicely fitting envelope instead of swimming in the 5x7 envelope. I really liked the look of the square cards!
