A: First, a little history. Hawaii became a state in 1959. We are not merely a territory or a possession (those involved in the sovreignty movement may disagree, but that has no bearing on postage issues). Therefore, the postage to Hawaii follows normal U.S. Postal Service regulations — right now, it’s 37 cents for a 1-ounce letter. Q: Do I need to use international postage? A: No, not if you live within the United States. Regular postage is fine. Don’t spend 50 cents more
