    I think they'll understand.
    Of course they will.... sounds perfect!. Please correct the spelling. It's "franquicia"

    Yes, Sandra. In Argentina, for instance, we don't use the word "sellos" for "stamps" (may lead to confusion). However, the phrase "con el sello de correos" that you suggested is perfectly understood and sounds perfect as well.

    Kind regards,

    BTW, In Argentina "stamps" are "estampillas"

    Thank you for the correction!
    With all the great help I've had translating my letter, the recipient probably thinks I'm fluent in Spanish (and replies with something I won't be able to decipher)...

    El franqueo(ver DRAE, franquicia es una clase de exención) postal pre-pago (o pagado), es esa impresión que llevan los sobres y que indica que no es necesario colocar un sello de correo (o estampilla) puesto que el costo de porte de debitará de la cuenta a la que refiere esa leyenda. Si lo que se desea es ofrecer el envío de un sobre (pre-) estampillado con la dirección del destinatario (no remitente) ya escrita, se puede decir así para la Argentina y otros países, y en un sentido más general poner "puedo enviarle un sobre con los sellos (postales) ya adheridos y con la dirección del destinatario (o "nuestra dirección") ya impresa/escrita"

    Thanks so much for your kind words Sandrita. To came up with the phrase is always the product of a team work . I don't know what would I do without you all

    Hugs and Kisses


    Truly, my dear young friends, you are a chosen generation. I hope you will never forget it.
