Any easy way to add pictures on there so it wouldn't look too weird when sending things out?

Sorry what? My point is that 61c is your cost of 85c which is the value of a p stamp or to mail letter mail upto 30g. You could do a 50c + 36c from my packages to get 86c.

My packages are 29% off the face value and no taxes.
No it's not. Your package consists of varying number of different denominations. In your example, after first 40 mailings using 50c+36c stamps, buyer is left with odd denominations that has no ability to be used without topping off with 1c stamps bought at full price from Canada Post.

There is no way your item represents 29% savings because buying 1c stamps at face value will eat away at this savings, and by significant amount.

And here I am sitting on 1000$ of unused postage from an inheritance.

Maybe the post office will buy it back for 60% value!

64 x $0.36 & 40 x $0.50 & 30 x $0.43

What?! You do realize that 2x $0.43 is ALSO equals to 86c. You're still not factoring 15% taxes you don't need to pay as well. At worse your remaining 24 of $0.36 = 12 x 13c. =$1.56. You would need to spend. The amount saved on taxes offsets your $1.56. So technically you're saving more than the 29% advertised.

You're also assuming that every single item you're sending is under 30g. 30g-50g cost $1.20 to ship

WHAT? You are assuming tax is 15% Who says 15%? Doesn't tax start from 5%?

Also you are assuming people regularly mail items over 30g. I have never mailed anything other than regular envelope, or parcels. Put a big disclaimer then your deal is only for those who mail over 30g regularly.

In any combination of examples, there is no way your item offers savings of what you claim to be. It will always be less. Buyers lose because denomination will always eat away no matter 30g, 50g, 100g.

How much is the roll of P stamps at Costco, and how many do you get?

Is this cheaper?
Yes obviously this is a better deal than Costco.

are these available in-store?
I doubt it, these are from 2012. Unless you wanna spend countless hours phoning different post offices until you find some.

If I need to ship out phone cases or car chargers, will I be able to use these ?

What is the % off compared to regular price?
Each stamp is valued at the current "P" (Permanent) value of 85 cents. So if your sending a $1.80 package, you'll need 2 + 10c more.
