    Seems to be no problem then.

    Exactly. A lot of the time I've seen us use overnight envelopes that say 'UPS Express" on them.

    Ok, i dont think you guys understand.

    If i ship a package UPS Ground from FL -> FL, it arrives the next day, guaranteed.

    Problem is, you can only use the UPS Express envelope if you pay for second day air or faster. I'm paying for ground.

    I want to know if I can ship a package UPS Ground in a bubble mailer

    If they have a size requirement, toss it in a box or something. What's so difficult?

    Yes you can. I do it every day. My bubble mailers are 6"x10" though.

    Edit: your 6x9 bubble mailer will do just fine. Worldship for the win.

    You can use any size package for UPS ground, there is no limit. Just make sure you can fit the label on it.
