Yes, you may use two stamps to mail a long letter because you'll be paying more than the real postal amount. But if you are sent to prison, your letters will be read and those who send them will know where you are.
Stamps can be any size, but most post offices require that they be 3/4" by 5". Stamps used to mail packages must be larger; usually 1" by 4" is recommended. The post office staff should be able to help you find large stamps to use for mailing letters.
There are many types of large stamps. Some are sold in sets while others are not. Whether or not two stamps are part of a set does not matter as long as they are both large enough to fit on one side of a letter. Set stamps look nice on letters and packages too!
Yes. As long as the stamps have a value equal to or more than the actual postage for a letter, two of those stamps would be more than enough to mail a letter.
Stamps can be used up to their per-piece value. For example, if a stamp costs $1.50 in total and you want to mail a letter that weighs less than 1 pound, you would need only one stamp to send the letter. But if the letter weighed more than 1 pound, you would need two stamps to cover the additional weight of the letter.
The type of paper you use to write the letter does not matter as long as it is flat and will fit in the mailbox. Paper stamps are easy to use with just a few clicks of your mouse. Electronic stamps work much like electronic money cards, except they are stored in a digital format instead of being printed on paper currency.
Stamps can be bought in stores that sell mailing supplies or online. The best place to buy stamps is at a postal office because you can see how many letters you can send before you need to refill your container full of stamps. However, you can also purchase stamps online. Some companies will ship your stamps to you, while others will deliver them directly to your door.

To assure USPS delivery, every domestic mail piece weighing more than one ounce must contain extra postage in addition to your Forever Stamp. When you add two Forever Stamps on a 2-ounce letter, you are paying for something that should cost $0.75. This means that two stamps worth of revenue is being generated from letters that shouldn't be sent at all!
The rule applies only to domestic mail. If you're sending mail to other countries there are no weight limits. However, most countries' postal systems don't accept foreign stamps so you will need to use postage meters or purchase domestic postage tickets from the Post Office.
There are two ways you can determine if you need two stamps: manually and automatically. The manual method requires you to weigh each letter you send and pay according to its weight. This is how postmasters used to process stamps before the introduction of automatic machines. Today's post offices have scale facilities for this purpose but they are usually behind the counter and not available to the public.
The automated method uses a computer system to weigh letters, print out postage labels and apply the correct amount of postage to them. Most large organizations with a constant stream of correspondence use these services because it reduces labor costs. These companies typically pay a fixed monthly fee which covers all of their mailing needs.
