You need to use the price finder to see how much it will cost. You can then use any stamp or combination of stamps that add up to that value, which would be 90p if you go for the economy option (but this could take up to 42 days to arrive). If you go for a quicker option it will cost more, so it would be easier to go to the post office as they can print a label for the value rather than you sticking loads of stamps on.

Ok,that makes sense! So i could just use a normal 1st Class Stamp to send the letter!

Thanks a lot, my dude!

You wouldn't be able to just use one first class stamp, as even the cheapest postage is more than that. But you could use a few first class stamps to make up the value - a first class stamp is 64p, and the cheapest postage to the USA is about 90p (but this depends on the weight of the letter).
