    Assuming you're in the US, you have the right idea, but starting tomorrow Jan. 24, 2021 the charge for each additional ounce is going back up to 20 cents.  So your $1 stamp will mail a 3 ounce letter. 

    Additionally, a letter stops being classified as a letter at 3.5 ounces.   Once you exceed 3.5 ounces, the letter becomes categorized as a "large envelope" or a "parcel", depending on thickness, dimensions, and weight.  That triggers a different rate structure.  For instance, a 1 ounce large envelope is $1.
