    Another postage increase!
    USPS - New Prices Coming May 12, 2008

    Rates are not going up by much, but (if you can) get your invites, std's, and other mailings out a little early!

      A penny! All of that for a penny! I wonder what the new stamps will look like?

      Ahh, now I know I REALLY need to step up my invite-making process! My timeline says 2 months prior to my wedding date-send out invites! This date would be May 11!
      Thanks for the heads up.

          You can buy the FOREVER stamps now at the current price and can use them for as long as you want to until you run out regardless of what future prices will be. At that time, you can purchase additional ones at the new price. Basically you're banking on that inflation will be slower than post office raising the stamp price.
