41c - Stamp rates change in less than a month!


Recommended Posts

I am not sure if everyone is up on the new stamp rate, but a first-class stamp is going from 39 cents to 41 cents. Definitely won't break the bank, but something to be aware of. The rate goes into effect May 14. They ARE reducing the Wedding Invitation rate, though, so make sure you follow-up with your local postal service. They have sample rates here:

Thanks. Have you guys heard of the new forever stamp they are putting out? I'm not sure exactly how it works but I think they are stamps you can buy and add to your old stamps to equal the new postage forever, no matter how much it increases in the future. I still have to look into it.

Their's a brief blurb about the forever stamp in the the press release, though I think it's only for 1 oz mail:

 

Forever Stamp

 

The Governors approved the Forever Stamp, which will sell at the new 41-cent First-Class Mail one-ounce letter rate. The value on these stamps will always be the one-ounce letter rate and can be used for any future one-ounce letter mailing without extra postage.

 

"The Forever Stamp is a consumer innovation that delivers convenience and value and will help ease the transition for mailing letters when prices change," said Chairman Miller.

Does anyone know of a good website where you can get wedding stamps? I want something pretty, and I found some on the knot, but I think they came out to be like .79 cents per stamp- and that's not worth it. I don't mind spending a little more per stamp, but not double.

Thanks-
