It's True- Stamp Prices Going Up!

Rumors have been swirling for a while that Stamp prices were going up soon. Well, it's official- according to the Post Office Website prices will increase on May 12th. That's the bad news. The good news is a first class stamp is only increasing by 1 cent! That's not too bad. Below is the announcement.

New Prices Coming May 12, 2008

On May 12 we will adjust prices for mailing services — First-Class Mail, Standard Mail, Periodicals, Package Services, and Special Services. The average increase by class of mail is at or below the rate of inflation as measured by the Consumer Price Index.

A First-Class Mail stamp will be 42¢. We also will have a 62¢ stamp available shortly after May 12 for 1-ounce nonmachinable First-Class Mail letters, such as square greeting cards. (Miss Capitol Hill says: square envelopes could be wedding invitations too !!!)

Select prices:
First-Class Mail letter (1 oz.)
First-Class Mail letter (2 oz.)
First-Class Mail large envelope (2 oz.)
Certified Mail
First-Class Mail International to Canada and Mexico (1 oz.)
First-Class Mail International to all other countries (1 oz.)

Personally, I don't mind stamp increases all that much. Having lived in different countries with incredibly horrible postal systems I very much appreciate how good and pretty cheap our system is. I mean where else can you send a letter the distance from Florida to Alaska (and if the person isn't there anymore they'll send it back to you!) all for 41 cents? Or ummm 42 cents.

Either way--if you are a summer or early fall bride then make sure to save yourself a dollar or two and get your invites out before May 12.
