USPS Announces Proposed New Postage Rates

The U.S. Postal Service has proposed a small postage increase that, once approved, will take effect on April 17, 2011. While there will be no increase in the price of First Class letter stamps, staying at 44¢, there will be a 1¢ increase for First Class postcard stamps to 29¢. There will be small increases in the postage for automation-compatible presorted mailings.

•    First Class presorted postage will increase by just under 1¢, or .8¢
•    Standard Mail rates will increase by an even smaller amount of .4¢
•    Non Profit Standard Mail rates will remain unchanged

This proposal will be going through several stages of approval, but we expect they will be finalized as is and go into effect on April 17th as planned.

I have been using Modern Postcard for over 6 years and have never been disappointed. The quality is always top notch and the service has been overly helpful. I have purchased lists from a number of different printers over the years and Modern Postcard has been the most accurate and up to date. The mailing lists were easy to customize and have given us a great return. Working in non-profit it is essential to have the best coverage with every mailing, Modern Postcard has helped us achieve this. You are in good hands and won’t be disappointed.
