USPS Announces Proposed New Postage Rates – January 2011

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.
