I thought it my domestic duty to inform you that you’ll be needing to update your stamp stash in your desk drawer soon. Yes, the good old Postal Service has decided that it’s again time for a raise in rates. Starting May 11th the new rates will be in effect…
1 oz. or less $0.44
2 oz. or less (most wedding invitations) $0.61
Here are some of the new stamps they’re releasing…
And brides, I’m sorry to say you’ll be stuck with these unless you go for personalized stamps; they’re getting rid of the heart stamps.
