US Stamp Prices to Increase Sunday

On Sunday, Jan. 26, 2014, the price to mail first class letters and postcards in the United States will increase slightly.

The cost of a first class letter (up to one ounce) will be 49 cents. The cost to mail a postcard will be 34 cents. Additionally, the cost of additional ounces for domestic first class letters will increase by 1-cent to 21 cents.

The cost of letters (up to 1 ounce) and postcards to all international addresses will increase to $1.15.

If you have "Forever" stamps, they will be good for the cost of first class postage (up to 1 ounce), no matter how much you paid for them. If you have any questions about how much postage a particular letter will need, take it to your local post office and ask them to double-check it for you.

Happy letterwriting!

No US Mail today

This is just a reminder that today is Martin Luther King Jr. Day in the U.S., and it's a federal holiday and is observed by the US Postal Service. There will be no mail delivery, but Express Mail may be delivered. Official US Post Offices will be closed; however, you can still buy stamps at other places that sell postage.

Great video by Snail Mail My Email

The video is by the project Snail Mail My Email, which gets volunteers to handwrite other people's emails and mail them to the intended recipient.

But, the video is about much more than that illustrates how important "real" letters are to people!

Take a few minutes and watch...
