Heads up! Postage Increase Coming … Yes, Again.

Funny enough, I received an email from the US Postal Service the other day warning … OK, informing me, that yet another postage increase is on the way. Come April 17, prices for first class and standard mail, periodicals, package and extra services are all going up. That pretty much covers everything mailed, from B2B newsletters to that humorous card you picked up for your nephew’s 12th birthday.

What does it mean to us? Well, for the first time in two years, prices for each “Mailing Services” class of mail will go up by an average of 1.741%. You can check out the new prices at http://pe.usps.com/. Keep this in mind from a budgeting standpoint for your client mailing recommendations moving forward.

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news. If you’d like to receive “advisories” like these directly to your inbox from the Domestic Mail Manual (DMM) division of the USPS, simply send an e-mail to dmmadvisory@usps.com and type “subscribe” as the subject line.
