Well, it’s May again and once again the post office will be raising their prices for mailing first class. The full list of the new prices is now posted on the official United States Postal Service website at:

Some of the more common price changes are:

$0.44 Letters – first ounce
$0.88 Large envelopes – first ounce
$1.22 Parcels – first ounce
$0.17 per additional ounce

$0.28 Postcard

So if you know you will need to mail some things off in May, go ahead and get them out by May 11 to avoid insufficient postage delays.
