U.S. Postal Rate Increases Effective January 26, 2014

 New postage rates based on shape, thickness and weight

Beginning January 26, 2014, the rate to mail a one ounce, first-class letter will increase to 49¢. Increases will be effective for each additional ounce for letters and flats over one ounce and increases across the board for parcels. The United States Postal Service changed to a shape-based pricing schedule in May, 2007. This means they have been placing a greater emphasis on the size and not the weight of the item being mailed when determining the cost. Therefore, all material being mailed should be folded and placed into the smallest size envelope/package possible. 

Information and tips about the rate increase.
