We’ve received many calls this past month regarding the proposed rate changes.  Nothing is set in stone yet, but the new proposed rates will definately make your pocket book a little lighter.  Here’s the proposed changes awaiting approval by the Postal Commission: 

  • First-Class rate will go to $0.41.
  • Postcard rate will go to $0.26.
  • Standard Mail (bulk) will have an average 9.3% increase.
  • Catalogers, you will feel the greatest impact with a proposed 19%-30% increase.

We want to hear from you how the proposed postage rates will affect your business.  Will you need to decrease the amount of mail you send.  What about larger mailings and catalogs?
