First Class Stamp Rises to $0.45 Cents

Customers with "Forever" stamps do not have to add more money to their stamps.

The price of mailing a letter will go up by a penny under an increase that goes into effect today, to $0.45. Postcards are rising three cents, to 32 cents. Letters going overseas are going up seven cents more, to $1.05.

The postal service previously announced in October that it is making the changes to survive rising costs and declining mail volume.

The Postal Service has also added a new domestic service, called Express Mail Flat Rate Box. It costs $39.95. The weight limit is 70 lbs.

Priority Mail flat rate prices have also been adjusted. They are:

  • Small box — $5.35
  • Medium box — $11.35
  • Large box — $15.45
  • Large APO/FPO/DPO box — $13.45
  • Regular envelope — $5.15
  • Legal-size and Padded envelope — $5.30
