New 2020 USPS Prices Announced

Attention budget-savvy professionals: The U.S. Postal Service (USPS) has filed notice to the Postal Regulatory Commission (PRC) with new USPS prices that will become effective January 26, 2020.

Forever Stamp Prices

But what about those Forever stamps? After last year’s 10% hike from 50¢ to 55¢, the forever stamp prices will not be changing for 2020.

If the Forever stamp pricing were to change in 2021 or any year after that, you’d still be able to use previously purchased Forever stamps – they can be used to mail a 1 oz. letter regardless of when the stamp was purchased. Good to know, right?

How Quantity Affects Price

All commercial postage categories have minimum quantities of mail that must be met. Beyond that, your level of sort and the number of pieces in each sortation may qualify your mail for a price reduction. (Speak with your Delzer Rep to discuss how we can simplify your next mailing.)

Changes are proposed to take effect January 26, 2020, following the PRC’s price review. Although these price changes are not set in stone yet, it’s a good idea to plan your 2020 mailing budget with these prices in mind as if it is happening – because it probably will.
