New 2018 U.S. Postal Service Prices Announced


This month the U.S. Postal Service filed notice to the Postal Regulatory Commission (PRC) with price changes to become effective January 21, 2018.

If your company is currently immersed in or approaching the budget season, now is the time to plan for these new increases for your 2018 mailings. Your team is going to be so impressed with how on the ball you are.


New Mailing Service Prices

A one cent increase would raise First-Class Mail Forever stamps, postcard stamps, and metered letter if approved. Mailing service product prices would also go up roughly 1.9% based on the Consumer Price Index (CPI).


New Shipping Service Prices

Most shipping service products will increase about 3.9% on average. These prices are adjusted strategically according to market conditions. This, in turn, will increase Priority Mail 3.9% and Priority Mail Retail 0.8%.


Plan for the Price Change

Changes are proposed to take effect January 21, 2018, following the PRC’s price review. Although these price changes are not set in stone yet, it’s a good idea to go ahead and plan your 2018 mailing budget as if it is happening. (Because it probably will.)
