New US Postal Rates Effective May 14, 2007

The rates are going up for US Postage retail rate letters effective May 14. 2007.

But if you are sending out cartoon batches, like I do, and paying for a couple of extra ounces -- the rates are actually going down.

A letter -- regular first class mail -- increases from 39 cents to 41 cents beginning May 14th. The per ounce rate, however, drops from 24 cents per ounce to 17 cents.

So, a 3 ounce package that costs me $0.87 today, will only cost $0.75 in May!

Rates and fees tables here. USPS decision posted on their Web site.
