According to the U.S. Postal Service, the cost of a first-class stamp is going up to 42 cents starting May 12th.

Important Information To Note – The price of the Forever stamp will go up at the same time, meaning those stamps can still be purchased for 41 cents but will remain good for first-class postage after the rate increase takes effect.  Apparently, the post office has sold 5 billion Forever stamps since they were introduced last April and plans to have an additional 5 billion in stock to meet the expected demand before the May price change.

In addition to the First-Class Mail Letter (1 oz.) going up to $.42, the Postcard is going up to $.27 and the First-Class Mail Letter (2 oz.) is going up to $.59

Take care!
