Mailers, re-mark your calendars. The postal rate increase originally planned for April 26 will now likely happen on May 31.
The United States Postal Service has again submitted a proposal to the Postal Regulatory Committee (PRC) to raise postage rates on Standard Mail, Periodicals and Package Services.
The new proposal was submitted after two others were remanded back to the Postal Service by the PRC. If approved, the proposed rates will take effect on May 31, 2015. Along with updated pricing for Standard Mail, Periodicals and Package Services, the Postal Service will implement the previously-approved new rates for First Class Mail, Special Services and Competitive Products.

If you have questions about how the price increase will affect your organization’s mailings, please contact one of our account executives.
