Postage rates are increasing. But it’s not all bad news!

US Postal Service proceeds with request for Postal Price Change. On August 29, 2021, postage rates are increasing. But it's not all bad news.


Postcards are growing up!

Amid the talk of the postage rates increasing, there is some good news that comes with this. Postcard sizes are going up! The USPS is increasing the preferred rate postcard size from 4.25” tall x 6”wide to 6” tall x 9” wide. What exactly does this mean?


More Bang For Your Buck!

That’s a LOT more real estate. Now you can mail bigger postcards with a faster service of Presort First Class or First Class mail for the same postage rate as the 4.25x6 card! When mailing postcards that contain bills or appointment reminders, you now will have room for promotional content as well as larger photos to showcase your products and services. This makes for a more aesthetically pleasing reading experience! Thank you, USPS!
