The change in postage price went into effect on May 31, 2015.
The Postal Service has done it again– a number of postage price increases went into effect on Sunday, May 31. If you use direct mail to drive customers to your dealership, then this is important for you to know. While the price changes won’t affect most consumers, as the price of standard stamps hasn’t changed, it will have an impact on all businesses that use bulk mailing.
As of now, the largest increase that might affect you is First-Class automated pre-sorted mail. If you choose to send a letter or a postcard First-Class, the postage will cost one additional cent per piece.
Prefer to use Standard postage for your mail campaign, or sending out a Saturation campaign? Your prices will also increase, though by slightly less. The postage price for each Standard letter will increase by half a penny, while the postage for each Saturation mail piece will rise by under half a cent.
