As your print and mail authority, we are pleased to be able to report to you that for the first time in years, there will be no postage increase in January for mail and shipping products. So that means that First-Class and Standard Mail letters and flats and First-Class Package Service and Priority Mail® will not go up in price.
However, before you get too excited, let us caution you that there may be an increase later in the year.
Why the uncertainty? We’re all waiting for the Court of Appeals to rule on the exigent price increase that went into effect in January 2014 after the Postal Regulatory Commission authorized it. The big question is will it remain temporary or permanent? If the ruling deems it permanent, we’ll probably see an increase later in the year. As always, we’ll keep you posted.
