« USPS Rate Increase Chart | Main | 2012 Year in Review »

January 28, 2013



While I'm not thrilled about the rate increase (who would be?!), I'm ridiculously excited about this stamp! After all, it's ROUND... how awesome is that! LOL

$1.10 for an ounce, anywhere in the world?
Think yourself lucky, it would cost me $2.98 (£1.90) to send an ounce (28g) to the USA from Britain.


Yes, $1.10 pays postage on up to two ounces to Canada from here on out. See page 44 of this file (which contains just about any rate information you could want):



Haha. My post office is getting annoyed at me for coming in and checking if they have these yet. Haha. I am SO excited for these XD


Why can't all stamps be circular?


Just received the Global stamps today ( I preordered them) and they are as beautiful as the picture! I can't say that for the 86 cent puffin stamps, which are not as nice as the picture. All set to mail my next postcard!
