I received a sheet from my PO that had all of the new increases. Regarding 1st class letters, there is the additional 21 cents for each ounce over one, but then at 3.5 ounces, there is an additional 21 cents required. Is this something new? Have they always started charging additional postage at 3.5 oz?

Awesome graphic! I love the little envelope with wings line drawing, too. :)

Donovan Beeson

Theyve always rounded-up; so yes, 3.5 is essentially 4 oz in the eyes of the U.S.P.S.

Kristy

But this is much cuter.

Donovan Beeson

Yes, 3.5 rounds up to 4. Its 21 cents for each additional ounce or that is how I have always understood it.

Connie Rose

Thanks for the graphic!

Thank you! Love this! Will be printing it out and putting it on my writing desk!!!

Love the graphic! I was going to put it at the postal meter at work but we learned today that business owners with meter machines get a 1¢ discount. First time ever that has happened. I have been pushing to get rid of the machine and use real stamps but I'm going to have to give up on that battle now.

Donovan Beeson

Thats why theres the letter with the 0.48 for digital postage!

Pamela

Very fun!

Cindy R.

Love the graphic!

PostMuse

Ah! I didn't notice the digital one! I will color it in and replace the ugly scrawled note another co-worker stuck on the meter.

Rebecca

It's beautiful! Thanks so much for sharing!

Jeanne

Thanks a bunch! I appreciate the loveliness of the drawing, which makes the postage hike a bit easier to deal with!
