Postage Increase

As of August 29,2021 the postage rates have increased.

Just got my first batch of 5,000 postcards ordered at Rocket Print. Their postage for postcards are now $0.33 a piece for first class instead of Standard mailing now. So it’s pricier but will get to the recipients faster.

$650 for the batch of 5,000 postcards.

@jchou I believe this was the biggest postage increase in known history. It’s also very rare for postage prices to get hiked up mid-year like this (typically it happens at the end of the year).

I suppose that’s just the free market at work, though. When demand for sending snail mail goes down and inflation is going up, it’s just a matter of time until USPS has to catch up like the rest of us.
