A reminder that the price of stamps goes up on Sunday.
First class stamps will go from forty-five cents, to forty-six cents.
Stamps are not the only thing increasing by one penny either. Postcards will be going up by one cent as well.
The post office is also rolling out a new "forever" stamp. This version is called "forever international." These stamps will cost you $1.10 to send around the globe.
All stamps bought since last year are now considered "forever" stamps for domestic mail. This increase will only make a small dent into the postal service’s financial woes as less mail is sent through the postal service.
They are still waiting on Congress to take action on several proposals intended to stem the financial losses, including ending service on Saturday. In the shorter term the postal service is closing or reducing hours at several rural post offices including some here in Cortland and surrounding counties.
