The price for 1-ounce metered mail will increase to 60 cents, and the price to send a domestic postcard will increase to 48 cents.

A 1-ounce letter mailed to another country would increase to $1.45.

There will be no change to the single-piece letter and flat additional-ounce price, which remains at 24 cents. The Postal Service is also seeking price adjustments for Special Services products including Certified Mail, Post Office Box rental fees, money order fees and the cost to purchase insurance when mailing an item.

The proposed Mailing Services price changes include:

  • Letters (1 oz.): 63 cents
  • Letters (metered 1 oz.): 60 cents
  • Domestic Postcards: 48 cents
  • International Postcards: $1.45
  • International Letter (1 oz.): $1.45

As operating expenses continue to rise, these price adjustments provide the Postal Service with much-needed revenue to achieve the financial stability sought by its Delivering for America 10-year plan. The prices of the U.S. Postal Service remain among the most affordable in the world.
