2016 Postage Rate Decrease

Untitled For the first time in almost 100 years, the USPS is lowering postage rates.  The average decrease among all classes is about 4%.  The decrease begins Sunday, April 10th.

What this means in real terms is that Standard Class automated mail will go down about a penny per piece and automated First Class mail will go down about a penny and a half.  The second ounce on automated First Class mail remains free.
