    Hi I am from South Africa and was wondering if you could deliver to South africa and if you have to have the US postal format on the side, was wanting to just have an image on a postage stamp

    Thank you

    why does postage rates keep going up. yet mail service is worst then it has ever been.
    the forever stamp is the worst idea ever issued. in future collectors will not know what stamp was worth or the true year of stamp.

  3. HI George,

    The forever stamp does have the year on them … so collectors can always go back and see what postage was in that year.

    If I have a bulk mailing of 300 postcards is the price still the same, .32 per card?



  5. Hi Diane

    The custom postage will cost more than the 32 cent postcard stamps at the post office. Each sheet (20 stamps per sheet) would cost $19.45.

    Hello, what would it cost to mail a letter (1oz) from Oregon to Africa?

    It would be nice if the USPS had a quick link to 1-oz Christmas Card rates, including International destinations.

    It would also be nice if the international destination rates for Christmas cards just required two domestic stamps. (Or some fixed number.) Make things convenient and maybe more people would use USPS.

    Also please round stamp prices to the nearest 5 cents, instead of avoiding round numbers.

    • Hi Paul,

      You may want to send your comments to the USPS – I think they would be interested to hear your thoughts. I am a designer of custom postage – not an employee of USPS. Thanks!
