Happy New Year from the USPS and Perfect Postage! I’m excited about the new Forever Love design from the USPS. The new forever stamp features soft white skywriting showing the word Love and cloudlike trails swooping from the white airpane. I love this design as it is perfect for so many of the travel themed weddings we have seen lately.
Also are new postcard stamps featuring four seashells. While I’m not thrilled about the colors, these could be nice for RSVP cards for beach themed weddings and showers.
According to the USPS, the cost of first class forever stamps are due to increase on January 22, 2017 – the first increase in forever stamps in 3 years. Below is a chart showing the current and new prices for the various envelopes and weights. As always, the custom stamps at Perfect Postage will all be available at the new rates before January 22.
