Pay Me Now Or Pay Me Later

When purchasing postage for my client’s Reply Card Envelopes, a well meaning government agent suggested the forty-two cent LOVE stamps. I expressed to him that with the postage rate increase taking effect May 11th and the client’s reply date set for May 13th, using a Forever Stamp would be the prudent choice. It’s doubtful that every guest reply would be postmarked before the forthcoming rate change or that all lagers would think to make up the difference. Spare yourself the nuisance of having to make good on dozens of “additional postage due” demands by being smart on the front end.

On May 11, 2009 the price for a 1-ounce First-Class Mail stamp will increase from 42¢ to 44¢. Forever Stamps — regardless of when purchased — can always be used to mail 1-ounce letters.
