Stamps are set to increase beginning Jan. 27, and it’s the biggest price hike for postage since 1991.
Back in October, the U.S. Postal Service board of governors requested a 5 cent increase to the forever stamp, upping the price to 55 cents. The USPC said the change would also reduce the additional ounce price of letters.
The Postal Regulatory Commission approved the price changes last month.
