Mailing Services Prices to Change April 17, 2011

Monday, January 17th, 2011

The USPS notified the Postal Regulatory Commission (PRC) that they will change prices for their Mailing Services products, which include First-Class Mail®, Standard Mail®, Periodicals, Package Services and Extra Services.

The new prices can be viewed online on Postal Explorer® at Click on the link in the left blue navigation frame under “*New* April 17, 2011 Pricing Information.”
