The cost to mail a letter will rise once again. On May 12th, first class postage will rise a penny to 42 cents and a postcard will be 27 cents (up from 26 cents). You can still buy the Forever stamps at the current price of 41 cents which can be used no matter what the price may rise to.

One thing that I have noticed is that the number of mailings I get from other Realtors to my home have decreased over the past years. Part of that is the declining market as most Realtors don’t have that much of a marketing budget these days. Plus, mailings to homes aren’t as effective in getting listings as they once were.

Above are my Keith Byrd 37 cent stamps I purchased many years ago. When Photo Stamps first came out (and I was still doing neighborhood mailings) I ordered a bunch on the first day they became available. This was before they stopped allowing names on stamps. I guess they are sort of a collectors item these days….
