    BE AWARE: postage rates increased as of 1/2/11

    I went to the PO today and paid $5.20 for a small flat rate box. Be aware of this when doing SASEs and trades!

    All the priority and express services seem to have gone up a tad.

    Count on this when you use USPS.

    BTW: Stamp prices remain unchanged.

    Q: what is the price to send a bubble envelope now?

    You can go on the USPS website and figure shipping for anything.

    Price went into effect Jan 2, 2011.

    Download and install the shipping assistant program from the USPS website. It's free. It calculates the prices for you but you need to know the weights. It checks for updates like price changes.

    If you use it to print the labels for priority mail you get delivery confirmation/tracking for free. They charge extra for that at the post office if they have to supply the bar code sticker or one of the pre-printed parcel numbers.

    According to the program a one once first class parcel (such as a padded envelope) is $1.41.

    Also PayPal is charging the recipient 30 cents plus a percent of the transaction unless it is a personal transfer. So if you send postage/shipping money for trades or giveaways do it as a personal transfer.
