New postage rate for post cards

Did you know that it now costs $.35 to send a postcard instead of $.34?
It's true.  The increase went into effect a few days ago.

Here are the cool new postcard stamps:

If, like me, you still have a whole bunch hummingbird stamps...
 You're going to need to go out and buy some Tiffany Lamp stamps to go with them.
Or  bobcat stamps if you prefer...

If you're way behind on your mailing and still have some of those apple stamps hanging around, you'll need to add a Navajo necklace:

and if you have a vast collection of unused postage and want to get rid of the Aloha stamps, you'll need to add a coffeepot....

Since I can't remember what the postcard stamps looked like prior to the Aloha stamps, this math lesson is over.

Go get yourself some combination of $.35 and you'll be good to go.


  1. Although I like the hummingbird stamp, it is nice to have 4 different ones for the new rate.

    I think the 29c herb stamps came before the shirts, and the 28c polar bear (one of my favorite stamps ever) preceded them.

  2. And international 1oz letters and postcards have gone up from $1.15 to $1.20

  3. Well, crappiola. Guess I need to go get some lamps or lynxes. Lynxi?

  4. What a delightful post!

  5. Loved the 27c Tropical Fruit PC stamps from 2008. Yummilicious! :D
