Proposed USPS Price Changes for Sending International Postcards & Letters

Proposed USPS Price Changes for Sending International Postcards & Letters

As always, International Mail Service works to help send international postcards and letters at discounted rates. This has always been the case for IMS, and it continues to drive our business. We want to share this in lieu of the recent announcement of a proposed increase in pricing by the USPS. At the beginning of April, the U. S. Postal Service filed notice with the Postal Regulatory Commission. This notice detailed a mailing services price change that they plan to take into effect on July 14, 2024. The proposed adjustments, approved by the governors of the Postal Service, would raise mailing services product prices approximately 7.8 percent.
