Postage Increases- 2009

* Bookmark and Share

The price of postage is going up... again. This means that your acting related mailings are getting more expensive. Here is short breakdown of the postage we use that will be increasing, starting May 11:

First Class Letters/Cards- $0.44 (was $0.42)
Postcards- $0.28 (was $0.27)
Large Envelopes with Headshot/Resume/ Cover Letter (2 oz or less)- $1.05 (was $1.00)

If your large envelope happens to weigh 1 oz or less, you can pay the 1 oz fee of only $0.88. But most headshot submissions are over 1 oz, so be sure to put the extra postage on there.

Thanks, Erin - yeah I needed to buy more stamps for a small mailing a couple of days before the rate increase started, so I just picked up a few $1.00 stamps and a bunch of $1.05 stamps. But I assume now they will start selling $1.05 stamps to make it all easier! :)
