New Prices Coming May 12, 2008
[usps.com...]

A First-Class Mail stamp will be 42. Customers can continue to use the Forever Stamps that they purchased prior to May 12 at 41, even after the price change. We will have 5 billion Forever Stamps in stock to meet increased demand before the price change.

Remember when postage was less than a dime? Or even a nickel? Do you still use "Snail Mail" as much as you used to?

Ah, the good ol' days...

A book of stamps usually lasts me a good 3 months or more. I think all my bills (personal and business) except for one (stupid, low-tech HOA) are now setup for online payment. Every now and then I get the odd bill (like property taxes and state payroll taxes) that I want to send with the actual payment coupon to make sure it gets paid correctly. Almost all business correspondence is by e-mail or fax. Oh, and I'll send physical Christmas cards to a few people.

Who uses postage any more?

I think the printed checks I now have will last me the rest of my life. I write maybe a half-dozen a year.

I guess I do need to get to the post office and get some 1 cent stamps, which will also last me the rest of my life.

I have discovered that I still need to do invoices by snail mail. I have tried doing email, but remarkably it seems when they are electronic and not paper and it is a bill instead of a check the delivery rate falls by 90% or better :)

If I send via email the client can say (after 30 full days) that they didn't get the email, spam filter must have taken it out, what are the chances! I have discovered once I alert them to this over zealous spam filter that seems hell bent on picking off invoices they ask for it again and then take another full 30 days to pay! As if I had just sent it for the first time.

Now I realize this doesn't always happen with all clients, but it seems I don't have the problem when mailing hard copies...go figure.
