The new postage rate went into effect a couple of weeks ago. (I'm especially aware of this because I've been helping my Mom address some things.) With every rate increase, I'm always curious to see what new designs the U.S. Postal Service is going to release.
I love a new opportunity to "dress" my mail with a beautifully designed stamp (or stamps). Check out the newest options for a $0.44 stamp, now required to mail a first-class letter in the United States.
You can also use the older $0.42 stamp as long as you don't forget to add an additional $0.02 accompaniment. Those options also make a nice statement.
Of course, you can still create your own custom stamp for that extra special occasion.
