Our website is up to date with the current cost of postage and gives you the latest and most recent price of postal services. We have designed our site so that it is easy to look up postal rates quickly. The most common question is 'how much does a stamp cost?', because no one wants to put the wrong amount of postage on a letter and have it get rejected. The postal service can change the price of postage at any time, and most people do not send letters or packages every day to remember what the going rate is, or what the price would be for a specific size or weight of letter. That is where our site comes in handy in giving you quick and expedient data on postage rates.
