Remember When Mailing a Letter Cost a Quarter?

The US Postal Service is raising some of their First-Class rates today. Here’s what you’ll pay going forward:
  • Letters: 45 cents -- For thank you cards to casting directors and query letters to literary agents. If you invested in Forever stamps, you’re golden.

  • Postcards: 32 cents -- A 3-cent increase! For announcing TV/film appearances to casting directors or family members.

  • Headshots: $1.08 -- Rate unchanged. Those mailings to those agent or manager you want aren't getting more expensive. Phew!
Complain if you want, but I still think it's pretty amazing that you can put a little sticker on an envelope and someone will deliver it across town or across the country for you. Talk about letting my money work for me!
