How Much Does A Post Card Stamp Cost
Along with other price increases for postage occurring yet again, as of early 2014, the cost of sending a postcard First-Class will increase one cent to $0.34.
Previously, as of late Jan `013 the rate for sending cards experienced a $.01 increase to $0.33. Tracking further back, the stamp for a post card went from the 2011 fee of $0.29, up an amount three pennies to total 32 cents for the year 2012.
Specifically this is for: a card having dimensions between:
3 1/2" x 5" x .007" thick
4 1/4" x 6" x .016" thick
Large postcards will rise 3 cents to $0.49, up from $0.46 to mail. These have maximum dimensions of 11 1/2" x 6 1/8" x can measure up to 1/4" thick.
TipsPostcards are a great way to save over the price of first class letters. They may work particularly well for announcements, easily accessible hello's, short messages and also for sending many at a time. They go without the risk of "lick and stick" envelopes.
You can even make your own custom inexpensive cards from 4"x6" photos that you take, writing the destination address and placing the stamp right on the photo paper it's printed on.
