How Much Does A Post Card Stamp Cost

On January 22, 2023 the cost of a postcard will be $0.48. An amount 4 cents higher than the $0.44 price set July of 2022. Which was then 10% over the $0.40 price of August 2021. Prior to this, postcards only rose a cent on january 24, 2021 to $0.36

The January `023 date is the same as for other rate announcements, including that for certain postage stamp prices.

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

To send a postcard to an international destination the rate is $1.40 using the Global Forever stamp.

Large postcards have maximum dimensions of 11 1/2" x 6 1/8" and can measure up to 1/4" thick, cost the $.60 stamp fee to send - the same as sending first class.

Postcards 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, writing the destination address and placing the stamp right on the photo paper that it's printed on.
