Is it almost time to mail the invitations to your Wedding, Mitzvah or other special soiree? If you have already purchased your postage or if you want to save a few cents (every penny counts when trying to stick to a budget), be sure to get your invitations in the mail by April 16th. On April 17th USPS rates will increase in many categories. While one-ounce First Class stamps will remain at $.44, several other postal values which are popular for invitations will increase. For instance, the rate for postcards (a popular option for RSVP cards) will increase from $.28 to $.29 and First Class Postage for up to 2 ounces will increase from the current rate of $.61 to $.64.

And while I am on the topic of postage, isn't the USPS's new Neon Celebrate Forever $.44 stamp (pictured above) so fabulous?
