2012 USPS Postage Rates for Wedding Invitations

2012 wedding invitation postage rates uspsThe USPS is raising rates in a few days (January 22, 2012). I can’t wait to see the new stamps. I’m particularly looking forward to the new bonsaii and cherry blossom ones.

Now is a good time to stock up on those Forever stamps! And remember if you are sending out invitations with reply envelopes you expect to receive after January 22nd to put an extra penny stamp on them to ensure delivery back to you.

Here’s a quick guide to 2012 USPS rates as they apply to most wedding invitations:

  • Save the date, Reply Envelope (with single reply card inside), Single card/invitation: 45 cents
  • Invitation set (invitation, reply card, reply envelope, and another card or two, up to 2 oz.): 65 cents
  • Response postcard: 32 cents

Keep in mind: square envelopes/postcards, non-bendable envelopes, and extra thick envelopes don’t fit through the USPS machines, so there is an additional fee for being non-machinable — check with local post office for rates or use the usps’s handy postage price calculator.

Besides buying stamps at your local post office, you can buy official USPS stamps online at USPS.com. There are lots of pretty ones to choose from. If you’re looking for something a bit more custom, check out Delphine’s Zazzle shop with stamps to match most of our invitation designs. If you don’t see what you’d like, or need the colors/monogram switched out just let us know and we’ll whip something up for you.
