United States Postal Service (USPS) rates go up January 27, 2013. While we were able to not raise our rates the last time USPS did, our standard S&H will rise from $11.00 for first item to $12.00 for first item (additional items remain the same at $2.00 per). We will allow a small grace period and plan on implementing the raise in S&H February 1, 2013.

Please note that we did not change our S&H when USPS raised rates in 2012, but the 2013 9% average raise wasn’t one we could absorb.
