Here’s what you need to know about the United States Postal Service (USPS) postage stamp rates.

A 5×7 inch invitation weighing less than 1 ounce and subject to a nonmachinable surcharge will cost $1.06 to mail per the rates below. Add $0.24 for every additional ounce.

Are Forever stamps still good for postage? 
Forever stamps are accepted at the 1-ounce mailing rate “forever.” You can use a Forever stamp regardless of when you bought it, or its initial cost. Once you purchase these stamps, you can use them forever without having to worry when rate increases happen.
