8 Cent Us Airmail Stamp

Stamp Price Proliferation In US

Amidst heavy financial losses in the US Postal Service the common man again becomes a target as stamp prices rise up by a full penny. From 44 cents to 45 cents this has been the first time in two and a half years that the US Postal Service (USPS) suffered a price hike, although this price intensification doesn’t apply to stamps that were bought before January 22.

This increase in stamp price is as a result of a never-ending haggle between the USPS and its two labor unions. This may even lead to an arbitrator’s reign.

Though the respective authorities defend their move by saying that a penny rise is just affordable but this increase can go a long way to help the financially weakened Post Office.

Official’s state that this rise can help improve the debt laden Postal Service in US as it will generate revenue of approximately $890 million.

Postmaster General Patrick Donahoe said that the overall price amplification is not high and is immediately required to cater to the needs of the over-burdened postal service. He said they are also trying hard to minimize costs by closing various post offices this year. As a measure to reduce debt, they are also planning to bring “next day delivery” to a halt.

Also the news say that the prices of dispatching a postcard has also increased from 3 to 33 cents, while the cost of posting letters to Canada and Mexico increased from 5 to 85 cents. In addition to this cost of forwarding the letters to other countries are also raised from 7 cents to $1.05.

And who says the common man would not feel the burden??

The statistics in the future can be even more harmful for the USPS as from economics point of view if the price goes on augmenting at the same pace; the USPS may lose all of its present customers and may suffer a serious breakdown.

They are shaped like a rectangle with the ends cut off, thus giving them an octagonal shape. In the process of re-doing the frames, one of them was accidentally done upside-down, and the other was tilted. They also wanted a new airmail stamp for this service, so they rushed the production of the stamp. This is another stamp that has gone through a lot of hands.

These stamps were made by using two transfers, one of the swan, and the other transfer was the frame or lettering. You have poor, good, fine and very fine.
