USPS increasing rates as of January 27, 2013

As the United States Postal Service will be raising rates starting January 27, 2013 I regret to state that I will have to raise shipping rate at the same time.

So what does that mean? The current shipping price of a flat rate small box is $5.35, and it will be increasing to $5.80. That is solely the cost of shipping, and does not include packaging materials and labor (or the standard “Handling” part of shipping and handling).

I will do my very best to keep my shipping price increases inline with those of USPS. I am not pleased that they are raising their rates, especially in these tough economic times, but I do understand there need to keep up with inflation and the rising cost of doing business.
