Mailing a letter will cost 2Â¢ more beginning May 14. That’s the bad news.
The good news is that the USPS is issuing a new “forever” stamp, which will sell for 41Â¢ and can be used for any future one-ounce letter mailingâ€”regardless of subsequent increases in the First-Class rate.
The stamp art features a computer-generated image of the Liberty Bell by nationally acclaimed artist Tom Engeman of Brunswick, Maryland. His previous projects for the Postal Service include stamped cards for Carlsbad Caverns National Park (2002), Ohio University (2003), and Columbia University (2003), as well as the 2003 American Eagle definitive stamp, and the National World War II Memorial stamp issued in 2004.
