Changes to Postal Rates

The New Year is nearly upon us which means celebrations and new beginnings. It is a time to reflect, set goals, and try new things. Here at MasterPrint we are reflecting on all we have achieved within 2018: updating our brand, buying two new digital presses, and increasing our social media presence among many other wonderful achievements!

The New Year is also the time to make changes. One such change, as recently announced by the Postal system, is an increase in postage rates. Beginning January 27, 2019 the cost to mail your letter, magazine, and postcard etc. may change. Below is a list of the most common pieces that are mailed by our customers and how their rates may be affected.
