Mailing Your Invitations

Wedding invitations should be sent to guests six weeks before your day,but, buy your postage now, since mailing services prices will increase on Monday, May 11, 2009.

On May 11 the price for a 1-ounce First-Class Mail stamp will increase from 42¢ to 44¢. Prices for other mailing services — Standard Mail, Periodicals, Package Services (including Parcel Post), and Extra Services — will also change. The average increase by class of mail is at or below the rate of inflation as measured by the Consumer Price Index.

Customers can use their Forever Stamps — regardless of when purchased — to mail 1-ounce letters after the price change, without the need for additional postage. Forever Stamps are widely available through Post Offices, commercial retail outlets such as grocery stores, and online.

Charming Postmark? But of course....
It is easy to get your invitations sent from:

Bliss, NY
Luck, WI
Romance, AR
Sweet, ID
Valentine, NE

Package your invites, write a note addressed to the postmaster asking them to hand stamp your invitations with their lovely postmark. Then follow up by telephone informing the post office of your package's imminent arrival. Allow two weeks for this and be sure sure to ship it via a trackable service.
