Under the Postal Accountability and Enhancement Act, they will adjust mail prices each May. By law, these prices can increase on average no more than the rate to be determined by the Consumer Price Index.

As for the Forever Stamp which features the image of Liberty Bell, you can use it no matter how prices may change in the future. But that too will increase by $0.01 by May 12.

Customers will need to attach additional postage since international prices are higher than domestic prices.The value of the Forever Stamp is the domestic First Class letter price in effect on the day of use.
