The cost of postage stamps in the United States has been a topic of debate for many years. With the introduction of the Forever Stamp in 2007, the cost of sending mail has become a bit more complicated. Here is a guide to understanding the cost of US Forever Stamps.

What is a Forever Stamp?

A Forever Stamp is a stamp issued by the United States Postal Service (USPS) that can be used to mail a one-ounce letter regardless of when it was purchased or used. The cost of a Forever Stamp is equal to the current First-Class Mail one-ounce rate, but will never expire or decrease in value.

How Much Does a Forever Stamp Cost?

The cost of a Forever Stamp is based on the current First-Class Mail one-ounce rate, which changes from time to time. As of April 2021, the cost of a single Forever Stamp is $0.55. The USPS also offers discounted prices for purchasing stamps in bulk, with prices ranging from $0.50 per stamp for quantities over 500 up to $0.47 per stamp for quantities over 10,000.

What Other Options Are Available?

In addition to purchasing individual stamps, customers can also purchase pre-paid postage such as postcards and envelopes with postage already applied. These products are available at most post offices and online retailers such as Amazon and eBay. Customers can also purchase postage online through services such as Stamps.com or Endicia, which allow customers to print their own postage from their home or office printer.

Understanding the cost of US Forever Stamps can be confusing at first, but with this guide you should now have a better understanding of how much it costs to send mail in the United States. Whether you choose to purchase individual stamps or pre-paid postage products, you can rest assured that your mail will get where it needs to go without any additional costs due to changing rates or expiration dates.
