Welcome! Price of a Stamp is a simple reference site which keeps track of the current stamp price. Bookmark it if you find it handy — it’s always kept up with the most current info from the USPS.
The price of a stamp went up by 3 cents, effective August 29, 2021. Additional ounces of material in single-piece letters continue to cost an additional 20 cents each. Of course, if you own “Forever” stamps, the value of your stamp goes up or down automatically when the rates change, so there’s not much to worry about. Now that the price has increased by three more cents, if you buy new Forever Stamps, they’ll cost 58 cents each.
Stamps work with single-piece First-Class Mail — basically, a standard letter. If you’re using a common no. 10 envelope, your mail will be eligible for letter pricing. Letters can weight up to one ounce. Technically, letters must be a rectangle. They can be up to 6-1/8 inches high by 11-1/2 inches wide; but there are minimums too: 3-1/2 inches high x 5 inches wide. If these rules aren’t met, other charges can apply, so a single stamp won’t be enough to deliver your item.
