New year and new postage rates. In ten days, the Post Office is raising their shipping rates. Domestic US rates is going up a little for stamps and more for priority shipping. Priority Mail retail prices will increase an average of 6.3%.
However, International rates are skyrocketing. A 56% increase, yikes! On January 27, the cost of mailing a small padded envelope weighing 2 ounces to Canada, will go from $3.15 to $6.15.
I keep my shipping cost as low as possible and will continue to do so. I will be slightly increasing prices on some items in my sewing shop ( SibStudioSewing ), as well as increasing the international shipping fees, next weekend. Because I only ship to Domestic US and Canada from my art shop ( SibStudio ), there will be a slight increase in some of my shipping fees only. Thank you for your understanding.
