The U.S. Postal service is now charging Americans a penny more for stamps and postcard mailings.
The price of a first-class stamp for domestic mail rose Sunday from 45 cents to 46 cents, while postcards cost 33 cents to send.
The USPS rolled out the pricing changes alongside a new stamp – the Global Forever – which lets people mail one-ounce letters to anywhere in the world for $1.10.
Other new services include free tracking for packages and the option of receiving a signature upon delivery for critical mail items, WALA reports.
