    Postal jump

    Whoa ho ho!
    Just found out that postal rates for US took a big jump.
    Now I'm pretty sure it was 85 cents for US to mail a standard size letter envelope to Canada.
    Is it really now $1.10?!
    A 25 cent hike...
    Canada we seem to up it 2 or 3 cents every year now but that is quite a jump.
    The hobby continues to get more costly bit by bit.

    The US got rid of its Canada/Mexico postal rate. Canada and Mexico or now considered International. Their international rate only went up about 5 cents.
    I had just stocked up on US postage which I now have to suppliment with additional postage. You are right, the hobby is getting more expensive but there is not much we can do about it.

    Anybody knows why they enter the names of the sender and recipient in the computer when sending packages to Canada? It takes forever to ship a package to Canada now with them typing all this info and the customs form. I have not sent pucks within the US since the postal jump. It used to be $2.75 for a puck in a case from PA to CA. I wonder what it is now.

    As my lady just came up with right now " I guess E-Bay shipping rates are going to go up too."
    She's probably right, right?

    I was told last month that to mail a puck within Canada, but outside of BC, where I live costs $35 for a return. Never sent a puck out before. I am shocked. You cant use a 6x8 bubble envelope stuffed with a puck and SASE bubble. I'm sure 2 US stamps does the trick for CDNs mailing to Canada. Some of my single CDN stamps still get by.

    Maybe if it's a lead puck and weighs a couple pounds!
    There's creative ways like that to package it up to cost way less I'm sure...
