In the proposed USPS 2020 rate case, there are no price increases to First-Class Mail Letters and Flats (up to 1 oz.) and no change to postcards.  Overall, Priority Mail and Priority Mail Express will increase by 4.1% and 3.5% respectively, but those increases vary by Retail/Commercial, zone, and weight.  Below, we’ve shared a link to the U. S. Postal Service site showing the proposed 2020 USPS rate increase highlights for letters and packages.
