Service Talk: Breast Cancer Research Semipostal Stamp

On May 14, 2007, along with the new prices for domes­tic and international mail, we will raise the price for the Breast Cancer Research semipostal stamp from 45 cents to 55 cents. The Governors of the Postal Service™ determined to raise the price in order to meet the require­ments of the law creating the stamp and in connection with the increase in the First-Class® nonautomation single-piece first-ounce letter rate increase. The design of the stamp will not change, and the postage value of the stamp will continue to be the First-Class single-piece first-ounce letter rate. It is important that you continue to remain dili­gent in accurately reporting sales of semipostal stamps.

As a reminder:

The Breast Cancer Research semipostal stamp will be on sale through December 31, 2007. The end date was established by recent legislation. The Postal Service is very proud of the fact that the stamp has raised more than $53 million for research.
