On the 30th April a 1st class stamp will increase to 60p and a second class stamp will increase to 50p!
Unfortunately, as a result of this I will have to increase prices on my website from the 30th April, because the increases are too big for me to absorb.
Full details can be found here: Royal Mail Prices 2012
