Royal Mail Prices Increase this month...

In case anyone has missed the announcement, Royal Mail are increasing their postal prices quite significantly at the end of this month.

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


This is a summary of the price increases from the Royal Mail website:

Our stamp prices are increasing from 30 April 2012:
  • 1st Class stamps for letters weighing up to 100g will increase from 46p to 60p
