In netherlands is 67 eurocents and they post mail service sucks!Slow, not reliable, and when it comes to registered letters they charge hell of money!and still they suck.Courrier is preferable!I total adore royal mail 1st class stamp is only 22p or 40 cents..so reliable fast

Express Mail - Snail mail
All postal services seem slow now, we are so used to email or instant messaging.

In the UK a First Class stamp costs 32p for a letter up to 100g. A Second Class stamp is 23p. If I want to send a letter abroad, to the USA, for example, a 20g letter would be 72p but then it goes up by stages to £2.31 for 100g. (at about $1.90 = £1.00, you can more or less double these prices for the $ amount)

I really like how well you explaied stamps and their cost in your coutry..usually most tell me the price of one stamp and I am assuming it is the normal price for mailing the letter within their country; but, you have really gone all out..and answered my follow up question without me having to ask ..so I have selected your answer for the best response..and of course..as I do for all .a nice plus sign for you efforts;)+

Thank you for the little pencil! I do try to give useful answers to questions. I'm sure it doesn't make economic sense, really, but since I know I shall never be rich from answering questions, I just try to give the best value for money! It seems that your internal post is quite a bit cheaper than ours!

Hey =) Here in the Netherlands a stamp costs €0,39 too. They have been this price for a very long time... I think thats why they desided to make them more expensive at the 1st of january. Then they will cost €0,44.. Have a nice day!

The prices of local postage in Icland recently went up to 55 Icelandic Krona (IKR). At todays exchange rate that would make around $.78 so we are paying double what you are paying. It doesn't affect me much as I don't send much snail mail anymore but I need a lot of stamps for my business but my clients pay for the stamps so it's not out of my pocket.

Of course, a lot of postal services must have really suffered with the popularity of email.

stamp prices are ruled by an international authority, so it should be similar in most of the developped countries ...
• United States
12 Nov 06
Our stamp prices are ruled by the post master general of the USA and I suppose some kind of council..I find it hard to believe the postmaster wakes up one morning and says after drinking his morning coffee "it's time to raise stamp prices again.." there must be a consesus and counsel of some sort that helps make such an important decision+

It is a little unclear at the moment because the Post Office has recently changed the system. It was 28 pence for a first class stamp, but now there are 2 first class stamps, one for a standard letter and 1 for a larger letter. This is not a reference to weight, so a lighter mailing in a larger envelope would cost more. Our Royal Mail service is notorious for it's strange ideas, but this system is ridiculous even by their standards.

So you would do better to jam more into a smaller envelope and pay less?Is this right?Sorry to hear that the royal postal service like to have royal prices;)+

Since you say your stamps cost 39 cents I assume you, too, are in the United States of america..Am I correct.? Do you usually buy the generic stamps or the commemorative stamps?_+

.39 and it just keeps going up. I wonder how high stamps will be in the next ten years. I am sure they will reach $1.00 before I die.
• United States
12 Nov 06
I say they raise stamps maybe 3 times a year and the average boost is 2 cents ..so on the average they raise the price of stamps 6 cents a year..You are not planning to do too soon are you?+

• United States
12 Nov 06
NO I don't since phone calls are unlimited in the usa..through voip and other carriers and emails are much quicker..I do not use postage stamps as often as they did in the medieval ages ( did they use stamps back then..LOL) I did go all out today and buy ten stamps..and since it wasn't the post office I paid $4.50 for 10 stamps..which means they made a wopping 60 cents on my purchase at foodland supermarket;)+
