USPS 2016 Postage Rates for U.S. Postal Stamps

The United States Postal Service will have a postage rate change effective April 10, 2016. All of our custom stamps are now available at the new 2016 rates. All stamps on a sheet (20 stamps) must have the same design and postage value, but you can order as many different sheets as you want. We do not offer custom postage denominations at this time.
