NEWS: A New Post Office Wedding Cake Stamp

First class postage goes up tomorrow: to 45 cents for the first half ounce of a letter and 32 cents for standard-size post cards (3″ x 5″ to 4″ x 6″).

The U.S. Postal Service has also issued a 65-cent Wedding Cake stamp, to accommodate those thick wedding invitations (up to two ounces).

First introduced in 2009, this latest addition to the U.S. Postal Service’s Weddings series is available at Post Offices nationwide, online at and by phone at 800.782.6724.

The three-tier wedding cake in the photo, topped with white flowers and green leaves, was created by pastry chef Peter Brett of Washington, D.C.
