{ Plan Ahead } Postage Hike!

Come May 11th, the US Postal Service will be increasing their postage. Why do I bring this up? Because you really need to keep this in mind with your reply cards. As is proper etiquette, having a self addressed envelope for your guests to reply to your invite is customary. If your "please reply by:" date is past May 11th, well, you get the idea.....

My suggestion and the safest bet is to buy the Forever Stamp (above). Why chance it? And while we're on the subject of postage, some of you may forget when ordering your stationary to keep in mind you may be paying a higher postage fee. Check with the USPS website and look up your envelope size and weight in ounces. This is one of those unexpected expenses if you don't plan ahead!
