More On The 2009 Rates

I have just found five minutes to look again at the new postage rises for 6th April 2009. Just a quick run down on how these will affect us.

Of the new values in the pipe line the 17p and 22p stamps will be the make up values for normal sized letters from standard to to large, 17p being the make up for 2nd class large and 22p the make up for 1st class large.

Large 1st class stamps will be rising to 61p and large 2nd class stamps rising to 47p

The new 54p value will cover international surface mail and the new 62p value will cover postcard and air letter letter rates up to 10gr. The new 90p value will cover postcard and air letter rates up to 20gr.

European airmail up to 20gr will be serviced by the existing 56p value stamps , the original E NVI stamps are still valid for this service.

Your comments are welcome.

Is there news of the regional definitives changing to align with the new machins?

Last year we had country (new stamps) with the values of 50p and 81p.

I am not sure about which rates these covered, but I think we can expect at least 2 new ones, for this year 2009)

A new 62p value may be released to cover postcard and air letter letter rates up to 10gr. And a new 90p value may join the fold to cover postcard and air letter rates up to 20gr.

I guess only time will tell.
