Longtime reader, first time poster. I learned TODAY about the postage increase going into effect. I mailed our wedding invitations about two weeks ago, and at the time no one at the post office mentioned (when I was buying 40 postcard stamps!) that the rate was about to increase. So all of our RSVP postcards have a 28-cent stamp on them.
Many of our RSVP cards have trickled in, but not all. Does anyone know what will happen to RSVPs sent with insufficient postage? A best case scenario would be that we get “postage due” notices as the postcards trickle in, and have to pick them up at the post office and pay the balance. But I’m worried that some won’t make the trip. Has anyone else dealt with this?
I hope I’m the only one in this situation! What a hassle.
Thanks for all the help,

Fortunately, I didn’t send out all 250 of my invites out! I almost did.
My Maid/Matron of Honor went to the post office and asked what woud happen if I sent it out earlier with 28 cent stamps. The employee told her that the addressee (which is you) would receive a notice on your post card saying you need to pay 1 cent extra.
I can totally feel your frustrations especially when there was barely any notice about the postage increase.

Yeah, I learned the same thing just yesterday. We are still missing over half our RSVP cards, and they aren’t due until May 1st. We’ll see what happens, I guess…

Well here in Canada they honour the previous stamps when there is an increase.

Yeah, you should get them all as postage due.
