I decided early on in designing my invites that I was going to have postcard RSVPs. I later learned that the postcard stamps were ugly polar bears. Yuck, but oh well.
Then I learned that postcard rates were going up a whopping 1-cent effective April 17th. Which is just about the time I’ll be sending out invites.
So, I was left wondering, when will the new postcard stamps come out for sale and what will they look like?????
Well…..they go on sale April 7th and look like this:
Yay!! SOOOOO much better than a polar bear! Anyone else super excited about this?

Thank god, these are so much better than the polar bear. They also have a wedding postcard stamp rolling out in August I believe.

Love them 🙂 A polar bear would be a bit weird for a June wedding!

LOL THANK GOD. I was contemplating just eating the extra postage and using a full .44 cent stamp to avoid the polar bear. I have an AUGUST wedding, how stupid looking would a polar bear have been??

I was more worried about the price increase. I thought I would have to put a polar bear (28-cent) and a lamp (1-cent) on each postcard or just eat the cost of a 44-cent stamp. I am thrilled these are coming out the same week I am mailing invites. And even more thrilled that they are cute!!!

great I just bought mine and they were polar bears (these are sooo much nicer)…would have been nice if they told me the price was going up when I bought them! >( now I’m stuck debating buying 1 cent stamps to make sure if people mail back after april it wont be returned postage due…

Adorable!!! I wonder if waiting until april 7th is too long to send my save the dates…

Oh no! Postcard stamps are going up in price?? I just ordered a TON of postcard stamps (custom) for my Save-The-Date Cards and RSVP cards. Save-The-Date Cards are out, but RSVP cards won’t be mailed back until August… Now I have to buy all new custom postcard stamps.
These are really cute stamps though.

ahh!! I wish these had come out when I mailed out my save-the-date postcards last month! These are *way* better than the polar bears.

Awwww, man!!! I get the freakin’ polar bears by, like, a week. I have to get mine out by April 1 b/c my hotel block is only reserved until April 19. Waah!
Oh well, could be worse. Could be mandatory Ronald Reagan stamps.

YES! This is awesome! I knew the stamps were going up to 29 cents but I didn’t even consider they might offer a new design. I had to use the polar bears for my Save the Dates (I thought they were cute, but not ideal) but I’m wicked excited to be able to use the new ones for my RSVP postcards. YAAAAY!

Yay I love the new stamps! I had to use the Polar Bears on my Save-The-Date Cards and was hoping they would come out with a new design before I mailed my invitations. I knew about the increase but hadn’t seen the new postcard stamp design yet. Thanks for sharing.

Ok, so the talk on the new postcard stamps had me wondering…..the rate for 2 oz. letters is going up to 64-cent and 3 oz. letters is going up to 84-cent. I’m not sure when that is happening. Does anyone know?
And- does anyone know what the stamps look like that are coming out in these amounts??
