Good question that I don’t have an answer for.  I would HOPE that by the time you have to mail them that the post office should be able to tell you the amount of the increase.  Don’t they usually give 60 days notice???

there will be plenty of advance notice for any rate increase. worst case scenario, you’ll have to add 1 or 2 cents postage on your rsvps.

Hmmm, hopefully they’ll give enough notice (I’m not realizing that I might have the same issue), if not– hopefully your guests will understand and will probably have some 2 cent stamps around as they’re postage will go up too

Use a forever stamp if you’re worried about it.

I just asked about postage increases at the post office the other day. Postcards are going up 1 cent to 29 cents. First class stamps are staying the same. Prices are going into effect April 17th, 2011, so if you send out your invutes before then, you should be fine, but you will have to remember to put the correct amount of postage on the RSVPs if they are postcards.

@Samantha7: Definitely take the RSVP cards to the post office to make sure that they are acceptable as post-cards. THey have to achieve minimum size requirements AND have a certain flexibility to them–the postal worker will bend them and if they think they’re too thick/stiff, they will tell you you have to buy letter postage.
