Coral Gables, FL—One of our UM-themed postage stamp ornaments was featured by the University of Miami on their newsletter and Instagram! The ornament was hanging from the Spirit Tree, the only orange tree on the Coral Gables campus. The University’s official colors—orange, green, and white—represent the fruit, leaves, and blossoms of the tree.

The United States Postal Service is changing its postage rates, effective January 27, 2019! Here is everything that you need to know!
Each year, the United States Postal Service (“USPS”) reviews its postage rates to determine whether or not to change its rates for the following calendar year. Last year, for example, USPS decided to increase a bunch of postage rates, including the rates associated with standard mailings, two ounce mailings and postcards. This year, USPS has announced that it intends to change its postage rates again. However, the upcoming changes include both increases and decreases to postage rates!
The new prices include a 5-cent increase in the price to mail a standard letter (so an increase from 50 cents to 55 cents). The price for each additional ounce and for the nonmachinable surcharge (e.g., invitations with wax seals or that are square shaped) is decreasing and will be reduced to 15 cents (down from 21 cents). This means that a typical wedding invitation (a mailing that weighs 2-ounces or is lighter, but subject to the nonmachinable surcharge) will cost less to mail, decreasing from 71 cents to 70 cents!
The proposed increase is set to take effect on January 27, 2019, but it is still subject to final approval by the Postal Regulatory Commission (PRC).
