					USPS new shipping prices effective January 18, 2009

Price changes for mailing services, including First-Class prices, will be
announced in February, and will be effective in May 2009.

As announced by its Board of Governors, the U.S. Postal Service has
announced new shipping prices. The new shipping prices will go into
effect on Sunday January 18, 2009.

       -      Express Mail overall increases 5.7%
       -      Priority Mail overall increases 3.9%
       -      Global Express Guaranteed (GXG) increases 11.2%
       -      Express Mail International increases 8.5%
       -      Priority Mail International increases 8.5%
       -      International M-Bags increases 8%

The Postal Service is also introducing a new, smaller Priority Mail flat-
rate box. The new box is priced the same as the Flat-rate envelope
and provides a great option for customers sending smaller items that
require sturdy packaging and the convenience of flat rate pricing.

This is the first time the Postal Service has adjusted prices for its
shipping services on a different schedule from its mailing service
price adjustments. Price changes for mailing services, including
stamp prices, will be announced in February, and will be effective in
May 2009.
