Royal Mail has confirmed that a price increase for stamps will take effect from 26th March 2018. This increase will affect both first class and second class stamps.

The current price for a first class stamp is 65p and the price of these will increase by 2p to 67p. Alongside this, the current price for a second class stamp is 56p and this will also increase by 2p to 58p.

Royal Mail stated that they understand that it is hard for companies in the current economic environment and any changes to stamp prices have been considered carefully to help minimise the impact on customers.

UK Standard Offers Reliable Delivery

The standard service from Royal Mail offers a great range of reliable delivery options that is particularly ideal for sending non-valuable items. What is great value for money about stamps is that both first and second class stamps have no expiry date, allowing them to be used at any time regardless of when they were bought.

Alongside this, Fixed Price Stamps that feature a monetary value such as 1p, 2p or £1 also do not have an expiry date, allowing them to be used at any time to make up the value of postage. For a full list of the price changes on stamps that will be implemented on 26th March 2018 please see the table below.
