As wedding stationers we are very thankful for the United States Postal Service and can’t imagine sending invitations any other way! They have just announced however that as of August 1, 2013 they will no longer deliver mail on Saturdays. While this shouldn’t effect mailing invitations much it’s something to be aware of when selecting your RSVP date. Hopefully it will help keep the post office up and running for years to come as they estimate a savings of 2 billion dollars by eliminating Saturday delivery!
Also, as of last week stamps increased by a penny again so if you bought lovely wedding postage and haven’t used it yet (assuming it’s not Forever style) then you’ll need to purchase an additional 1cent stamp to make sure it gets there! Always check with the post office before sending out invitations as the size, shape and weight are all factors for cost as well!
