PRC Proposed 2021 Rates

U.S. Postal Service Announces New Prices for 2021

No Increase in Forever Stamp

The United States Postal Service filed notice with the Postal Regulatory Commission (PRC) today of price changes to take effect Jan. 24, 2021.

The proposed prices, approved by the Postal Service Board of Governors, would raise Mailing Services product prices approximately 1.8 percent for First-Class Mail and 1.5 percent for other categories. Although Mailing Services price increases are based on the consumer price index, competitive International Shipping Services prices are primarily adjusted according to market conditions. The governors believe these new rates will keep the Postal Service competitive while providing the agency with needed revenue.

PCC Celebrates 60 Years

Celebrating 60 Years of the PCC

1961 - 2021

 

As we begin 2021, the National PCC Program Office is pleased to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the PCC and announce a special tagline to commemorate the occasion. 

Mail Users Councils, renamed Postal Customer Councils (PCCs) in 1971, were first established in 1961 in 300 large cities. The councils’ initial focus was to improve mail service by encouraging postal customers to deposit mail earlier in the day or in staggered increments, to avoid delays in mail processing. Later, the councils served as open channels of communication for local business and postal executives to exchange ideas and information, from best mailing practices, to solving local challenges. Through the years, PCCs have evolved to promote and maintain a strong partnership between Postal and Industry through meetings, educational programs, mailer clinics and seminars.

To celebrate the PCC’s 60th anniversary, the PCC Advisory Committee, Marketing and Communication Sub-Committee worked with the National PCC Program Office and USPS Brand team to create the official 60th anniversary tagline, “Celebrating 60 Years of the PCC.”  We encourage PCCs to use this tagline throughout this year in your communication material to highlight the 60 years of PCC success; however, as specified in our style guidelines we ask you NOT to place the tagline near the PCC logo. This would alter the logo which is not approved.

In addition, keep an eye out as we relive major milestones and conduct interviews with previous members who had a major impact on the PCC.

We look forward to sharing all things PCC with you.
