From April 2011 the Royal Mail will raising the price of stamps:
1st Class will rise 5p
2nd Class will rise 4p
I must say that I still like receiving hand written letters but these are now very far and few between.
Has anyone noticed that credit card and loan letters have increased recently and before the recession our household must have received at least half a dozen a week.
An old boss of mine could tell the state of the economy by looking at the amount of franked mail in the Mail Centre, he said that one house sale used to generate up to 30 letters, not sure if that is the case these days with couriers and email.
