Send mail to its destination with the right postage
Use postage stamps to send letters, cards and other light-weight papers. Pricing is based on the destination, weight and size of your item. Save money when you buy booklets or coils of stamps at a stamp retailer or online.

Larger letter mail
If the item you’re sending is a little bit heavier than the standard size (0-50 g), it’s considered over-size and the postage rate will differ. You can use our online rate tool to get postage rates for heavier letter mail. Note that the maximum weight for letters is 100 g.
Older stamps displaying money values can still be used on your mail. If you have enough to equal the current stamp price, use them as you would use the new, permanent stamps. If you need more to make up the difference in postage, you can get it at your post office.
