    You'll soon be paying more to send that birthday card or utility bill in the mail.

    Postage rates are going up once again, with the price of a first-class postage stamp going up a penny to 45 cents.

    It's the first increase in more than two years.

    In the past decade, a first-class stamp has gone up eight cents.

    Remember, "Forever" stamps are always good for whatever the price of a stamp is, no matter how many times the price goes up.

    Postage for postcards are also going up, three cents to 32-cents total.

    Sending mail to Canada and Mexico is not getting any cheaper, either.  Prices for letters across the border are going up five cents, to 85-cents total.
