The price for first-class Forever stamps increased to 63 cents from 60 cents this week.

It just got a little more expensive to mail letters in the United States and abroad.

The price for first-class Forever stamps increased to 63 cents from 60 cents this week, a 5% price jump that stemmed from rising operating expenses and losses for the Postal Service.

The change, which went into effect Sunday, was first announced in October. The new rates also include increases in the prices of 1-ounce metered mail, to 60 cents from 57 cents, and domestic postcards, to 48 cents from 44 cents. Sending a 1-ounce letter overseas is now $1.45, up from $1.40.
