Postage Rate Increase

by @ 10:29 am. Filed under Registry Ops

In case you missed it, the cost of first-class mail will rise from the current $0.37 for the first ounce to $0.39. Each additional ounce will cost another $0.24. This all becomes effective January 8, 2006. It becomes effective at this registry sooner than that, however. We require customers who want their documents returned to leave with us a self-addressed stamped envelope for the return of those documents. Because we wait until after the document has been scanned, microfilmed, and the microfilm developed and checked, we normally mail back documents about six weeks after recording. Our plan is to accelerate this process and mail back as much of our inventory of already recorded documents as we can between now and January 8. For the rest, we’ll just have to add the additional postage ourselves. But, beginning January 3, 2006, we will require that self-addressed stamped envelopes left for the return of documents have the proper post January 8 postage. We won’t be checking for the proper postage, but we won’t be using envelopes that have insufficient postage, either.
