Semi-postals cost the same

Postage prices may have changed, but the price of the two semipostal stamps hasn’t. That’s because the 45-cent semipostal rate meets the pricing formula mandated by federal law.

According to USPS News Link, the Breast Cancer semipostal stamp has raised more than $47.9 million for research from the sales of more than 678 million stamps. The Stop Family Violence semipostal has raised nearly $2.3 million for domestic violence programs from more than 34 million stamps sold.

Each stamp is good for the First-Class single ounce rate of 39 cents.
