All International mail will be $1.10 for the first ounce and the USPS will be issuing a Forever International stamp in a round design. This stamp hasn’t been issued yet.

Delivery confirmation will be FREE on Priority Mail and Parcel Post (now renamed Standard Post). The system at the Phillips Hall Post Office will automatically generate the Delivery Confirmation tracking number. You will need to retain the receipt that prints at the end of the transaction. This is where the number will be listed to track the package. You will not need to fill out the lime green Delivery Confirmation form unless you are sending your item as a First Class parcels or Media mail. Delivery Confirmation will cost $.90 on these services.
