NNA welcomes moderation in 2020 postage increases

October 10, 2019

The annual increase in postage classes heavily used by newspapers has been revealed by the U.S. Postal Service and National Newspaper Association was pleased that they are relatively moderate, in line with inflation.

NNA president Matt Adelman, publisher of the Douglas (Wyoming) Budget, said he thought the overall increases in Periodicals postage would be manageable even with other industry stresses in 2020. The average increase for Within County postage will be just under 1.5% and for Outside County about 1.9%. Both of those rates are within the rate cap set by the Postal Regulatory Commission of 1.9 percent. The first-class stamp will remain at 55 cents, pending resolution in a court appeal from last year’s 5 cent increase.
