The cost of a first class stamp will rise by 9p to 85p on 1 January, Royal Mail has announced.
A second class stamp will also go up in price, rising by 1p to 66p on the same day.
We need to be aware of this and build it into our calculations for expenditure. It is likely that we will also see this reflected in the prices quoted to us by printers. You may want to stock up on stamps now to make sure you have them in the office!
