An update for Kansas City.

The Stamp Collecting Report, I'm Lloyd de Vries

[music] "Everything's up to date in Kansas City...."  [quick fade] :04

The U-S Postal Service agency in Kansas City that sells stamps and other collectibles is
raising its mailing fee in January - but not by much.

If you call the toll-free number to order stamps - 800 STAMP 24 - or go to the website
U-S-P-S-dot-com, you're dealing with Stamp Fulfillment Services in Kansas City. Its
customers include not only collectors, but also mailers who want stamps.

And its postage-and-handling fee is going from a dollar for U-S customers to a
dollar-twenty-five or a dollar-seventy-five for big orders.

That's really not that much. Other countries' postal agencies charge much more for
domestic orders.

It's been a dollar for more than a decade.

And it's probably still less than the cost of gas to drive around to different post offices
looking for specific stamps.

So it's a pretty good deal.
