Today's "Death of Film" News, #34

Postage went up today - up 5% for a First Class letter - and it actually went DOWN for additional ounces - but non-machine-readable items - lumpy stuff like, say, film mailers - got completely p4wn3d.

A mailer -by weight - would actually have gone down to 58 cents (from 63 cents) - but the new "shape" rates make it a "large envelope", and 97 cents: up 54%.

It still pays to send multiple rolls together, but: jeez!

Film mailers now become even less competitive.... (I have about 50-60 still on hand.)
