Historically, USPS rates changed one time per year in January and were limited to the rate of inflation, which remained relatively flat at 1-3% per year. However, in December of 2020, the Postal Regulatory Commission changed the maximum rate cap for the USPS and allowed them to increase rates above the rate of inflation. Starting in 2023, we should expect to see two rate increases per year for market-dominant products – a smaller increase in January and a larger increase in July.

Therefore, there’s never been a better time to go digital. Our EverView™ platform offers the flexibility needed to allow customers to pay when and where they want with whatever method they chose, the personalization to send out relevant communications based on individualized customer behaviors, and cost-effectiveness – reallocating print costs to more strategic investments.

History of the Post Office: The United States Post Office Department (USPOD; also known as the Post Office or U.S. Mail) was the predecessor of the United States Postal Service, in the form of a Cabinet department, officially from 1872 to 1971. It was headed by the Postmaster General.

The Postal Service Act, signed by U.S. President George Washington on February 20, 1792, established the Department. Postmaster General John McLean, in office from 1823 to 1829, was the first to call it the Post Office Department rather than just the “Post Office.” The organization received a boost in prestige when President Andrew Jackson invited his Postmaster General, William T. Barry, to sit as a member of the Cabinet in 1829. The Post Office Act of 1872 (17 Stat. 283) elevated the Post Office Department to Cabinet status.

During the American Civil War (1861–1865), postal services in the Confederate States of America were provided by the Confederate States of America Post-office Department, headed by Postmaster General John Henninger Reagan.

The Postal Reorganization Act was signed by President Richard Nixon on August 12, 1970. It replaced the cabinet-level Post Office Department with the independent United States Postal Service on July 1, 1971. The regulatory role of the postal services was then transferred to the Postal Regulatory Commission.
