With the new year, comes an increase in stamp prices to 49 cents, up 3 cents from the current price.

A book of first-class one-ounce stamps will now cost $9.80. Forever Stamps purchased before the increase will still be valid for all one-ounce letters.

The changes, proposed in September, are intended to generate $2 billion in revenue for the postal service.

Below is the breakdown of all single-piece first-class mail pricing and increases that will go into effect on Jan. 26, 2014.

  • Letters (1 oz.)—3-cent increase to 49 cents

  • Letters additional ounces—1-cent increase to 21 cents

  • Letters to all international destinations (1 oz.)—$1.15

  • Postcards—1-cent increase to 34 cents
