SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On January 13, 2011, the Postal Service 
filed a notice of Mailing Services price adjustments with the Postal 
Regulatory Commission to be effective on April 17, 2011. This final 
rule provides the mailing standards that would accompany new prices.

First-Class Mail International

    The overall price increase for First-Class Mail International[reg] 
is approximately 5.1 percent. More specifically, postcards increase by 
1 percent, letter-size pieces increased by 1.9 percent, flat-size 
pieces increased by 4.0 percent, and package-size pieces increased by 
7.8 percent.

Postcards

    The price structure for postcards now includes only two separate 
price categories: Canada and Mexico, and all other countries. 
Previously, Canada and Mexico were priced separately. The price for 
postcards increases by approximately 1.0 percent.
