The cost to mail a letter through the United States Postal Service will increase Sunday.

The cost of stamps for 1-ounce letters is going up to 49 cents, from 47 cents.

Other items, however, are staying the same, including postcards at 34 cents and international letters at $1.15.

“Stamp prices have stayed consistent with the average annual rate of inflation since the Postal Service was formed in 1971,” according to the USPS.

The most recent stamp price increase was January 2014.
