Postage increase

I hate to do it, but I have to adjust the rate of postage for my bassoon reeds. The US Postal service raised the price on Priority Mail packages by nearly a full dollar for the small flat rate boxes this month. http://www.endicia.com/usps/postage-rate-change/2016

I’ve always charged exactly the cost of postage for me. With the flat rate boxes, and using recycled newspaper for packing material, that means it’s only the rate charged by the post office. I don’t have to buy packing and shipping supplies (other than tape and a sheet of paper for the label). So while this jump is significant, I wasn’t making any money on shipping anyway. I unfortunately have to change my shipping to reflect the new cost to me of a flat rate shipment to $6.10 (and that’s not considering that paypal takes their cut of what I charge as well).
