How much does a book of 12 First-class stamps cost?


As of June 2014, the U.S. Postal Service charges $5.88 for a book of 12 first-class stamps. Each stamp costs 49 cents. Most stamps sold are Forever Stamps, which will remain sufficient postage to mail a standard letter even if the cost of postage increases in the future.

According to the USPS, the price of a first-class stamp has increased every year since 2006 with the exception of 2010 and 2011. In 2006, the price was 39 cents a stamp. In 2007, the Forever Stamp was introduced and has become the standard for stamps. This eliminates the need to purchase 1 cent stamps to make up the difference in postage each time the price of stamps increases.
