I call on all mail artists to take control of your postal rates by getting a digital scale and use the post office rate book to work out your own post to its maximum rate. Also it means by buying stamps and using them at home you get real stamps rather than the print out labels. Also remember when you get a piece of mail with an unfranked stamp its good to send back into the network to support your fellow artists.

Mail Artists its time to pull our weight!
We all know that postal costs are going up, but what we seem to be over looking is that so often we send our post under weight. In Australia the postal international letter rates for weights at the present moment are: up to 50g $2.35, over 50g up to 125g $4.70 and over 125g up to 250g is $7.05. Its easy to go just over and have to play the next rate.
