New Royal Mail 2015 prices are now in force

Don’t forget that the new Royal Mail prices are now in force.

To précis the headlines: the price of a stamp will rise 1p so that means a First Class stamp rises to 63p and a Second Class stamp is now 54p.

Royal Mail have held the promotional price for Small Parcels up to 2k at £2.80 and they’ve also reduced the prices for 1kg and 2kg Medium parcels.

You can find the official rack rates on the RM website here. Tamebay also reported these changes a few weeks ago with added commentary.

Here’s the new versus old prices for Royal Mail’s major services:
