How many stamps do I need USPS?

For any domestic mail piece that weighs more than one ounce, you must include additional postage along with your Forever Stamp to ensure USPS delivery. Also, you may purchase higher denomination postage stamps for heavier postage at the Post Office™. Avoid placing two Forever Stamps on a mail piece for heavier mail.

What is the maximum weight for a 49 cent stamp?

Use First-Class Mail if your mailpiece is less than 13 ounces and you don’t require overnight delivery or USPS Tracking. First-Class Mail Letter (1 oz.) retail rate will increase three cents from $0.46 to $0.49. Each additional ounce will cost an extra $0.21 (one cent increase from 2013).
