    As a public service announcement; I'd like to remind my fellow pinheads to get any outstanding orders into their various vendors - now.

    USPS is raising the rates (again) across the board:
    https://stamps.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/1685

    For Pinball-Mods.com; our ecommerce site will automatically increase the rates on the 27th. But I'm sure other vendors (comet, titan, etc) likely have automated systems for increasing rates. What I don't know right now is how the issues below will impact my customers.

    The BIGGEST change will effect 90% of my customers. Up until the 27th; First class rates were only calculated by weight. As of the 27th; USPS will now charge for weight AND distance. I don't yet know what the impact is; but I suspect the difference won't be "marginal".

    The moral of the story; If you didn't take advantage of the Black Friday sales last year... and have outstanding needs but don't want to pay more for shipping - now is the time to do your orders.
