Postage stamps increase in price

Postage stamps will increase in price from January 1 2013, PostNL announced on Tuesday to the delight of investors.

A stamp for post within the Netherlands goes up from 50 cents to 54 cents and within Europe from 85 cents to 90 cents. Business post will cost an average 5% more.
The price increase is necessary because the amount of post is still decreasing, PostNL said.
