The 'forever stamps' are great for standard 1st class postage but what about times when size/weight requires something different?
Also, I'm told that foreign post offices dislike the 'forever stamps' because they want to have the value of the postage explicitly stated due to their varying rules.
I'm sure these problems could be solved if the post office really wanted to but I don't know how big a deal it is.
Here's an idea my brother came up with... why doesn't the Post Office make ALL stamps "forever stamps"? That way they would not have to update and print new ones every time they raised the rates. Would save a lot of money.
Why not? Seems logical to me.
