PSA-Postal prices are going up drastically Jan. 27

Just a friendly PSA, but postal prices are going to take a jump on January 27th.

International prices are rising rather drastically, IMO. First class international for 1-2 ounces will now start out at $6.55, even to Canada!

First-Class Package International Service
Effective January 27, 2013, the Postal Service is transferring First-Class Mail International packages and rolls from the market dominant (Mailing Services) product list to the competitive (Shipping Services) product list and renaming it First-Class Package International Service™ (FCPIS). The same mailing requirements such as price groups, maximum value, and weight limits apply.
The pricing structure for FCPIS will be more simplified in that there will be one price of $6.55 for 1- to 2-ounces to anywhere in the world; 3- to 4-ounces within each country price group will have identical prices; and 5- to 8-ounces within each country group will have identical prices. New for January 2013, free electronic USPS Delivery Confirmation International offers scan events for customers using select software or online tools. E-USPS DELCON INTL is optionally provided for First-Class Package International Service to select destinations. It will be available only to Canada to start with.
ETA: This spreadsheet is pretty helpful in putting the international cost in black and white.
