TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (CNN) -- Now's the time to stock up on forever stamps, because if you don't, you're about to pay more the next time you mail.

The U.S. Postal Service is upping the cost of a stamp by a penny. The new price will be 46 cents for a letter and 33 cents for a postcard.

The change takes effect Sunday, January 27.

If it seems like the price of stamps just went up recently, you're not far off. It was one year ago this week when we saw the last one-cent bump.
