The cost of sending letters within the Isle of Man is set to rise later this month, the Manx post office said.
A spokesman said from 31 March the price will increase from 40p to 42p - bringing it to the same level as postage destined for the UK.
International post is also set to rise with prices starting at 75p for Europe and £1.21 for further afield.
Chairman of Isle of Man Post Geoff Corkish said the changes are partly due to a "decline of mail volumes".
He added: "Other contributory factors include a number of increases to postage and ancillary services as a result of changing commercial agreements with Royal Mail and the need to simplify our tariffs for customers."
Package prices will also change - with European prices rising from £2.69 to £2.74 and from £3.45 to £3.52 for the rest of the world.
