Printed Papers Rates 1990-2012

Introduction

In 1990 the distinction between "full" and "reduced" rate printed papers was abandoned and thereafter there was a single surface printed papers rate. The weight limit is normally 2kg, but 5kg for packets containing only "books, leaflets and pamphlets".

From 2012 the rates for printed papers and small packets above 100g up to the maximum weight (5kg for printed papers, 2kg for other items) were identical to the corresponding letter rates.
