The U.S. Postal Service announced plans to hike postage rates on several different types of mail in April, but the cost of sending Mother's Day cards in May will stay the same.

The postal service said the cost of a stamp for a basic letter will remain 44 cents, but the price to send larger envelopes, periodicals, parcels, international mail, advertisements and postcards will go up on April 17.
