The biggest price hike for postage in decades is set to happen Sunday.

Stamps are set to increase Jan. 27, and it's the biggest price hike for postage since 1991.

 Back in October, the U.S. Postal Service board of governors requested a 5 cent increase to the forever stamp, upping the price to 55 cents.

The USPS said the change would also reduce the additional ounce price of letters.
