inexpensive stocking stuffer

bengardeningDecember 11, 2012

I tried to include these in my Christmas cards to the KTers and the post office wouldn't mail them They said they were too thick. SO I had to take them out. If you google BUTTON AND PAPER CLIP BOOKMARK you will see what they are. I had bought these cute lady bug buttons and I could't even send them.

You could have sent it first class but it would have cost more.

I'm surprised that they didn't let them go in the mail.
They don't look all that thick. Too bad they wouldn't have hand-sorted them.

They sure are cute!

I send things that are thick or bulky all the time, they charge an extra 20 cents for them as they are non-machinable. A lot of my things have shank buttons on them, which are super thick.

Maybe you should try a different post office. I can't imagine anyone saying something can't be mailed.

That is my experience also.
The Post Office will mail anything... even a coconut that is addressed!

See the link below for the size and restrictions on First Class Letters, Flats (ie Large Envelopes or padded mailers), and Parcels.

Being and old 'seed trader' I became quite familiar with the regulations.

I can't imagine anyone saying something can't be mailed.
Yes, about 'anything' can be mailed, provided one is willing to pay the required (or additional) postage for what is being sent.

Here is a link that might be useful: Physical Standards for First Class Mail
