The way it was explained to me was that if it's more than 1/4 inch thick and/or not bendable, you can get DC on it. But I don't trust anyone at the post office, honestly, because I get different stories all the time. DCs aren't required this round, but I feel better getting them even though they don't guarantee anything, because I feel like they get a little extra attention.
For me, when I run out of recycled mailers, I put bubble wrap in a greeting card envelope and duct tape it up so it looks ridiculous and can't go missing or get ripped.
US crafters, I have a postal question for y'all:
Last round, I used these square-shaped bubble mailers for CDs to ship pieces, which ended up being more expensive than I was expecting.
This round, I'm thinking I'd liked to just use card stock inside of regular envelopes. My question is, can you get a tracking number with a letter, or does getting a tracking number automatically mean I have to ship it as a parcel? And even if the letter envelope gets mailed as a parcel, surely that would be cheaper than sending a bubble mailer, right?
Thanks for any input you can offer!
