Is it illegal to send bookmarks in Media Mail ?  I read someone got lots of bookmarks so was wondering if it was with books sent  to them or someother way.

I think it's OK to send bookmarks and small cards as long as they don't have personal notes like long letters written in them.

..or blantant advertising.

I think they also need to be incidental to the package. Bookmarks themselves don't qualify so if it is a big ol' box of just them, then I don't think they qualify for MM. One included with a book is fine. If a box of 150 bookmarks and one book were to be inspected, I'd be praying the PO worker was in a good mood that day.

Thanks so much for the into.  My thoughts was just sending one with a book.  Sounds like that is ok.  Thanks again.
