I'm posting this here first b/c I think this board gets a little more traffic than the postal board.  Here's what I want to do:  send a deck of cards inside a cloth bag along with another deck of cards in a plastic bag.  Is the cloth bag OK for media mail?

Sheena -

The cards themselves aren't eligible for Media Mail.

Jeanne, Thank you! 

The package is an uneven thickness, too, so I think that disqualifies it for Media Mail also.

thickness shouldn't have anything to do with it, but as Jeanne said it is not eligible for media mail.  they shouldn't weigh much so first class shouldn't cost that much

Rigid, nonrectangular, and pieces that are not uniformly thick must be prepared as parcels and pay parcel rates (373.1.3).

I found this after I posted the question.
