I saw in the help section that one of the requirements of DC is "rigid package or 3/4" thick". Can someone please clarify this for me? Rigid means??? and 3/4" thick - can it be no thinner or no thicker? I have a set of 3 small pb's to send. Thanks for the help.
i didn't ever remember seeing that, so i went looking to try to find this.
here's what's in the help center:
Are there any requirements to use Delivery Confirmation?
Yes, provided that the package is at least 3/4 of an inch thick ("at its thickest point"), according to USPS Delivery Confirmation Regulations, and is being sent to a USPS-validated address.
so to answer your questions, as long as the package is at least 3/4" thick, you don't have to worry about the others. (and you can always add a couple of lightweight layers - perhaps a wadded up plastic bag - if it's not). 3 paperbacks - unless they're super-skinny childrens books - will probably be more than 3/4 of an inch, especially when wrapped.
rigid is the opposite of flexible, so most books will qualify.
