Examples of acceptable non-paper enclosures
You can include non-paper enclosures with your mail items. Some examples are found below.
We accept magnets as enclosures if they’re:
- Not so strong that they cause envelopes to stick to each other or to the equipment
- Firmly attached to the mail item
- Attached so that the non-magnetized (image) side faces the address side of the envelope
We’ll accept a single CD or DVD if you place it inside a pocket in a flexible envelope. You can’t enclose it in a hard jewel case.
You must also meet the following requirements:
- The envelope dimensions must be no more than 174 mm x 136 mm and no less than 170 mm x 129 mm
- The inside pocket must be between 129 mm and 135 mm in width
- You must glue (fuse) the left and right edges of the envelope as shown
- You must glue the trailing edge of the envelope along its entire height
You must submit designs that deviate from these requirements to us for approval.
We’ll accept a single plastic card (for example, a credit card) if it’s:
- Firmly attached to the insert so the card can’t move inside the envelope
- Positioned at least 19 mm up from the bottom edge and at least 10 mm from the right edge
Key tags/single coin
We’ll accept key tags/single coin as enclosures if they’re:
- Firmly attached to the insert with glue or adhesive to prevent any movement
- Between 35 mm and 85 mm up from the bottom edge of the envelope
- 25 mm in from the left and right edges of the envelope
- Outside the postage zone
Please note: Key tags must be made of a flexible material (not metallic). You must cover any windows you use to make the coin visible.
