Unfortunately, as of January 2018, the Postal Service has been routinely inspecting USPS Media Mail packages for T-SHIRTS, HOODIES, PATCHES, FLAGS, and any other form of clothing or items not eligible for the Media Mail rate.
If you chose the Media Mail shipping option for an order that contains clothing or any other item besides a CD, LP, TAPE, DVD, or VHS the package will be at risk of being searched by the US Postal System which may delay your order and add extra unnecessary expense.
If you still choose the Media Mail option, the following things could happen:
DHR will hold your order until you respond to our email that will include the additional postage cost that will be charged.
USPS will charge you for any excess postage they deem necessary before delivering your package.
The package might return to our warehouse with postage due which will be billed to you the customer + the additional postage to re-ship your package.
Note: Media Mail shipping is a cost-effective way to ship within the United States but is restricted to sound and video recordings, such as CDs, LPs, Tapes, DVDs, VHS Tapes, as well as printed paper products, such as, magazines, books, posters, etc.
Note: U.S. customers are very welcome to select USPS Media Mail for the cheapest shipping option on items that are eligible for the rate. The delivery time usually takes 7-10 days depending on where you live.
Note: For example, the maximum package weight for Media Mail is 70lbs (31.8kg) and will only cost roughly $37.90. That's aroun 280 CDs or 80 vinyl LPs, which is very affordable!
