If I use velcro to attach doll outfits to paper dolls, will it go through? I did not think it would, but I wanted to make sure for a friend of mine. What if an embroidered piece of cloth or ribbon was glued to a card, would that go through?
Thank you!! :)

If it is a small piece of Velcro to attach paper doll clothes, it should go through. The embroidered piece of cloth or ribbon still will not.

"A paper garland that fits the size guidelines (8 1/2′′ x 11′′ x 1/4′′) but is tied together with string or ribbon is fine. We will also send small pieces of ribbon. It’s just large quantities of ribbon that we can’t send. "

I was wondering if it was true that you can send ribbon. I am slightly confused ;)

Hey Lizzie - so, it's going to take me a little bit of time, but I'm working with our correspondence team supervisor to make one ginormous list of what we can send. We'll try to make sure it includes all of these things that (even we as employees) have been told cannot be sent, but later find out some have or can be sent. So, stay tuned: once we are done, we'll post it here, on OC and on the main .com FAQ page for correspondence.
