Is It Legal to Mail Magnets?
Yes, you are allowed to ship magnets in the mail within the United States. However, there are some restrictions for air service. To legally mail magnets, they cannot qualify as a hazardous material. This basically means the magnets you mail shouldn’t have the magnetic field strength to cause deviation of aircraft instruments. (Meaning the field strength must be 5.25 milligauss or less at 15 feet from the surface of the package.)
Per these guidelines, all to the magnetic marketing materials offered through Magnets USA® can be mailed out to customers and prospective clients without restrictions. We are happy to mail out the marketing materials you purchase from us directly to your customer list to save you time and money.
However, should you choose to mail these yourself, the USPS sets guidelines for shipment of these materials which can be found here.
