I don't see on the USPS website where a bound college thesis/dissertation qualifies for Media Mail, yet there are bookbinding companies that will hardbound your thesis and ship it to you Media Mail, so I am confused if it qualifies or not. What are your conclusions?

I always used insured media mail when sending dissertations and theses back to customers. It was 100% effective and pretty fast.

From what I know about Media Mail, any printed matter that meets the USPS specifications for size and weight can be sent via Media Mail.

A thesis qualifies for Media mail whether it is bound (book format) or not (unbound Manuscript).
There is a weight limit of 70 lbs.

That would be one hell of a thesis...

Reminds me of this line from a favorite book....

"On the other hand, there were proper ways of entering a library. He waddled over to the shelves and selected Humptulip's seminal work How to Kille Insects. All 2,000 pages of it."
Terry Pratchett, Men at Arms
