There are many different ways to package your order, but there are definitely some ways that are better than others.
Always use a sturdy box. We do not recommend using a shipping envelope, as they come open more easily in shipping and can't protect your originals as well as a box. When it comes to sealing the box, more tape is better than less. You really want to make sure everything stays inside during transit. Covering any gaps created by the flaps of the box with tape is a great way to ensure your package and contents arrive safely.
It is just as important to use good packing material as it is to use a sturdy package. In general, use soft items that will hold their shape easily and not disintegrate.
The following items make great packing material:
- Bubble Wrap
- Crumbled Paper
- Packing Foam
Try to avoid the following items. They can come apart during transit, and little bits and pieces can get in your tapes:
- Packing Peanuts
