How to Package Your Cards

DON’T LET THIS HAPPEN TO YOU
A couple of weeks ago a box of cards came in damaged– corners crushed after the box had a rough time of it in the mail. It was unfortunate and troubling to report the damage to the seller. We’d like to tell everyone: Take time to pack your cards so they will be well-protected in the mail.

ENSURE SAFETY & COST EFFECTIVENESS
Pack the cards in a box of an appropriate size. The cards don’t necessarily need to be sleeved, but snug the cards up with foam or peanuts. If you use newspaper as stuffing, then the cards should be sleeved.
Then place your box of cards in a larger box, (box-in-a-box). Fill with padding (again– foam, peanuts, or newspaper) to secure it so that nothing moves or shifts when you hold it closed and shake it. Even when sending in small batches, use a secondary outer box or thick outer envelope with appropriate padding for security.
