Packing Your Items

Packing your merchandise is a lot of work. Let's look at what's involved in packing an item so that it arrives at its destination intact—but doesn't cost you an arm and a leg to get there.

Picking the Right Shipping Container

It's important to choose the right type of shipping container for a particular item. First, you have to decide whether to use a box or an envelope. If you have a very large item to ship, the choice is easy. But what if you have something smaller and flatter, such as a baseball card or a coin? Your choice should be determined by the fragility of your item. If the item can bend or break, choose a box; if not, an envelope is probably a safe choice.
