Definitely a good tutorial! \(thumbs u


Ok hopefully all who don't know how to pack a book have read and fully understand that tutorial. Good job! I pack my books almost the same with a few variations.


You mean with better books inside the box lol

For everything together, I would make a box about the size of the slabs, put the padded&wrapped raw books in it along with blocking (cardboard cut to fit the empty ends of that box after the raw books were in it) and pack that up with the slabs in one box. Maybe even have that in the middle of the ten slabs.

Hey Boozad...

Seriously, I'd probably split 5 slabs and 5 raw into two different packages. The raw in a cardboard sandwich, the slabs wrapped in bubble wrap and the cardboard sandwich taped to the outside of the bubble wrapped slabs.

Surround the lot in peanuts (preferably) or bubble wrap. It's amazing how well-handled 99% of the packages are handled that I've received form over the pond.

If boardies take the time to pack this well; why the deuce do I pay CGC to throw some bubble wrap in with my slabs? I'm not pulling in nearly as much as they are, yet I make sure my stuff is semi-bullet proof when i ship? rantrant

That's really helpful but if you're selling like 2-3 comics, maybe you can just put the comics with the carton in a flat rate priority envelope from USPS given that you can afford $5 for shipping lol.

I was pretty surprised after receiving my first box of submissions. I was even lucky enough to receive a broken slab on the first book out of the box. Their packaging is decent, but doesn't really seem on par with the packaging requirements/suggestions to be shipped to them. A little extra protection on the bottom of their boxes would go a long way, IMO. 2c

I used to bubble, then put some cardboard pieces on the ends/corners to help out this stabilizing the slab. The pack around with newpaper, nice and tight to help prevent slipping. Still there is also a chance your carrier goes totally postal and decides your package, is meant for soccer practice.

I think that life's too short for this. I want back my ignorance and bliss. I think I've had enough of this. Blow me... one last kiss.

You can tell the truth or you can lie. You can say I left you or I died. Say I'm in the Himalayas on some spiritual quest and could spend years lookin' for the light. Say I'm in the witness program with the F.B.I. Say a U.F.O. abducted me from home. Well, you can say what you chose, but I tell you the truth. You can say for sure I'm gone.
