If the books are expensive just pay a couple extra bucks and use a regular box or double box within a flate rate box.


For single slabs, I use a USPS 1092 box within a 1095 box. For two slabs, I put the 1092 inside a Medium flat rate box. Great protection and free from the USPS!

I use this bubble wrap that I get from work for free (they used to just throw it away). On a weekend once a few years back, we ran a strip of it over with our largest forklift. It didn't pop. We had to drive the forklift up an incline and have it come down on the bubble wrap to pop it. One of the guys tried to jump on it, but fell on his butt because it wouldn't pop. So now they give it to me instead of throwing it away and I use it to pack Priority Mail boxes for slabbed and raw comics. Great stuff. I've never seen anything quite like it for sale in stores. I've had reports from people I sold to (on eBay) about their boxes being quite mangled but the contents still being perfectly fine with none of the bubbles popped.

Never really had a problem with FedEx BUT this box arrived today... The damaged side was wet, as if it fell in water and stayed there awhile. Someone taped it up and sent it on its way. The slab fortunately was not damaged because it was wrapped in bubble wrap and put inside a FedEx bubble mailer. \:\) Note the "Handle With Care - Fragile" sticker. Yeah... right.

I ship slabs like this.

Double poly bagged
Double small bubble wrapped
Double large bubble wrapped
Planked with rigid cardboard front and back
Large bubble wrapped again
Boxed
Boxed again

Yet to have a cracked slab complaint or any other.

I ship raws to CGC and customers like this

Bag/Board
Magazine bag 8 in a bag and carefully pull bag tight and tape.
Double small bubble wrapped
Double large bubble wrapped
CGC inbound go double boxed
Customers under $50 go regular boxed

10000 plus books shipped with nothing but rav reviews /knock on wood

YMMV
