Please take to ebay Gav. According to some sellers it's ok to put a comic in an envelope and nothing else.

Great stuff Boozad, it should be a sticky, question where can I find cheap cardboard as I am always running out?


Since you live in the states MR COMICBOOK, go to usps com and order some priority mail boxes for cardboard. You can order up to 500 at one time, and they are FREE. No-cost shipping, too. I accidentally ordered some FPO boxes, and I use those for cardboard sandwiches.


Yep, you get an awesome service through USPS. Royal Mail pails in comparison.


Using the Priority Mail boxes for other purposes (or just for the cardboard) will eventually increase the price for the rest of us. They're already spending additional money printing on the inside of the boxes which I'm sure they will pass on to the customer.

(I realize this practice also precludes re-using OLD priority boxes... but using NEW boxes for cardboard sandwiches is really theft.)

I buy 200lb cardboard from Uline. It costs money, but I'm assuming the person I send it to reuses it and sends it to someone else in turn. I also recycle old boxes and large cardboard computer boxes for these purposes.





Great point made here by Shin!

I cut up all the boxes I receive, and save all the packing material. I also buy diapers for my son from costco and that box nets me 4 oversized pieces for mailers. And any other boxes I can chop up.

Taking the new boxes from usps to cut up for shipping is going to catch up to all of us as shin said. The boxes are "free" but they are not really free. In shipping and stamp costs, we pay for everything.

And the bags you receive from CGC for your slabs work great for bundling books before sandwiching between the cardboard. I use the Hotflips resealable bags for slabs, and just save the cgc ones for shipping raw books. \(thumbs u

Like $5.00 ? They may be $7.00, but I think they were 5.

I can find out when they are setting up locally and grab you some. I need to start hitting shows to find a dealer to buy my old stock anyways. \(thumbs u

I wanted to mention I know several people who have been "caught" using Priorty mail cardboard (even recycled ones not just cutting up new) USPS catches an inside out box or a cardboard box custom made from USPS box they will tack a priorty mail sticker on it and pass the cost on to the customer as postage due. (I've only heard of it a few times and once it was a box recycled) but it does happen.

As the 21st century began, human evolution was at a turning point. Natural selection, the process by which the strongest, the smartest, the fastest, reproduced in greater numbers than the rest, a process which had once favored the noblest traits of man, now began to favor different traits. Most science fiction of the day predicted a future that was more civilized and more intelligent. But as time went on, things seemed to be heading in the opposite direction. A dumbing down. How did this happen? Evolution does not necessarily reward intelligence. With no natural predators to thin the herd, it began to simply reward those who reproduced the most, and left the intelligent to become an endangered species.
