I was about to get ahold of Leonard Nimoy and see if they would relaunch the t.v. documentary " IN SEARCH OF".

I pack with bubble envelopes (had one seller on ebay ship to me in a manilla envelope, with just bags on the books, eek!) and reuse the cardboards I get from other sellers. Always pretty much boarded and bagged.

Nothing worse than raw books being sent through any mail system without at least some padding and protection. Over the years, have received some books ruined by poor packing.

I have no registry points, so the only way to exercise my geek superiority is by being a jerk.

It varies by weight and destination - go to USPS.com after you've made a sale, and you can figure it out exactly.

As you ship elsewhere a few times, you'll learn the ropes. Most international stuff goes to the frostbacks up in Canada. You can still box ship 1-2 books there for about $5-6, and I just box shipped 7 books with backing boards there yesterday for $9. Everywhere else is likely to be way expensive. I'll frequently tell buyers that I'll box the books up, then give them a shipping quote. International buyers usually know what typical postage costs will be, and are not surprised.

One option I give to reduce shipping costs is to put two books per bag and board. Backing boards weigh a bunch, and cost to ship.

God bless the buyers of Canada - I think I ship more books there than to the USA lol

That's because it's too treacherous to venture outside our igloos 350 days of the year!


But really, it's just because there isn't much selection up here. I live in a city of 500k, we have two stores that sell comics...


One is actually decent, but only sells new releases, once they're gone they're gone, they don't deal in anything older.

The other is 1/3 comics, the rest dungeons and dragons, MTG, and those little war hammer guys. Again, they only deal with new stuff...


I'd say 90% of my collection is from the states \:\(

Once in a while I'll find another Canadian seller online or on eBay, but it's fairly rare.
