Best bubble mailers for shipping 1 token 3 weeks 5 days ago #1

Hello all,

When shipping a small number of tokens, say 1-3... What do you ship them in? 6x10 bubble mailers at the post office are total overkill....

Personally I use sturdy cardboard photo mailers.

Speaking as the person who receives all your transmute packages, bubble mailers are a sub-optimal choice. Standard envelopes are a HORRIBLE choice! Use something that is stiff and sturdy, not soft and flimsy. Tokens are quite hardy*. The real danger is that the mailer will rip open and your token(s) will fall out.

*Please note, I did not say invincible. Yes, we all know someone who chipped a token or whatever. That's an anomaly.
Have you looked it up in the TDb ?

I use this size from Amazon, getting whatever is cheapest per envelope and ships with Prime.

I've shipped hundreds of 1-20 token orders in these and never once had a problem. I don't even add extra tape to the sides.

this is what i use and have similar experience as Matt in which I have yet to have a problem. I do add an extra piece of scotch heavy duty tape where the adhesive seal is at.

I'm pretty confident that at almost 10k packages to date I've mailed more shipments of tokens than anybody else except Jeff, so I consider these to be tried and true:

www.uline.com/Product/Detail/S-2219/Stay-Flat-Mailers/Tab-Locking-Kraft-StayFlats-1-6-x-8

Challenge is it's nearly $50 for 100 of these after shipping. I've considered offering some at no charge as a perk for my consignment sellers, or even selling them directly so you can add them to other orders.

I have seen too many failures with bubble mailers that I won't use them.
