Default How to ship minis question

So just wanted to see if there is a better way of shipping a large amount of minis that anyone can share. I have done it (small amounts), but I haven't really shipped a quantity of them (over 300) before so I thought I would ask since there isn't really any readily made cases out there to specifically fit a large amount of mini cards.

Put groups of them in team bags, then place them like you would full size cards in a 300 or 400 ct. box or something. Then you can ship that in a USPS Priority Mail Flat Rate Bubble Mailer for $4.95!

and they don't get damaged in team bags? I'm more concerned with getting them there without damage than anything else.

What ever you do, don't cover them in tape.... one piece of tape can easily do what 6 will....

What I do, is put about 20 minis or so in a penny sleeve. Then fold the sleeve once from the top, and once from the side. You can then tape it closed. This will keep them from shifting around. Afterwards, I do the same as Tyler.

Put them in a team set bag "SIDEWAYS", then roll it like a joint. Then put them in a bubble mailer and place the bubble mailer in a 400ct box. You should have nothing to worry about.

You talking about the Flora cards? The seeds are stuck to the cards. The stems show up when it starts growing!

??Wonder if they have a "Flora of the World" Mary Jane card??
