tight squeeze. Alot of those "bubble " flat rate mailers rip open on the open end if you dont reinforce the "non-bubble" part of the flap.

heres direct link these are great but you gotta order online most post offices dont have
https://shop.usps.com/webapp/wcs/sto...WT.ac=10007166

in my past uses 2 330 ct boxes was to much for them but its the best value in shipping u can fit alot in for 4.75(if u use paypal shipping) and the envelopes themselves are worth a buck .. takes about a week to get after u order them

I shipped most of a 5 case player break with this method with no problem at all. If they fit to tight for your liking, you can go with a smaller count box. I did rip one envelope when putting the boxes inside but I didn't hear of any problems from the people who received them.

I received a ripped USPS bubble mailer that was retapped by the USPS. I did not complain to the seller. So no complaints doesnt mean it doesn rip. Just letting you know and how i know.

I do use the USPS bubble mailers, but i tape the ends so they dont rip like i seen it rip.

Just letting you all know.

Damn, who wouldn't tape those? I even tape the flaps on regular old bubble mailers.

I had no idea there were 330ct boxes. Been using 400ct and stuffing wrappers at the ends.

Not only tapping them shut, Tapping both ends and the WHOLE side, like 4 inches width of tape. They rip easy.

Remember, i am just letting you guys know how i received ripped USPS mailers that was retapped by the USPS so the contents(boxes) wouldnt fall out.

I DID NOT Complain to the seller, sellers cannot control the USPS handling . But just because a seller doesnt get a complaint doesnt mean it doesnt happen.

PS: A COMPLAINT means it is too late. The bad part happened already.

It will fit in a USPS medium flat rate box, with quite a bit of extra space to spare (for padding), for just under $11. I use this when shipping larger volumes of cards (3x 550 cts), but I will also use it for a single 550 if the cards are nicer and I want them to be safely packaged.

Cool, I was going to make a post about those flat rate bubble mailers to see if anyone was sending boxed cards that way. Glad to hear those have been working out.

I drive them on my Huffy and hand deliver them to the buyer. They often offer me lemondaide and cookies. Customer service goes a long way to building lasting relationships (and restraining orders).
