Default Question about shipping

Hey guys, quick question. I'm new to selling stuff on here and I recently put up a bunch of Bowman Platinum inserts for sale. Silly me, I thought I would be able to ship in a bubble mailer but I sold 55 cards to one person. What's the best way to ship that amount of cards?

I obviously want the cards to be protected but I also can't spend $20 shipping these because all of the cards went for $30 delivered.

How do you guys ship lots of around 50 cards?

Dan

You can fit them in a slightly bigger bubble mailer and it cost like $1 more.

buy a 300ct box, pack them in the middle with packing peanuts/bubble wrap/newpaper til they are nice and snug and wont move around. Should cost around $5-7 to ship it that way priority mail.

Do not do this haha (no offense). 55 cards isn't a lot of cards. You can fit them in a bubble mailer easy, may need a little bigger one, but it is easy. I shipped a lot of 60 cards for $3 with DC the other day

I just don't like shoving anymore than 10 cards in a bubble mailer. Makes the package awkward.

Put em in a team bag sandwiched between 2 top loaders. Tape it up and mail it in a bubble mailer....

Did you put each card in a penny sleeve? Any other protection in the envelope?

These 55 cards do seem pretty thick to me, I'd estimate 2-2.5 inches. I actually assumed it would be too thick for any envelope, but maybe not?

Yeppers a 6x9 or 6x10 should get the job done for ya. It will only cost you 2.15-2.32 through paypal with DC.

I never had a problem. Penny sleeves in team bags with cardboard on both sides for protection. Especially when I'm paying the shipping!

Get a bigger package. It makes it better. No need to spend an extra four bucks imo
