I love those. Always re-use them when I sell more than 3 books. Going to run out soon since I haven't ordered there in awhile. I'd like to know too!

Yeah I get boxes from uline that are perfect for shipping comics. As many as 15 bagged and boarded.

My cost is $24 per 50.

I have had bad experiences in the past with sellers who shipped comics between corrugated cardboard like that. Often it would lead to stress marks on the spine.

I don't think that's what leads to the stress marks...they were most likely there beforehand.

I hate it when seller's ship comics between 2 cardboard cutouts in a photo envelope. The corners always come in dented thus damaging the corner of the comic. It happened to me so many times. Mailer comic boxes are the way to go!

maybe whoever shipped it didnt know what he was doing. I always do a bend test myself. I guess it takes experience to know how much cardboard to use. I am doing my pre taxes for alternate income and just found I have shipped about 600 books this year. Only 2 have been damaged in shipping. I dont use corrugated cardboard though so i know nothing about shipping with it.

sounds like the seller doesn't know what they are doing. the book should never slide around between the cardboard and thus the corner of the comic should never come anywhere near the edges of the envelope.

I guess some people don't think about how they'd like to receive their own comics when they ship and package for others.

Here's something else you guys might like to pick up, less than $10 and it'll save you a lot of writing. I typically write DO NOT BEND on my mailers, front and back, but when you're doing it 100+ times a day, a stamp would be nice.

I just ordered one.

Stamps are a must IMO!

I used stickers, but price wise stamp are a money saver. Just make sure they are refillable!
