Default Shipment jammed mailbox card board t mailer.

Great I ordered two day men number 1. I looked at tracking stated delivered and normally mailer envelopes delivered on front porch nothing there and when I looked mailbox and mailer envelope was forcefully put inside mailbox and I had trouble taking it out as well. I hope dreamland replaces shipment. But I doubt it since most online stores are sold out

Why are these not standard for online dealers?

How are those with shipping one issue? Because my current shipping is 19 cents, but it requires me cutting cardboard. This would be 6 cents more expensive, but make up for it in time.

I ship all my books in those. It ends up costing more then 2 pieces of cardboard would but i never ever have to worry about a return due to USPS bending or destroying the book. Takes me 3 sec to get a book ready to ship.

You can also by precut cardboard if you would rather go that route.

I buy those comic mailers from Comic Alliance and they cost me roughly 1.37 each. They work great for single books, or lots up to 12 books. I often then put that inside a priority box with some padding.. A box at Walmart is $1.79, but some some modern comics, I use two pieces of STURDY cardboard, larger than the book itself, secure the comic in another silver age bag taped to the cardboard, then sandwiched between the two, then shipped in a large envelope with "Don't F with this" written all over it. - Actually just bought a stamp that says "DO NOT BEND" and stamp the envelop on both sides. I also use a bit of flair while stamping it.



15 pieces of flair is what I wear while stamping. That's why my customers love them. It's all about the flair.

The positives outweigh the negatives, in my opinion.

I've dealt with both cardboard and t-boxes, as both a buyer and a seller, and I think the t-boxes are a tad safer, or they feel that way at least. I guess for a single issue it may not be that drastic of a difference though.

Another big factor is that they look way more professional/fancy than cut out cardboard, if you are concerned with that...and I think everyone should be more or less. Which goes along with the following :

Hahaha...that reminds me, I really want to get my Beavis and Butthead #1's signed by that man.

Since I dont do huge volume, I use these plus a light sandwich of cardboard inside. Might be overkill, but you would be surprised how happy folks are to see the care i put into protecting their books.

however, once I run out of those mailers, I am switching to boxes. Folding those things gets annoying

Only 15 pieces? It's up to you whether or not you just want to do the bare minimum, but people can get comics anywhere. They come to Indy for the atmosphere and the attitude. If you want to wear the bare minimum that's fine, but some people choose to wear more while stamping and we encourage that. You do want to express yourself don't you?
