Hi Sam

 

Have you ever considered send them rolled in a tube. I send my decals that way and it works well without creasing.

Roll the sheets on the outside of a cardboard tube, with plain paper on the tube and then on top of the full sheets, then a few layers of bubble wrap, then a few layers of brown paper.

 

If you put the sheets inside the tube then the recipient might damage them trying to get the sheets out.

 

Also pack the inside of the tube with a suitable material so the PO don't crush the tube.

 

I have sent a good few items like this with no complaints......I have a batch of full stamp sheets to send off tomorrow.

Al are you not afraid our "competent" postal workers will puncher the stamps,maybe a good Idea to add the whole thing in another bigger tube?

 

P.S Does anyone have a full sheet of the 1982 20c building series?

Hi Samantha,

Some stationery shops sell them, but I use the empty cling film cardboard tubes.......but the bought out ones can be very flimsy!

Oh right, cling film/foil tubes etc. Thank you, now eventually I can get down to listing these items.
