I've been scouring over Google and such for good, cheap 7" EP mailers for the past while and it's always expensive to buy from the US due to shipping. BagsUnlimited is out of the question, as it would cost well over $55 total for only 10 of them. I'm looking to buy at least 10 of those mailers. Can anyone give me a hand to go buy those?

Try Uline.com. 7"s are really easy to mail using ordinary boxes though.

Yeah, I just cut pieces of cardboard and use a manila envelope, tightly folded around the record. If you're talking about mailing 1 or 2 records per parcel that's far cheaper than buying mailers. I've never had a single complaint (pun intended).

Uline is a good source too if you need tons of them, or plan to mail larger parcels.

Here's the best thing to do:

1. Find a box that's slightly bigger. Like those boxes that Amazon.com uses to send you books.

2. Wrap the 7" in poly bag and wrap with cardboard so it doesn't bend.

3. Place cardboard-ed 7" into box.

4. Secure in place with tape if the box is significantly bigger.

5. Stuff empty space with news paper or styro-peanuts.

6. Tape up, address, and send.

This method works for multiple 7"s as well. It's much better than using pre-fab 7" mailers because it protects the corners.

Just remember Buffer zone is the most import thing about packing records.

Stating the obvious here - but seriously, NO ONE packs shit like NWN. I have been buying from you since 2001 or 2002 and not once have I received something even remotely damaged in the slightest possible way.

Learn maggots, learn. Cool
