Hey everyone, just about out of bubble mailers. Just wondering what size would be best to get, and if anyone knows anywhere better than ebay to buy them?

I guess it all depends how much stuff you ship. The 5x9 is a safe bet. I haven't bought any in a while. I reuse the decent ones from trades.
Also how do you ship, do you go to the post office or print postage online? If you do it online you have to make sure you have mailers big enough to fit the label well, if you do it at the PO then you could almost cut a 5x9 in half because it just has to have the address and room for their small postage label. I do that all the time when sending to Canada. I'll make custom sized mailer just to fit the cards and enough room for forms on it. Cuts the weight sometimes.
I know I've seen bubble mailers in the $ store 2 for a buck, also they have 8 packs of the regular 5x9 envelopes, and you can buy a roll of bubble wrap for $1. Wrapping the cards in some bubble wrap and into a regular 5x9 envelope is basically the same.

For 1-3 thick cards these work. I personally buy these from ebay and 1 25x case of 6x9s from sams club just in case I need to ship bigger lots.

For less then .08 a pop I don't think there is a better deal, plus you won't have to buy any for a very long time.
