Packaging Safety Tips!
Please take a few more minutes to make sure the cards you are sending are packaged safely and have the best chance to be mailed from you to your trade partner safely.
Bubble Envelopes: Please use Bubble Envelopes when shipping he and mailing anything through the mail. White Envelopes will get you a neutral from most traders, they just don't secure the cards enough. Envelopes go through mail processors and often damage cards, bubble mailers do not. Bubble Mailers are not very expensive, you can go to walmart and buy them for .50 cents a piece or buy them in bulk and get 25 or go crazy and buy a box of 100 for $20...not much at all to prevent damaging your fellow traders on cards. After all...do as you wish to be treated...
Toploaders and Cases: Please Make sure all cards are securely placed in a Toploader or some sort of protective case, and soft sleeve. Ive heard of some cards being shipped in sleeves alone, and the card was damaged...SOFT SLEEVES ALONE ARE NOT PROTECTION!! Also try and tape the top of toploaders when sending cards in them, cards tend to move around in the mail that way you prevent a damaged delivery. This is not as important if you secure the toploaders with Pack Fillers, which I recommend...but taping the top is always an extra step of safety.
Use Delivery Confirmation: Try and use DC when mailing your trades unless its a low end trade and you have established a good trading status with the person you are trading. This way if the other party says they didn't receive you have proof you sent, it costs only .55 cents, well worth the money!
