Question How do you ship a 12x12 Layout?

I need some extra $$ and want to create 12x12 layouts to sell on Ebay or Craigslist. Does anyone know how to ship a 12x12 layout or what's the cheapest way?

Thanks,
Maria

They're not an easy thing to ship cheaply.

When I ship 12x12 paper, I like to use calendar mailers. (I usually get them on clearance after christmas when they are like 25 cents each. Otherwise, they are about $1-2 once the calendar stores hit the mall.) I believe you can send them first class parcel rates in the calendar envelopes... that'd work okay if your layouts are pretty flat.

Otherwise, for free packing, you've got priority mail boxes, but that's not going to be cheap postage wise, but it's probably safest for something bulky.

In either case, I'd probably put them in a page protector or large ziploc to avoid getting wet...

Thanks Emily, what kind of stores do I find calendar mailers? Walmart? I tried to look them up online, but didn't find any that are larger enough.

I usually don't find them until the calendar stores pop up at the mall for the holidays... although that seems earlier and earlier every year, so maybe soon. They're usually right at the register stand.

You might find them at an office supply store, I suppose. And I think my Barnes and Noble had calendars already so they might have some of the wraps, too.

Let's see...

Here's an example, with the caveat that I have never heard of or used calendars.com until I went looking for an example for you.

Celebrate Wrapper | Christmas Calendar Wrappers | CALENDARS.COM

I tried to find something suitable at uline.com but you probably aren't interested in buying 50 or 100 of some wrapper at a time...

I don't have a suggestion for mailers but I often use freezer paper (doubled in length needed so the paper part is on both sides when wrapped. I don't want the coated part touching the artwork but it's hard to adhere a label or even tape for wrapping the work to the non-paper side.). The coated side offers moisture protection with virtually no additional bulk.

HTH and ...

Happy Crafting!

Pretty cool... I didn't even know these existed!
