I trade Hard Rock Cafe pins with collectors all over the world. I have received MANY bubble envelopes with a CONVENIENT tear along the corner or edge and the pin that was once inside GONE. The gal that delivers our PO BOX mail said when sending a package thru the postal system, she recommends tape around the edges so that any gap left is not big enough for the enclosed item to fall out of any "accidental packaging failures". Nice, huh? Now I tape my pins to something bigger (like a retired swap card if it's going to a trader I know!), put it in the padded envy and run a cross of tape so that the middle of each side has a tape reinforcement. If a corner gets torn away, there is no way for the pin to "accidentally fall out"......
