    Ship items safely using wholesale packaging. Boxes and envelopes are prone to damage from steel machinery or mishandling. Items are damaged by sudden movement when they're tossed into bags or crates during sorting. The best way to protect your gifts and other goods is by making sure items are securely wrapped before going into cardboard boxes, tubes, or envelopes. Keep a supply of these postal necessities on hand for your mailing needs.

    Mailing food gifts, handmade goods, and exports requires careful packaging. Food items should be wrapped in a protective plastic like shrink wrap or cellophane bags. If the item is damaged during delivery, it won't leak and damage other items in the box.

    Corrugated cardboard boxes are recommended shipping containers. The durable material stands up to handling. Most post office locations will not accept boxes with logos or advertising, such as beer or food containers. It's best to start with a new box that has not endured the rigors of shipping.

    Use cushioning – plastic bubble wrap, foam peanuts, or crumpled newspaper – to protect items. For smaller items, waterproof kraft envelopes with the bubble wrap lining are great choices. Tape all edges and seams of a box or envelope. Heavy-duty tape protects against water damage and keeps edges from splitting. Leave an open area for the postmark and postage label or stamps.

    If you ship frequently, materials can be cheap. You don't have to spend a lot to mail items safely. Wholesale supplies save money. Buying storage and mailing items in bulk reduces a budget.
