Default Packaging question.

I want to start selling my bows. I have several made already and
people are wanting to buy them, the only problem is that I dont
know how to package them. I make the sculpture clips. so they are kinda small.

What size box would I need?
What do I put in the box so the clip doesnt get damaged?
If adding more than one clip, how do I package it?
Do I add anything else with the clips in the box?

Any kind of advise would be appreciated. Thank you.

I use boxes for most of my sculptures 4x4x6 or something like that. packaged on a card and with tissue or some paper to keep it from rattling around.

Where do you get your boxes from?
How much does shipping cost?

I dont have any cards to put the clips on, should I though?

I order my boxes from USPS. They have tons of sizes that are free & they ship them to you for free! They have different options but I ordered the priority mail boxes BUT not the flat rate boxes! hTh!

I use Uline, super cheap.

I get priority boxes from USPS too for those who chose to pay extra for priority mailing, but by using the 4x4x4 or the 6x6x2 or 6x6x4, postage is much less and can ship first class parcel, getting to your customer just as quickly.

If you are just starting out and don't have the money to spend on boxes right away, you can ask at the grocery store or drugstore if they have any smaller boxes you can take off their hands.
