    I like the way that West Coast Imaging ships prints. They put each print in a plastic sleeve with an archival interleaving sheet over the face of the print inside the sleeve. The sleeve is taped to an oversized sheet of corrugated cardboard, and then there is another sheet of corrugated behind that, and two on top, for a total of four sheets (if they are returning disks, transparencies or negs, they go between the two top sheets), and the whole package is enclosed in a cardboard box cut to fit.

    For small prints, I think 4 sheets of corrugated inside a corrugated box is probably overkill, so I tend to use two sheets inside a box or envelope, with the print (mounted or unmounted) in a sleeve.

    I found last time that the folks who shipped prints in any type of flat configuration always ended up with creases.(Esp. if you write "do not bend" on the outside- that's as good as bending it yourself!)

    The one non-bent print I received was in a BOX.

    Just an observation...

    Mine were not boxes, but I doubt that anyone could have bent my mailings very easily. I use depending on the thickness of the cardboard 2 to 3 oversized sheets of cardboard that I have sandwiched around the print, then duct tape the edges all the way around.

    This is what I do too. I haven't had anyone tell me their prints arrived damaged.

    I've also heard that you can cut a couple of pieces of 1/8" paneling slightly oversized. It's light and won't bend.

    What about mailing tubes? The ones that are 5-8 cm (2-3 inches) dia. and made from cardboard. I remember seeing a lady in my old town receive them occasionally.

    I sent mine dry mounted onto archival board with a second board that could be cut if they wished to.

    opps!

    I sent my prints out, but it seems I forgot to put my info sheet in with them :o
    Opps sorry! I will "PM" the group I'm in later tonight. Leon already got his (a record time for Canada Post) so the others should get theirs shortly as well.
    Even Mr. Moore who is across the pond in a little place called Kent.
