The Classic : Double Box Do it Yourself Method

Put this box in a second larger box. 18" x 18" size will do Use filler on all sides in such a way that the inner box does not directly touch the outer box. This method will protect your recordings from shocks and punctures. Write on all sides of the package " FRAGILE Musical Recordings DO NOT DROP" Enclose an itemized list of the recording.
Most Office Supply stores have stock of various size boxes, bubble wrap and popcorn materials. A good packing material is to do up a batch of popcorn to use as a filler. It's inexpensive and environment friendly.
