    PaulBeer Trading: question, do you think that blue print roll mailers would work well to ship beer??  They have sturdy cardboard walls, are already tubular, all you'd really need to do is to put padding between the bottles and really secure the ends, but for cans it should...  more

      KajII I don't know maybe, might be worth a try. But I would think if they got banged by something(the wall is pretty thin) the bottles might break and I would hate to be the guy who got that package. I use the 1 price shipping boxes from USPS and wrap bottled w...  more

      kat try Total Wine, BevMo, or similar. they have awesome boxes that have the perfectly cut styrofoam in the bottom, then place the strofoam top on and voila. I've never had a bottle trade go bad!

      kat yep, they have all sizes. i usually buy the 6 slot boxes. I even bought a 12-btl one when i did a winery weekend event. they're usually against the wall where they have random crap so ask if you can't find 'em. bevmo seems to keep them on the top of th...  more

      KajII Sounds good and all but do you think the shipping is going to be more or less (I usually just make the weight limit) than USPS 1 price box. Thats a great deal considering the weight!!.

      kat hmm, i don't really know...i always try to not think about shipping costs because i'm getting bottles in return that are semi-priceless since they aren't available in my state. here's some weights you can use to calculate costs if necessary... (these are...  more

      Mark The styrofoam insert is probably going to be too big for the large USPS flat rate box. That box is 12x12x5.5 and the inserts from uline which should be about the same size elsewhere are 14.5x14.5x4.5.
