Sending Posters Through The Post
Individuals send a wide variety of items by post every day, from fragile glassware to cuddly toys and even large furniture items. However, whatever item you wish to send, you’ll always want the peace of mind that it will arrive at its intended destination in the condition you sent it.
Today, Eclipse Distribution Solutions Ltd discusses the best way to package and send posters through the post.
Before you begin carefully packaging your item, you should have the following items to hand: scissors, bubble wrap, packaging peanuts, craft paper and firm cardboard shipping tube.
Not wrapping items correctly is a common mistake that can cause a variety of issues. Be sure to invest in the sturdiest shipping tube you can, complete with plastic stoppers at either end.
Packaging Your Items
To begin, secure the plastic stopper of the mailing tube at one end with shipping tape. Now place a few packaging peanuts at the bottom of the tube, ensuring that once your poster is inside, the edges will not be creased.
Next, lay your sheet of craft paper on a flat surface, it should be noted that the craft paper must be slightly bigger than the poster. Now you will want to lay your poster on top of the craft paper and begin slowly rolling up both sheets until you end up with a tube. It may be tempting to use a rubber band or piece of tape to secure your tube at this stage, but this often causes creases or small tears in the paper, so it is best to leave your tube unsecured.
Place your poster inside the shipping tube, allowing it to unravel as necessary to fit the size of the tube.
Now all that is left to do is to secure your shipping tube at the other end with a plastic stopper and shipping tape.
