Just a tip of the hat about Hot Flips, wether you're buying bags/boards or boxes from them, ordering off of their site is cheaper than buying the same item in their eBay store.

If they don't have a specific thing shown as in stock, or you'd rather order over the phone, just call them.

Charlie is a good dude.👍🤙

I hate styrofoam peanuts, so I will often put them in ziplock bags if I resort to using them.
I put multiple bagged/boarded comics in a magazine bag and tape the magazine bag to the cardboard. It adds an additional cushion for the comics to slide, without taking a hard impact should the box be thrown really hard onto concrete. I'd rather a bagged & boarded comic slide in a magazine bag that have the comic slide in it's own bag.

I tried re-using peanuts but I have stopped using them altogether. They are heavier than bubble wrap, are less flexible, and are more likely to result in a cracked case.

I try to save them to give to friends that still use them. I was very frustrated with My Comic Shop when they sent me so many of them with my books (but at least the books arrived safely).
