how would you mail these

I have 3 ME bedweter pants to mail out. They are pretty heavy. Would you go with a flat rate box? If I do it that way I am going to spend a third of what I sold them for in mailing. I would love some suggestions.

I usually use a padded FRE when something is over 13 oz but can be squished to fit in one of those. The only problem is they are usually not available at the PO (though if you live near a bigger one you might find them there) and have to be ordered online (they are free).

I just weighed one of them and it was 8.1 oz so all three would be 1 1/2 lbs.

If I'm not sure about what would be cheapest, I just take it to the post office and ask them. Be sure you get the zip of the person it's being mailed to, they'll need that. You can also go on usps.com and enter you parameters and it will tell you how much. I've saved money in the past by not going with a FRB.

Don't forget your packaging materials will add to the weight if you aren't doing a FRB.

I would use a Polymailer bag to mail them if it were me. Then use Paypal to print the lable.

I wish there was a way to make that thread grab attention better, so people wouldn't post the same question daily... but I suppose with people like you to point them in the right direction, it's all good..
