How do you package for shipping?

How do you package and ship your cloth dipes you sold to another member?

I plan on wrapping it in tissue paper, enclosing it in a ziploc so it doesn't get wet, and then putting it in a paper mailer of some sort. I have no idea yet what type of shipping service I'll use to send it out.

Do you think that's appropriate, or is there a better way? I'm really worried that my new dipe will get wet or damaged in the mail.

I think that would be fine. It is nice that you would take such care to ship diapers! I just shove mine in a polymailer and use USPS to ship. It is the cheapest. With a polymailer, you don't have to worry about the diaper getting wet either.

I usually buy them on Amazon. They come in varying sizes and are super cheap.

I put in plastic grocery print off something with address for inside & wrap in brown grocery bag or paper or if I have something to use from something I have gotten stuff fits in. Lots of tape........ I ship lowest cost too....
