I have had a request to post some of my figures. (from england to ireland) has anyone ever done this? whats the safest way, i dont want them to arrive smashed up!
Wrap them well in tissue paper, then bubble wrap and use packaging foam things to cusion in the box, make sure they can not move around. They should get there safe and sound.
Also make sure the customer accepts that if they are damaged, that's bad luck. Maybe worth checking out what the package is insured for - i forget what the royal mail will cover up to, and since it is fragile, they might not cover at all.
Maybe with making from gumpaste for the extra strength?
Thank you for the replys. i will check what the royal mail say and inform the customer that i will do everything that i can to ensure they arrive safetly. however if they arrive damaged i cannot issue a refund and she will have to be prepared that there may be difficultys beyond my controll
