What kind of cookies are you shipping?

For drop cookies (chocolate chip, peanut butter, etc..) I have seen some people stack them in pringles cans (works great!) or in tupperware/glad containers and then put in a box with bubble wrap or peanuts around them.

When I ship decorated sugar cookies I individually wrap each one in a bag. On the bottom of the box I put a layer of peanuts then a layer of bubble wrap. Start layering in the cookies and I use bubble wrap between each single layer of cookies. Make sure to leave at least 1" around the side of the box to add in some more packing peanuts.

I haven't had one break yet shipping this way. I have only shipped by USPS, but i've only shipped within the US. If you're looking at shipping over seas I know that others have done it and have more info on the best way to do that.

I ship decorated cookies all the time through USPS. I've never used FedEx or UPS.

Here are some threads about shipping cookies with lots of helpful information...

I just shipped some sugar cookies. I probably over-did it, but none of them broke! I put each of them in a little bag and tied with a ribbon, then wrapped them individually in bubble wrap, doubling it over on the top. Then I stacked the cookies sideways in the box, putting bubble wrap around any extra areas, and kept shaking the box til the cookies didnt budge. I also used USPS.
