How to Ship Comics Safely
It's Metafilter's 20th anniversary! To celebrate, scan some cats or help fund Mefi! Assuming I am staying in the United States, and want the cheapest shipping that will arrive intact, how would I best want to send comics in batches of, let's say, 4, 8, 15, and 30? Thanks in advance. I know I should be able to figure this out, but the post offices are closed, I apparently don't have an accurate scale, and I don't even have one of the padded envelopes to see how many fit in. Intact as in readable, or as in collectible? None of the ones I am selling are fancy mint plastic sealed books, but they were read once and bagged and boarded, so they tend to be in pretty good shape for a casual buyer like I once was myself, I hope.
