A note about those flat rate boxes guys, they may not be the best bet if the package is...

1. Light (as in 2 lbs or less)
2. Is making a relatively short trip.

Check the weight/zone rates for your location and the one you're shipping to. If its under $10.95 ($14.95 for the large box), don't use a FR package.

Dont use a flat rate for the straps, just mail them the same as you would a disc...

I just shipped a standard bag, with 2 discs flattened as much as possible in a box. 10.98 to Canada from Texas....

I ended up getting them in a regular mailing box. Postage was $10.35, so with the money I saved by opting out of the flat rate I grabbed insurance and confirmation. Never shipped something this pricey before...usually just $10 discs.
