    I had one come like a literal ball. I wish I took a picture of it, because it was rather amazing the P.O. actually let that through.

    I buy poly (no bubbles)bags on ebay and won't go over 1st (13 oz) class for a long time. I have the backdoor link where you can print out 1st class with a tracking # if anyone needs it.

    Pack em down and stuff em tight. If it will close and not burst seams, it goes.
    TRUTH is seldom appreciated, unless you happen to agree with it. When you don't agree, you just call it rude.

    If shipping form your home and printing your labels either through pay pal or USPS, you can request pick up, and the carrier will come to your home to pick up your parcels. I used to do that all the time when I sold fabric, and sold on ebay. You can stuff padded flat rate poly mailers as full as you can get them. They will hold up to about 8 yds of fabric.

    If you haven't done so, set up an account on usps.com. You can calculate postage, print prepaid labels and even request a pickup from your carrier. Also, the price is a little better on most items.
