Packaging tutorial

Card orders need to be packed in the best possible way to ensure that they arrive intact to the buyer. This is your responsibility as a seller. The following recommendations intend to provide guidance to you, though you might choose to pack them in other ways that equally protect the cards so they’re sent in fine conditions.

Small orders: if you’re sending up to 16 cards

Step 1: How to protect the cards

Protect the cards by putting them into sleeves. Please put up to 4 cards per sleeve. Then ensure that the cards can’t fall off the sleeve by covering the open side of the sleeve with a small piece of paper (in a way that the tape does not touch the cards). Fix the paper to the sleeve with adhesive tape.

Step 2: How to put the cards into an envelope

If you’re using a regular letter envelope (i.e. a Manilla envelope), please use a rigid surface, such as a thin piece of paperboard, and attach the sleeves to it using adhesive tape (in a way that the tape does not touch the cards).

If you’re using a padded envelope, you can simply put the sleeves in it. (Please pay attention to the shipping method selected by the buyer, as Royal Mail only sends padded envelopes as large letters).

Medium orders: if you’re sending between 17 and 64 cards

Divide the cards into 4 piles and wrap them in a piece of paper. Then put them in a padded envelope.

Large orders: if you’re sending 65+ cards

Wrap the cards in a piece of paper. Place it in the parcel box and fill the empty space with paper to avoid that the cards move.
