Below is How Your Book will be packed

You may click on any image to open this gallery to see larger images. My packing process from left to right, top to bottom is:

1 – I have new cardboard flats (two sizes). Here I am packing a softcover, first inserting it in a plastic bag. Note the smaller piece of cardboard to provide rigidity to the softcover book, not needed with a hardcover book.

2 – I attach a softcover to the smaller cardboard for rigidity while forming the cardboard around the book in the next steps. This is not necessary for a hardcover book which is already rigid.

3 – Placing a softcover with the cardboard backing up I fold one side of the cardboard over to the edge.

4 – The other side of the cardboard is then folded in forming a rigid sleeve around the book.

5 – Using a commercial floor stapler I put at least two staples at each end sealing the container.

6 – The last image shows the completed shipment with adhesive mailing label. To be even safer, I tape the label down, and rubber stamp my return address on the cardboard.

I have been packing this way since the late 1990s. A customer of mine owned The Danbury Box Company, and developed this method of packing for Hamilton Books. John encouraged me to do the same, and I am pleased that I did follow his advice.
