Default cardboard

So I also asked in the cgc forum but i figure id ask here too.


Anyways I find myself in need of cardboard, for comic shipping in general.
When i first started selling, I cut up boxes from work and used them but as I grew I quickly found
myself shipping 50-100 comics per month. The boxes from work arent enough any more.

So my question to you is, where can I get cardboard. If I have to buy it, Id rather be it flat rather than in a box shape. Less cutting that way. The only flat i have seen so far is currogated and im not sure that will meet my needs. Anyways, just curious if someone could point me in the right direction.

Your local grocery/department store. Just after stocking.

Liquor stores are a great place to get cardboard. Find out when they stock the shelves as they literally throw away boxes upon boxes of good cardboard that can be cut up and used.

Pfft
get your goods while they are available

Order a few cases of large flat rate boxes from usps.com
It's free, no shipping charges.

I use an exacto and the boxes to tailormake boxes and padding for books I ship out.
I use the USPS to ship so I have no issue using their supplies to do this.
