CD Mailers

CD Mailers

When you need to send your content on its merry way, making sure it arrives to its destination safe and sound is a priority. Ordinary CD packaging is perfect for presenting face to face, but in cases where you need to guarantee it will survive the hazards of shipping, you’ll need CD mailers. We carry high grade cardboard and bubble mailers perfectly suited for this endeavor. Both methods offer protection and ease of shipping for discs.

 

Tips for Mailing Discs

Costs

Costs are among the first concerns you may have when deciding to mail your disc content. Be at ease knowing that shipping discs is extremely cost effective. Due to the fact that it is considered media, you can opt for the Media Mail option which costs less than 3 dollars to mail (weight up to a pound). Of course, the cost will fluctuate depending on the method, weight, destination, and shipping rate you choose; rush shipping will incur additional charges. Postage costs more at the Post Office so it’s better to buy online.

Regulations

Hazardous materials have shipping restrictions and specific requirements to be met. However, a disc is not considered a hazardous material, which might be radioactive materials and sources or biological samples. One might argue that if it’s been in contact with these types of materials, you may need to classify it as such. It’s not likely this will be the case for you, but if it is, please consult with your shipping company’s regulations and protocol. In the least you’ll be asked to describe the type and classification of hazardous materials.

Also, if you are shipping internationally, you will need to become familiar with that country’s regulations regarding shipped materials. Shipping internationally can often incur additional fees through customs and tariffs. Other countries may have rules about the type of packaging allowed, or the label may need to include additional information.

Safety

If you are sending discs with sensitive content, it can be quite worrying to send it off through the mail or a shipping service. Will it get there and will the right person receive it? There are some things you can do to help protect your information.

You could password protect the disc to ensure that, even if it falls into the wrong hands, it cannot be read except by your intended recipient. Also, buy peace of mind with the Registered Mail feature, which offers proof of mailing, date and time of delivery (or attempted), insurance, and receipt to verify delivery.

Also, to prevent information from spilling out of your chosen packaging, make sure you choose sturdy packaging that won’t tear easily and will weather the rough nature of shipping. Make sure you provide backing to your disc and DO NOT BEND stamps to help prevent bending.

Tips

It’s never a bad financial plan to add insurance or additional shipping services to your shipping order for peace of mind

If you’re shipping internationally, remember to study their shipping regulations to make sure you don’t break them and jeopardize the delivery of your parcel

Thoroughly package your discs so they cannot bend and pad them with bubble wrap so they aren’t likely to suffer from impact
