If you create wooden signs with your Silhouette Cameo or Cricut, packaging and shipping them might present a problem – because of their size. Since wood signs are are generally not fragile, wrap them in bubble wrap and put them in a box to shop. Today, I’m sharing a few different supplies to look into to box your signs.
3 Materials to Use to Pack Large Wooden Signs
- Cardboard sheets: The most economical method is to purchase flat cardboard sheets. (See them on Uline here.) First, wrap the sign in bubble wrap. Then, use a razor blade to cut the cardboard sheet and create a box around your sign. This method is slightly time consuming because you are creating your own box. But, once you do a few, it will go faster.
- Flat rate boxes: If your sign isn’t too large, order flat rate game board boxes from the USPS. These boxes measure just over 23 inches by 11 inches and cost $17 to $18 to ship. Again, you’ll want to first wrap your sign in bubble wrap.
- Regular cardboard boxes: Since wood signs are durable, wrap them in bubble wrap and place them in a flatter style cardboard box. You can find these at Uline here or search your favorite box supplier for boxes meant for shipping artwork. (You’ll want to steer clear of fine art boxes because they are expensive.)
Finding the Best Shipping Rate
The USPS isn’t known for having the lowest rates on oversized packages. Before you ship through the USPS, check the rates of other carriers including FedEx, UPS, and DHL.
