Cheapest way to ship PFs?

I have 15 Osocozy PFs I'd like to sell but I'm wondering if it would be worth it to ship them?

Re: Cheapest way to ship PFs?

You might be able to get them in a flat rate (the floppy kind) envelope for $4.90. If they are infant, but probably won't fit.

I sold mine locally as shipping cheap would have meant making nothing. I would have needed a flat rate med box.

When did they start making floppy flat rate envelopes?

I shipped 18 medium size prefolds (little bigger than infant ones) and the cheapest way cost me a little over $8.00.

I didn't know they made floppy flat rate envelopes either?

Re: Cheapest way to ship PFs?

They're called padded flat rate envelopes and they're lifesavers. I do 80% of my shipping in these and save a lot. I've shipped size 6 woven wraps and toddler sized SSC carriers in them. Please read the thread below:

I would probably be able to make 15 prefolds fit into a PFRE. I've stuffed something like 10 medium maternity tops (some long sleeve) in one of those before (!!!!) when I was gifting them to another mama on here and couldn't afford to pay medium flat rate out of pocket.

Re: Cheapest way to ship PFs?

expaik- you have to be the best shipper ever. (adorable avi btw)

I ordered the pfres from the PO-- because of your thread... my question is- is there more than one size? Like a bigger one we could order for prefolds? I'm going to practice tonight (out of interest) but I'm not sure I could get that many pf in one of those. Wouldn't it be best to ship prefolds in regional rate boxes (when not too far apart)?
