Packaging and shipping signed books is for Illustrators and authors. Use these tools for your efficiency and success. Create a shipping method that works for your business and book releases. As discussed in Illustrator Life Episode 5, these supplies are used in shipping books to customers.
#1. Adhesive Shipping Labels
Print multiple labels with your company address on an 8.5″ x 11″ adhesive label sheet: 2 up, 3 up, or more. Preprinted shipping labels minimizes the time necessary in hand labeling orders.
Handle plastic bags come in various sizes and quantities. Choose the quantity and sizes that will hold multiple books. Inserting a book(s) into a plastic bag, protects against moisture in transport. These bags can also be used at book events.
#3. Padded Envelopes
Padded envelopes come in various sizes. Choose a quantity and one or more sizes that will hold a single book or multiple books.
Corrugated shipping boxes come in various sizes and quantities. Choose a quantity and one or more sizes that will hold a single book or multiple books without extra packaging materials: packing peanuts, packing Kraft paper, or packing foam.
