Rich – the OP is working on this project as we speak. if he sells it online to someone across the country,
(or even outside the country, for that matter) he must figure out how to package, box and ship it.
please toss in your suggestion as how he should pack and ship it. (and pretend you are taking full
responsibility for any damages that may occur in shipment).

- John Smith

Such drama. What’s with the “pretend you are taking full responsibility” nonsense? Do you take full responsibility for all of the advice you offer on here? Fortunately, neither of us has to take responsibility for the OP’s packages being delivered safely. Know why? There’s this thing called insurance that adds just a few dollars to the cost of a package. I ship things all over the country in cardboard boxes — indeed, millions of packages are shipped safely every day in cardboard boxes. Some are expensive, fragile items at that. Major shippers are Six Sigma operations. They don’t stay in business by messing up people’s packages.

I asked why he would spend time and money to package something in a way that will unnecessarily add to the cost. It doesn’t sound like the OP has a lot if money coming in. If he can sell them for enough to justify his hard work and the added expense of that crate and the shipping costs it will add, that’s great. Otherwise, why spend time and money where it isn’t necessary? Spend it on more product, better marketing strategies — things that will add to your sales, not your expenses.
