Can anyone suggest a solution for safely posting LPs.
I have a few I want to shift on TradeMe but was unsure how to best post these safely when sold.

There are LP sized boxes you can get. I'd sandwich the LP in corrugated card then wrap it in bubble wrap and box it up. Should be pretty safe.

Buy and/or eat a lot of pizza and send the LPs in the old pizza boxes :D

You can buy boxes that are 12"x12" and about an inch thick. Not sure where from, but I know crafters use it for sending 12x12 paper.

Or pop into Gilmours or a similar wholesaler and pick up some ready-made pizza boxes ;)

Try and include sheet of thin plywood on top and bottom, inside or outside. Bending is your worst enemy

A soft-drink from the Hauraki Plains?




Sometimes I just sit and think. Other times I just sit.

Thank you. But I can't imagine how to put a can of drink into a pizza box.

Ask your parents.

LP means long play. It's a record. A big round disk usually black that plays music.

You're not serious, right? If so, it's a record, vinyl, like in the old days! Wink
