Since I have enough CBGs around, I send most of the ones I make to other people, not a lot, but some.  I have sent them as for as Italy, to Oklahoma and now have one that goes to southern Texas. I have looked for boxes the right size for mailing, but they want me to buy 25-50 of them at a time for more money than I want to spend.  I think it would be a great idea if you guys at CBN would offer mailing boxes for sale.  Something like a 38 x 6 x 10 would work great for me, and sell them one to maybe five at a time.  Any thoughts?

Not yet, Kevin!  Come on over.

Thanks for all the input guys.  I don't have a problem making the boxes, I just thought maybe I could get Gitty to offer some in their shopping section that could be just the right size and in lower quantity.

Yes John you did tell me that.  Have you found any friends yet for your Thursday Jam Sessions?

How are you, Kevin?   Did you know I moved to Ogden?   I used to have uline boxes and yup they were pricey.  Good boxes though.

Hey there, Kevin. 

I'm familiar with your frustration and have had to shell out more than I'd like on a couple of occasions, just to ship a CBG.

While this may not exactly solve the issue, here's a video from Rob Wrobel about making your own boxes.

I hope there's some value in it for you.

I make a trip to my local recycling depot and get a big box I can cut up to make my own shipping boxes.  It really doesn't take me long to make a fully custom fitted box at all if I just tape everything up rather than glue it.

Ask your local dollar store  to save you the   fake  long stem flower boxes , they are perfect size for cbgs .

I found 38 x 10 x 10 at Uline, but with shipping, 25 of them would cost me $91!!!!

Come on Gitty, step up and use your high volume buying power to help us out here.

I sympathize Kevin. I hate selling instruments online simply because its a pain to box them up for shipping. Somebody needs to sell CBG shipping boxes. I found this guy on eBay, but you still have buy 10. Ugh.
