Has anyone shipped with padded envelopes? What are everyone's thoughts on them? they seem more cost effective but i worry about how well cigars ship in them.

    Don't do it. They get beat to crap....honestly just pay the extra $3 and do the flat rate

    Thats what i was thinking. Its hard though cause i dont have any boxes laying around here that would be good for shipping and the small flat rate boxes are too small. lol Then the medium sized ones are kinda spendy.

    Check first class. It's frequently less than priority...

    The size that ccom ships our stuff in usually works out to be ABOUT (IIRC) the same price as the small flat rate and gives you more room.

    you can fit around 8-10 cigars in a flat rate with some small bubble wrap just fine......

  • Definitely recommend the USPS small flat rate box, for about $6 over a padded envelope. Unless you have a hard case you're planning on mailing and then getting back they'll be destroyed during the process. I've shipped as many as 7 or 8 cigars, in a plastic baggie with a humi pack and they all arrive fine. The boxes are free at your local USPS, and I believe they can be ordered online too but that may be business accounts only.

    First time I shipped something was in the padded envelope. Way cheaper but as soon as I saw the employee toss it in a bin I said "never again". I warned the person and he did say one maybe two were damaged. I felt bad. Wasn't worth the cost effective.
