i recently registered for ozcardtrader's. after reading the notes about postage, can you please confirm that no white envelopes also means brown or other coloured envelopes?

also is it acceptable if (for instance ) i were to sell say a lot of 200 odd cards, can they be enclosed in water proof packaging, held together with cardboard on either side and sent as a large letter? this would mean cheaper postage.

i have posted many cards from easy sales like this with no problems.
thank you

Bubble mailers for all single and to a reasonable amount of cards is a must.
Count boxes are usually used for sets of or large amounts of cards.

Bubble Mailer: https://www.officeworks.com.au/shop...ies/mail-packaging/mail-bags/padded-mail-bags

And for my own habits, a card over say $100 value I put in a One Touch

And for regular card mailing and storage, Toploaders.
All in individual plastic sleeves.

Yep bubble mailer for extra protection, if you pack right and they are flat enough they still go as a letter anyway, $2 in stamps. Extra cost if they’re thicker than the 2cm width I think they allow in that test latterbox thing they have and extra for the weight extra as you probably know.

Registered post went up for me recently, maybe for NSW? So now I usually charge $4 for Standard and have to charge $8 for registered otherwise I’d be out of pocket. If I bought in bulk for bubble mailer and supplies like toploaders though I could probably get that down to $3 regular and $7 registered but I just don’t do the volume anymore.
