Sorry if I'm asking stupid questions here but I'm completely new (and clueless).. just wanted to get some more information/examples of how we should be packaging cards for sale/trades:

a) Each card to be in a penny sleeve, always.
b) Cards are to be placed in appropriately thick top loaders, secured by tape at the top.
c) Cards to be sent in a bubble mailer.
So for Penny Sleeve.. that seemed OK, so I ordered some Ultra Pro clear sleeves.. but then for b) there's a few top loaders and they mention "pt" as well.. I got some "regular" ones from Ultra Pro - is that OK for singles? Also does that mean we're supposed to Penny Sleeve the card THEN put the card in the top loader?

Bubble mailer - https://www.officeworks.com.au/shop/officeworks/p/pps-bubble-lined-size-1-mailing-bag-white-151-x-229mm-cobmps1 these ones OK?

Forgot to ask.. are the above rules a "must" always? Even if both parties come to a different agreement?

Thanks!!

I buy bubble mailers at the post at a 100 at at time.There normally 1.15 each,but if you buy a 100.,it comes down to about 43 cents each.So the box costs me 43.00 dollars.

Ah good point, I'm not 100% sure how into this I will get with the trading/selling.

Is my understanding of the way to package these cards correct? Thanks!

Card goes into sleeve.
Card and sleeve together goes into toploader.
You can put cardboard on each side of the toploader for more safety if you want.
Pop them in the bubble mailer.
I always put sticky tape on the top of the toploader so card won,t slip out.
I also put sticky tape on the back seam of the bubble mailer.
Hope i have not confussed you.

Mate, that's perfect. Thanks so much for that. Never used a toploader before but I'll have a look when they arrive.
