I've been waiting a month for a load of these from Target. They're trickling in. Today it was 2 sets in a massive box that could fit 10 of, sent 2000 miles, zero dunnage, perfect condition.  Cheers, FedEx.  Jeers, Target.a910e0d1fab20cb11b30405b56674ad9.jpg

I go back and forth on what’s acceptable for box damage. Here’s what I just got from Zappos as an investment. Not pancaked, but definitely creased all all along the top. Their system is setup to accept returns, but not exchanges (for Lego). I got it at 30% off (20% Honey + 10% educator discount). I recently got them to knock 10% off 123 Sesame St, which I got for 25% off, so I don’t want to raise too much of a fuss too often; and I’m not sure I’d get the 20% Honey offer again if I returned/repurchased. In other words, I’m not happy but I’m leaning towards keeping it. Thoughts?757907e72a73e8297017d0a181f062f7.jpg

That’s a horrible way of shipping  these tbh. I would have used a box after sandwiching the poster between the cardboard 

I agree. I once sold some baseplates and shipped them in a padded envelope; there were 4 baseplates so i assumed it would be fine. Mail carrier was determined to make the package fit in the mail slot, so he bent them and shoved them in.

lego always sandwiched my vip prints with cardboards and external shipping box. Thought it was the standard, but after viewing this I guess I was just lucky

I'm planning to sell one of these. Viewing these pictures has given me the fear. Not sure how to make sure it gets there in good condition now.

I imagine if you use three+ layers of corrugated with the flutes layed perpendicularly it would be just fine. Even the above would have stood a much better chance with a single sheet with folds at the top and bottom to provide lateral stiffeness to the package. heck, glue some paint stirrers between the layers :D

Paint stirrers is a novel idea. There were several layers of corrugated cardboard here and I've had prints shipped from artists in a similar manner that arrived fine. If someone wants to fold it up they are going to do it no matter what.
