Oh, I had no idea...ill have to look into that, but then I'd have to buy bubble mailers and I usually buy them only as I need them. I might have one more.
Looks like there is no way to ship with tracking, which is the only time I need more than a forever stamp to mail trades.

Quote from Aranthar »Another strategy is to collaborate with local friends and buy large bulk. Some of the guys at my LGS bought 3K toploaders and split it 5 ways.
Quote from Portlis »If you buy the Kraft size #000 in bulk (500) you can get them for less than 7 cents each last I checked. I last bought 2000 of them for about 5.5-6 cents each. When purchased in bulk, bubble mailers are quite literally less than a nickel more expensive than a regular PWE.
Quote from DrWorm »I just opened one where the top loader is closed with what looks like black electrical tape (and no order #), so that one will probably just get trashed since I will nevedr get the gum off the plastic.
Quote from Eryops »
Those kinds of toploaders are the ones that get used first in sending out orders. You don't reuse them? That's silly.
Quote from krichaiushii »How long do y'all wait for someone to mail a card before reporting an issue?
Please mail your cards within 48 hours or less from the moment the trade was initiated.
You are responsible for knowing and adhering to our minimum shipping guidelines. Always protect the card with a toploader.
Senders are responsible for making sure that all cards arrive in NM(-) or better condition. Please review our condition guide to be sure you understand the differences between cards of various conditions.
Do not attempt to send a card from editions: The Dark, Arabian Nights, Antiquities, Legends, or Chronicles unless you are sure you know what they look like.
When shipping higher-value packages, we strongly recommend utilizing Mail Tracking. Because Senders are responsible for making sure that all cards are delivered in a safe and timely fashion, documenting the status of your shipment with tracking services may be critical in the event of a dispute. Packages worth more than 5,000 PucaPoints must be sent with Mail Tracking in order to be eligibe for our 100% Trade Guarantee.
It is your responsibility to verify the authenticity of cards you are trading. Knowingly sending counterfeit cards will result in the permanent termination of your PucaTrade account at the expense of any accrued PucaPoints you may have.
Quote from DrWorm »I think I have 30 that are relatively clear of tape gum. Why would I use the gross ones? They just give people a bad impression of me as a sender. They also stick to other top loaders in my shipping box and gum them up.
Quote from krichaiushii »I reuse toploaders, too, scraping off the worst of the gum.
