Great idea! I will have to go the same route, I think.

RE: What size padded envelopes?
on another note...

What type of tape do you use to tape your paypal shipping labels?
Do you take extra caution when packaging, like, writing "DO NOT BEND" or "FRAGILE" on both sides of the envelope?

I been buying .99 cent clear packing tape at a Discount Store, but they sold out two weeks ago & have not replenished. They also, ran out of small size 000 padded envelopes, since I bought everything they had left.. Can't pass up the deal 5x.99cents.... my local Dollar Tree or other dollar stores only sale 2x1 envelopes or don't carry them... In the mean time, I am using some brown packing tape, which does not look very professional, unless shipping huge boxes.. it also rips very easily.. perfect for padded envelopes though..

USPS sales packing tape, but it costs $3.99 ea. Not ideal, if you are shipping lots of stuff. I ran through three rolls of clear tape in the last week & a half..

Now, I recommend, NOT buying the industrial strength clear packing tape... It sticks to everything.. Do not use packing tape to tape the toploaders together.. I hate when sellers/traders do this... it ruins the toploaders & they can not be reused for your PC & looks tacky, if you reship them to another collector you sold or traded to.....

Use scotch tape when taping toploaders or cardboard together around multiple cards... put the cards & toploaders in teambags... then tape them together.. it protects the toploaders too.. they do get expensive if you are using a lot of the thick ones... teambags cost anywhere from $1-2 for a 100 of them...

I've used about 30 120pt toploaders in the last week. I have to run to my LCS to pick up some more.. I can't wait to buy my next box, so I can order some supplies, instead of buying form my LCS, which is more expensive... I wish LCS would discount the card holders, so I can spend that extra money on boxes..
