    the manufactured "record mailers" pretty much suck , i always go back to sellers on Ebay-who pack the lps , that package there mailings like a armored truck-----ps i am in firm belief that a seller can never use too much packing tape , if the box takes me 10 minutes or so to open, i usually know i am going to be very happy

    FWIW Whiplash mailers are $125 for 120 pcs. I don't use these and am unsure on shipping.

    Depending on quantity ordered regular album mailers can be had for under 0.46 each (shipped).

    For high value albums I use a high quality 12.5 x 12.5 x 1 box with lot's of padding.
  3. I understand the concern, but I've never had any issues from using the generic LP mailers or receiving same from sellers. Having said that it should be noted I'm not a prolific buyer/seller of online used vinyl transactions with maybe 100+/- in total.
