 Irregularly Shaped Items

Bare Metals: - Completely tape the address label to the item being shipped. Do not use "flying tags." Cover sharp or protruding edges with taped-on corrugated cardboard pieces.

Fabric and Wallpaper: - Rolled goods travel best when shipped in corrugated boxes. If a fabric roll is shipped in a bag, make sure the bag is tightly wrapped and taped to reduce the risk of tearing. Place duplicate labels inside core or between top layers of material.

  • Any article that is not fully encased in an outside shipping container.
