I tend to just use Mailing Bags as they're pretty strong but depending on the item I sometimes wrap in Tissue Paper :)

I sell my family's clothes on ebay and just put them in a sainsburys carrier bag and then wrap them in brown paper, 99% of them arrive fine and this is a bit cheaper than buying mailing bags - get your brown paper from wilko's as it's really cheap (or Ikea if you have one near you).

i RECYCLE AS MANY PADDED ENVELOPES AS I CAN. Plus they cheap to buy in £1 shops. Failing that next, M&S or tesco bags for life im sure be sufficient, for most. Yea if you selling expensive clothes fine, but if you selling kids clothes etc you usuing all ya profit on packaging buying mailing bags

I'd agree with above post, we regularly get feedback comments on the good packaging so they obviously don't mind shopping bags and brown paper, anything to keep your p&p costs down to pass on to the buyer is best. Also, if you are using mailing bags, make sure you buy the correct marker pen to write on them as I've received a couple where half the writing has rubbed off in the post but just enough has been left to get it to us.

I'm only sending soft clothing items. Thank you all for your feedbacks, I was worried buyers would expect it to be sent in boxes. But now I know its ok to go with the mailing bags, courier bag/brown paper, and bubble mailers packing options. Cheers Repped all.

I use the Smartprice black rubbish bags to send clothes - just put the item inside, wrap it round and tuck the sides in. It ends up looking quite smart and has a few layers around the item too - I regularly get good comments for my packaging :)

I bought sharpies. The ones that have a fine end and thicker end 99p in home bargains for 4. I find these fab for loads of things .:)

How much does it coast to send two jumpers in the post to someone

Wow, resurrecting an old thread. Depends on the weight and size. I'd pack them up and take them to a post office - It'll be at least £3.95 2nd class recorded, possibly more!
