Best way to package collectible?
« on: January 01, 2017, 10:23:14 PM »
I have an 8x10 autographed photo of a Star Trek actor with an authenticity certificate that I'm looking to sell. Presently it is in a matted frame with the certificate taped to the back.  I'm looking to put it up on E-Bay. If I get a buyer, what is the best way to mail it?  Do I keep it in the frame and bubble wrap it, or take it apart and box it up in some other fashion?

Unlike some other tech companies or skilled-labor industries, we're always hiring.

Is the certificate visible currently, without removing it from the frame? If so, I'd leave it as is and ship it securely bubble-wrapped in the frame. The less you touch it, the better.

I agree with Miss Piggy and watch a YouTube video on "How to package glass for shipping for eBay" and also insure it.
