Bag + Box + Tape

  • Write your ORDER CODE, NAME, and PHONE NUMBER on a slip of paper.
  • Place it inside a plastic, zip-close bag with your film.
  • Place your bag inside a box and secure with all seams and closures with copious tape.
Do not use a mailer/envelope or rely solely on a box’s built-in sticker seals. We’ve seen both fail regularly!
