Just as a reminder - please pack your records and tapes carefully using suitable materials. Bubble wrap envelopes are a very good product, and of course bubble wrap itself is invaluable! Polystyrene or water soluble packing chips are excellent, and of course the old standby - newspaper is alright too - cheap and easily available. Once the items are protected, seal the package well with brown parcel tape.
78 rpm Records
The golden rule here is 'Do not skimp on packaging just to save postage costs'. Use your common sense and package your recordings to survive the journey.
78 shellac records are very delicate and brittle - it does pay to package them adequately.
Generally the more discs in a package the less likely there is to be any damage. Discs provide protection for each other. 78 rpm records are strong but brittle. When parceling use plenty of bubble wrap and thick cardboard, this certainly helps. The discs should be protected on both sides, preferably by several squares of card. Cut the card into squares a little larger than the discs and fix these squares firmly around them with adhesive tape.The record itself will then be held tightly and safely by the pressure.
