I could use a little help. I need a package or box that I can put my game components in.. L 8" x W 5" x D 1.5" boxes. I can do the color wrap or sticker, I am just trying to find a way to ship all the components together.

Ideas?

usps small flat rate boxes? they're even free

though really, you should be able to find different sized boxes all over the place. I know I have seen things at michaels and the container store. And buying in bulk on the internet is probably cheapest.

If you can get the components to fit in something slightly smaller,
how about those plastic boxes VCR tapes used to come in?
You can find them, in bulk, here on the inter-webs pretty cheap!

Here's an example of some boxes I threw together...

Thanks guys! I like those cases! Do the cases have the plastic (bumps/projections inside) that hold the case or are they smooth?

I believe you can find either style when buying them online. You definitely want the "non-bump" interiors. The boxes I have were just odd surplus ones I found here and there, and almost all of them have the "bumps". It's a real pain removing them: I resort to a sharpened wood chisel and hammer... bleah!

And be sure they have the clear plastic "paper holder" thing on the outside: makes it a breeze to print up a cover on plain paper, trim, and insert!

papermart.com is the cheapest source of boxes I've found, as long as you're willing to buy at least 50 or so.

uline.com is another good source.
