    Hello,

    Do you ship a lot of your product? Anything that can be rolled seems simple but what if it can't? i can't stock 100's of sizes of boxes. Do you stock flat cardboard, cut to size and sandwich it sign in-between? Is that safe from damage or does it need bubble wrap too. Better to figure this out before I need to ship a large sign by courier or UPS.

    Thanks

    We have terrible luck with larger signs (30x48+\-) or anything heavy in a single box 30lbs or more via ups.
    We put do not bend all over the larger ones and it does nothing. The heavier boxes get dropped on the corners. We had one sent back with hand truck wheel marks right across the do not bend label.
    We started making frames with fir strips around the larger dimensions and boxing them. Anything moderately heavy 40lbs + goes LTL on a pallet. Loading a pallet and not using boxes is honestly probably a wash cost wise. Boxes arent cheap nor is labor spent screwing with them.
