How should I pack up my slides for shipment?

Slides should be packed in the original boxes or wrapped in small groups with strips of paper and rubber banded together. We suggest that you do not ship slides in carousels because they are heavy and costly to ship. We are happy to pull slides from your carousels and return them in the same order.

Place the boxes or wrapped slides into a smaller box, which you will pack into the larger box for shipping. This reduces the possibility that the negatives will be scratched or otherwise damaged in transit.

Make sure to pack your materials using cushioning packing material that is dust and static-free such as static-free packing peanuts or bubble wrap. We discourage using newspaper or shredded packing.
