  3. Sending a collection: pack the cards in a folder, placing each card into its own pocket.
  4. Protect with cardboard front and back: either the single card or the whole page of cards in their sleeves.
  5. Protect with bubble wrap: by wrapping the single card well and securing with tape. If sending a collector’s album, wrap the outside of the album well and secure with tape.
  6. Place the packaged card into padded envelope or cardboard box, fill any extra space with additional cushioning.

FAQ about shipping Pokemon cards, Funko Pops and medieval collectibles

Can I ship single Pokémon cards through Eurosender’s envelope service?
Yes, you can ship single Pokémon cards through our envelope service, but we recommend to send them with the standard service. Shipping single Pokémon cards in a document envelope increases the risk of damage and bending during transport as the envelope service is intended for documents only. Shipping single Pokemon Cards through our standard service will not only be more affordable, but actually offers better protection for your Pokemon Card, as you are required to pack your cards into a cardboard box instead of an envelope.
How to pack and ship collectibles outside their original packaging?
Most avid collectors will ship collectible figurines, action figures and Funko Pops in their original packaging to prevent the item decreasing in value. However, if you’re wondering what is the best way to ship Funko Pops and other collectible figurines without their original box, we advise you to protect them really well and use additional bubble wrap and cushioning.
