For the larger items like rocking horses, what do you recommend using as packaging material for shipping? Also, what is the best method for shipping larger items (FedEx, UPS, USPS, Greyhound?)

Thanks!

I generally use the Post Office.   But, Big items like rocking horses that go 2000 mile I disassemble them and send instructions and photos.  That way the grandkids can reassemble the toys for the great grand kids, when they arrive.  My Christmas postage last year was over $230.   I keep saying make things no bigger than my fist.  Yea, yea.

For my shop, I try to keep shipping prices as low as possible. I need to make toys that have shipping weights under 16-ounces. Less than 16-ounces ships for four dollars or less.
