View Full Version : Packaging question

09-26-2009, 02:33 PM
Does anyone know where I would find rolls or packages of the thin spongy foam stuff that companies use to put between things? I need it to wrap packages for extra protection to be shipped in the mail.

I would rather not use bubble wrap.

Staples sells that, bubble wrap, foam, foam nuggets, all by the box.

What works amazingly well is underlay for click flooring. It's thin and a nice foam. You can buy it by the square metre I believe at most flooring places. We use it when we have to pack things like dishes, cuts easy and you can re use it if you want to.
Call a flooring place about pricing and availability.

Make up some popcorn (without butter, of course),.... works great!

This is for paintings. I don't think popcorn would be healthy for paintings. The lumps would maybe make bumps on the canvas, but thanks anyways.
