Looking for a source for shipping supplies

I'm looking for a source for breather bags and those styrofoam containers. I'm planning to ship my shrimp. Anyone know of a good source? I did a google search on "fish breather bags" and all the results say how to use them and not where to buy them. I'm not sure what size bag is best for the shrimp.

Look up Kordon breather bags. AS far as styrofoam containers go I don't know.

I don't know about those styro boxes (though would like to as well), but I've read about a decent substitute ~ line the box with pieces of styrofoam cut from a 4x8 sheet of it sold for construction purposes. You should be able to get those styrofoam sheets at most lumber yards, though it's not guaranteed all will have them ~ I just went the other day to get one from Sutherland's down here and they didn't have them. I plan to call around to find them before I go hunting that again.

Also, you do know the USPS will send you free Priority Mail boxes, right? They even cover the postage! Just look under "Shipping Supplies" or something like that on their website.

Peace,

I raise my sword in the air in the battle against clado. I have been beaten in this battle but the war is not over. As my wounds heal I amass another army, an army with many legs, an army of Amano's......

I thrust my tridant into the mass of medusa like staghorn. I am wounded but I refuse to take a knee.

Wow, it's like $3 per shipping box. I think I'd rather go and buy the insulation board thing. I thought it would cost about $1, so I would just get those since I don't ship too much, but dang xD

the 1/2" insuation boards at HD that are 8' x 4' are like $10. Im not positive about the price but if volume is your goal that is the most cost effective but time ineffecient.

RCS. I actually gave and sold enough locally, that shipping was no longer required.
