I think most of us have at one time or another sold off a bunch of the junk around our house we didn’t need or want and then had to ship the stuff to buyers around the world. The hard thing for me is always finding a box that will fit whatever it is I am shipping.
A new packaging concept called Universal Packaging System or UPS has surfaced and this could be the answer to my packing woes. The system is a square piece of cardboard with lines scored all over it. The lines are fold marks and make the cardboard easily fold into just about any shape.
Once you get whatever you are trying to ship wrapped in the cardboard sheet, you simply tape it up and ship it off. This concept would also make storing your packing materials very easy since the sheets are thin.
