Shipping CDs Safely

Most, if not all, customers who receive a CD with a cracked jewel case feel a bit slighted. Here at DWM, we go the extra mile and replace jewel case parts as needed. Though we are eager to insure that the end user gets a pristine product, it is nice to receive CDs that are intact. Here are a few tips that might just make the transportation process a little safer for your music.


►WITHIN THE USA, A BASIC CARDBOARD BOX WITH PACKING MATERIAL SHOULD BE OK.

►THE LEAST EXPENSIVE WAY TO SEND A QUANTITY OF CDS IS BY USPS MEDIA MAIL. THE WORDS "MEDIA MAIL MUST BE ON THE BOX.

►IF YOU PREFER TO USE A PADDED MAILER, PLEASE INCLUDE A COUPLE OF LOOSE PIECES OF CARDBOARD FOR EXTRA SECURITY.

►IF YOU ARE SHIPPING TO DWM MUSIC FROM OUTSIDE THE USA, COST BECOMES A FACTOR.

►AT DWM, WE PROVIDE JEWEL CASES FOR IMPORTS (AS REQUIRED). THIS REDUCES YOUR COST!


FOR IMPORTS, we recommend that each CD disc be put in a paper or plastic CD envelope. You can also put the CD between the pages of a 4-panel (or larger) cover insert (avoiding any staples). Then put all cover inserts/CDs in a sandwich bag (or a plastic bag); but not too tight and please do not use rubber bands. This can cause a crease on the insert as it bends over the CD. The important thing is to insulate each CD and keep the bundles secure. A loose piece of cardboard with the CDs, in a padded mailer should be fine for this purpose. DigiPaks should be well protected since a broken tray cannot be replaced. This is just one idea; you might have a better one.
