    Does anyone have pictures! I'd like to learn so i can save my buyers some money! I know its $4.95 flat rate, so that would be awesome to use.

    Please teach me! Pics would be wonderful too!

    Wrap each egg individually with bubblr wrap.... and place in an egg carton if possible. Then surround with shreddings...papper etc. i've received tons packed like this with no breaks.:<)
    Good luck!

    The Post Office is now calling the 9.85 box a Medium Flat Rate Box. There is one smaller but it is very small.

    I don't think you could safely pack eggs in the 4.95 box.

    I use the $10.35 flat rate box. I don't think I can fix any eggs in the $4.95 box.

    you can fit 6 to 8 eggs salfy in one of these boxes. or 12+ guineas eggs. which all made it safe.

    The small flat rate box is only 1 1/2 inches tall.
