Doing Mail Order

Recently I had a  client vist the RV Cushions page of my upholstery business website.

  • Ship Whole Cushions: Package and ship 1 of each size of cushions to us. In some cases this might be helpful, but in most cases this is unnecessary.

How should the item be packaged? (this would have to take into the UPS package preparation guidelines.)  
Possible Packaging methods:


  • Plastic Wrap: Should it be shrink wrapped?
  • Cardboard Boxes:
