Tips on using TwisterBox
Unlike other record mailers Twisterbox do not require flats to fill dead space in the mailer, as the inner pocket flaps can be folded to whatever size of shipment is enclosed. For added protection a small piece of box tape across the inner flaps further prevents the record(s) from moving around.
As we all well know, record boxes get thrown around in the shuffle from you to your buyer. Although TwisterBox protects against damage from all sides due to this, the sudden “stop” of an item moving under velocity will always have some impact on the contents. To further protect against this, one tip is to ship your records outside their jackets (When possible) and to use two attached sheets of 12/12″ bubble wrap placed under the record(s) with the flaps of excess bubble wrap folded around the contents like a taco when you close the inner flaps.
How to Fold the TwisterBox
Lay TwisterBox flat with either the adhesive strip (In the case of the Premium) or the longest panel section (For the standard TwisterBox) positioned in the upper right corner.
Grasp the left side of the flat TwisterBox and begin folding the panel horizontally toward the center to where the left panel creates a horizontal “cross” of sorts.
Set record(s) on center of horizontally folded panel and fold in panel pieces that extend beyond the width of a record at the height of the amount of records you are shipping. Should you desire to keep the inner pocket firm around the records a small piece of tape will keep these panels in place.
Fold vertical outer panels over inner pocket. In the case of the Twisterbox Premium peel and expose the adhesive strip for sealing. For the Twisterbox Standard a strip of tape across the outer panel folds (and perhaps across the upper section of the outside for extra reinforcement) will complete the Twisterbox and make it ready for its journey!
