shipping

Do you think it would be ok to send mts in a bag inside an envelope like a letter (if it is not too thick), or would i have to pay $5 just to send 10 mts?

I would pay the extra and use a priority mail box. I'd be afraid the snails would get smashed and it's only 5 bucks to secure thier welfare.

I agree with Cindy. Any life needs a small box of some kind, even if it is the vcr tape sending box. That can be shipped for under 5.00 priority mail.

If these are the snails you are talking about, in this thread the person sounds as though they are paying shipping. If that's the case, it's really up to them and they should have the option of the best shipping available if that is what they want but certainly more than an envelope.

AFAIK, the cost is the same whether it's a box or an envelope. Take the smaller box (VCR type) and place in the shipping box.
