Source for inexpensive cardboard thin section boxes?
« on: December 11, 2015, 02:29:11 pm »
Hi,

I often have to return thin sections by mail to users and always face the question of how to mail them securely without spending unreasonable amount of money on the packaging.

Does anyone know a good source for cheap card board thin section boxes (my google-fu came up empty but I have them in my lab, although still from my time back in Germany) or has some other suggestions?

Thanks!

These are the ones we buy from Burnham Petrographics (item #4021):

They are $3 each in quantities of 50 or more and hold 25 slides each.
