i sell cds without packaging sometimes...but if i do it they try to charge me $3 for media mail for a one or two ounce cd. way cheaper if i sold ten for probably same price. is there a way that they can be mailed to go through machinery, which i think is the problem. they do flex but postmaster told me that paper envelopes can get ripped in machinery. any suggestions? make tyvec mailers?

You should be able to find them in places like Staples, etc. They work. One thing to avoid completely is bubble wrap mailers. They aren't worth the money.

Try a search on eBay for "CD Cardboard mailer" - the range is enormous.

These cardboard mailers are the ones I use to try to avoid the higher costs for shipping. Sometimes it works. Every now and then I get some hardass at the post office who says it isn't flat enough and sends it through postage due, one was returned (I was mailing cloth masks in them.) A CD should go just fine.

You can mail it like a first class letter and keep it low. A first class large flat envelope is $1 for the first ounce and each additional ounce is .20 cents. Up to 12 ounces, I think? But you're looking at 1 or 2 ounces tops for one CD. You'll probably have to write "first class letter" on it to be clear your intentions.

SRS's are the ones to get. NO question.

The difference between #'s envelopes and mine is a few square inches of cardboard, so a little lighter. Otherwise either will work. I have a cabinet full of mailing stuff from years of selling things on eBay. To find the items again (like the link above) I go through my purchase history at Amazon.
