Hey~ Can somebody tell me how to pack a globe for shipping. It seems I have a bunch to send. I was thinking gauze and zebco fishing line.

Bubble wrapped, in a coffee can (the red plastic ones are great- just cut out the handle) then bubble wrap then in a box.  Speaking from the ‘receiving end ‘ I  never received one broken when shipped that way.

Apparently the boxes Coleman uses are very protective. I had someone slip one into a padded envelope and shipped it to me. I don’t know how it survived.  21E0E609-4627-4DFA-9B13-B0F6782FED06.jpeg  FC3FFD89-339C-41D4-A02E-C9FB226CC25F.jpeg  87ABDD84-CFF0-4134-89B2-7CCE1BDDF88F.jpeg

I once bought a lantern and a globe from Timm aka gunhippie.  He shipped it to me all in one box with the globe packed in a plastic coffee can. iIt was packed so tightly I couldn't get it out. Had to literally cut the coffee can in half with a razor to be able to unpack the globe.

Just wrap it in some cardboard and stuff it into a beer bottle case:

With the only lantern I’ve got in the bay, bubble wrap was tucked under and around the globe, while it was in the lantern. There was some also tucked under the vent. Then the entire lantern was wrapped in bubble wrap.
My friends don’t call me “Lantern/lampie Levi”

Get a cardboard box slightly smaller than the globe; if several sides of the box bulge out when it's all taped up, you did well.  No, there's no room for packing materials, but if you don't have any, buying them just adds to the cost.

Actually, I have several big food cans I got from a local diner; plenty of room in them for a globe and bubble wrap.

I probably got a little over-zealous with the bubble wrap. I figure as it goes from our 4,000' elevation here down to sea level, the bubbles will get a little smaller.

When I worked on the South Rim of Grand Canyon, bags of chips would look like super-tight balloons and occasionally exploded on the shelf.

I started shipping globes this weekend. For maximum durability I wrapped the inside and outside of the globes with Gorilla duct tape. That should protect them from breakage. I didn't need to use a box or anything. Just slapped the shipping label on the globe and sent them off. Let me know how it goes.

My bother sent me one that he wrapped in newsprint and put in a plastic Folgers Coffee can.  Then the can in a box with more newsprint. Then I used a couple when taking globes in my carry-on bag. They are nice for just globe storage.  I’m kind of coffee snob so I have to steel them from my brother when I head out to Kansas City!

I’ll add too that transit time makes a difference. Paying the upcharge for priority, two day or overNight makes a difference.  I figure the less time they have it the better the chances the package makes it in one piece.  The further it has to go, the more times it is handled.  I will even go so far as to drive it to our regional mail facility knowing that saves the piece getting handled 2-3 times by the postal smashers.  From there its usually presorted and goes to another hub.  Just consider you can minimize the odds that was after you do a great job of packing

You can always follow what Cigar_Mike does. Appropriately sized box filled with foam peanuts.  I’ve bought a few globes from ocp and they have all come packed the same way...and still intact.

I have a new technique. Find a box that has about 1" clearance all around the globe.Spray some spray-foam in the bottom of the box--about 1" worth. Let harden. Place globe in box and finish filling the box with foam, including the inside of the globe.

I'll guarantee it gets there intact.

I bought a Coleman glass coffee pot from someone on Ebay and they wrapped it in bubble wrap then used spray foam around in the empty voids in the box. It definitely got to me unbroken but it took me over an hour to unpack it... I wasn't to happy. I couldn't tell wear to cut the box and not damage the pot.

Not saying yours is that way to open but just a word of caution if you get carried away with the spray foam.

That's the economical way to go, Will! Boxes are just another expense, if you have to buy them.  I think the Gorilla tape will do just fine; it's not like it's any old cheap duct tape.

I guess I forgot the [joke][/joke] part!

Seriously, though, I've seen very expensive and fragile items--think artwork--packed between two plastic bags filled with spray foam. The bags keep the foam from adhering to anything, and using two means there's a seam where they come right apart. For an extremely rare globe or shade, this would be a very good way to pack them--inside a second box with bubble wrap, of course.
