Most small fragile items are best packed with unprinted newsprint. There are a few exceptions when bubble is required but the unprinted newsprint is so much more efficient and saves time and money. Before you put any fragile items in a box its a good idea to make baseballs with the newsprint and fill the bottom of the box which will provide an air cushion. Wrap each piece with plenty of paper and its best to stand up your dishes or glasses in the box. We strongly recommend that you use new boxes when packing any fragile items. The integrity of most used boxes have already been compromised not to mention any sanitary issues. Also mark the box as fragile on the top and at least two sides.
