    Default Sending CDs by mail

    I'm sending in CDs to a model. I want it to arrive to her safely and in one piece. Can I just pop them into the mailbox?

    Am thinking to send by Registered Mail, but no time to pop by post office.

    Advice needed. Thanks in advance!

    should be ok... remember to tape the cover to prevent any dislodge, or better still, tape the disc to the case.

    I've send many CDs out to friends and families. I usually go to SingPost and buy the cd box from them and then send either by registered main or normail mail. So far no problem. Those CDs are quite tough.

    Just put the CD into envelope, put in mailbox can liao?


    Actually she lives quite near my place, can just slot into her mailbox. But I don't think that it would be right to do it. Private residence (as opposed to HDB) somemore.

    actually most of the mailbox like HDBs ones are central locked by Singpost, so u can't 'spam' them, alternatively can leave it with the security guard if any...

    i sent dvds to my friends via the same method

    the postage for 1 CD is roughly $0.31, just be warned that you will receive $0.01 and $0.02 stamps as change

    Nothing wrong. I have sent many before.

    Just write: DO NOT BEND and it should be ok.

    And I did not even use an envelope. I used an A4 writing paper and folded it to match the size of the CD.

    You can pay normal postage.

    Hope this helps.
