Sending a mug in the post without the right mug packaging almost guarantees that it will arrive with a broken handle. Mugs are among those things that are a real challenge to package. However, that does not mean you cannot send a mug to that special coffee lover in your life. It just takes special polystyrene mug packaging. This type of packaging includes two pieces that encase the mug and handle in Styrofoam and still fit neatly into a small box. The polystyrene absorbs the shock of minor impacts and holds the mug in place to prevent movement inside the box. Mug packaging is indispensable for those who collect mugs, those who sell them, and those who simply want to send a mug as a gift without having it arrive in various pieces. At last, there is a way to send a personalized mug as a gift to loved ones who are far away. Mugs of all sorts, as well as mug packaging materials, are available on eBay with convenient shipping options.
