PSA Card Packing Guidelines
The flexible pouch you choose must be sturdy enough to allow us to remove the item safely.
If you do not know where to purchase flexible plastic pouches, you can always order them through PSA.
For the protection of your items, you may want to insert your cards/tickets into a soft card sleeve or mylar before inserting into the Card Saver.

Inside Card Saver
We do not accept hard acrylic snap cases, top loaders or screw down holders.
These holders allow movement during shipment which may result in damage.
Put all of your cards in between two cardboard pieces that are larger than the items. Hold the package together with rubber bands. Ensure that the rubber bands are not too tight. They should be just tight enough to hold the cardboard pieces together and prevent the cards from falling out.
CAUTION: If packed too tightly, the items inside may get damaged.
Protect the items with packing material such as bubble wrap or other shipping/packing material.
Small Bubble Wrap
Pack in a sturdy cardboard box. If using styrofoam pellets to pack the items, please be sure the items are kept together in some manner so they are not scattered about the box when it is opened. Make sure that they are not packed too tightly. This may cause damage if mishandled.
Do not use clear, vinyl tape if shipping USPS.
Use packing tape to completely seal the outside of the box.
CLEARLY MARK the GRADING SERVICE you have selected on the OUTSIDE OF THE BOX. Mark in many spots. This will expedite the process or your order. THIS IS THE ONLY WAY TO VALIDATE THE GUARANTEED SERVICES. If you have MULTIPLE SERVICES in one box, please mark the outside of the box with the service with the fastest turnaround time.
