aGB-FRB-01-main-900x695A pretty interesting item has appeared on the USPS website. New Flat Rate board game boxes, ideal for shipping board games, are now available for free. The box measures 24-1/16″ x 11-7/8″ x 3-1/8″, and can fit two 12″x12″ board games perfectly. Flat Rate domestic price to ship is $16.85, and the boxes even have a spiffy little image containing a chess queen, chess king, and some dice.

I just put an order in for 10 of these. They’ll be perfect come the holidays.
