Funko Pops have taken the world by storm and it is no surprise considering that they are cute, fun, and collectible. Many collectors scour the internet and retail outlets in search for the perfect Funko Pop to help grow their collection. This boom in collection and outline sales has made it increasingly important to know how to package and ship these highly anticipated and in demand product. In this article we will explain the best way to ship single or multiple Funko Pops.

What you will need:

  • Box (the thicker the better)
  • Bubble Wrap
  • Tissue paper to secure the item in the box
  • Tape
  • Discounted Shipping (save money and increase profit margin).

Best way to ship a single Funko Pop

Depending on the client and your product availability you will find yourself in a position where you will be sending a single Funko Pop. In this scenario you will want to follow the steps listed below.

Choose the right size box to send your Funko Pop and keep in mind that the standard box size that Funko Pops sell in are 3.5 x 4.5 x 6.25 and we suggest an 6x6x4 box size for shipping. You will want to make sure that you have a big enough space to add padding and bubble wrap to the box. You may also wish to send a personalized note to say thank you and to give them a reference point should they want to purchase from you in the future. You also want to make sure that the box is small enough so the Funko Pop does not shift during transit.

Wrap the Funko pop first in tissue paper to make sure that the item is protected from any tape residue. You may wish to hold the tissue paper in place with a branded sticker so that an unboxing is very professional for the buyer. Then use bubble wrap to cover with an additional layer of protection from the inside of the box. Make sure to tape the bubble wrap securely around the item so that it is fully protected. You could even use a poly bag to put the Funko Pop in for further protection.

Best way to ship multiple Funko Pops

We suggest that you follow all of the above instructions when shipping multiple Funko Pops and we would suggest that you adjust your box size accordingly. If you would like to have a better presentation and further add to the security and attention to detail we suggest that you use multiple smaller boxes and kit them together in a single box. Obviously the buyer is passionate about these items and would like to know that you as well find a great deal of value in them and in the correct packaging of them. You can also choose to add any branding associated with your shop and have ample room to do so.
