Ok so yes I have been known to mummy wrap. Today though I recieved a package that should recieve the mummy wrap award. I ordered to books from a sender, They wrapped and mummified (sp) the two books seperately. Then they taped the books togather followed by a wrapper to cover the two that was also mummified. I was to tired to even try to begin to read them after the 15 min opening ordeal. lol just thought I would share as it was kinda funny.

What is mummified, and how would you suggest they should have mailed them?

Mum"mi*fied\, a. Converted into a mummy or a mummylike substance; having the appearance of a mummy; withered.


A bubble mailer would have sufficed I'm sure.

Meaning that it in encased in tape and hard to open. You should leave some access point when wrapping books. Someplace to fit the knife or scissors.
