Have you tried...

the post office? They have Priority Mail boxes that are free (of course this means you have to send the box via Priority Mail) that will hold something 12 x 12. They also usually have regulart cardboard boxes (for sale) but I'm not sure of the different sizes available.

When I ship 12x12 paper out for my store, I use pizza boxes. I purchase mine in bulk, but maybe you could stop by a local pizza place and ask if you can have one or if you can purchase one? OR maybe a pack and post kinda mailing center? They have boxes you can buy.

Hope this helps!
Tracy

IF you use a priority box and keep it flat

You might want to seal the papers in a large (2 gallon) zip lock or other large plastic bag and tape it up. The only problem I've ever had with using a FLAT Priority Rate box is that sometimes the adhesive comes undone and the pages slide around and then get caught on the exposed adhesive. Then when you try to remove them from the adhesive, they rip.

Sorry if that was confusing! Wrapping it up in plastic is a good idea to keep the pages dry also!
