I like Andrew's idea, using cardboard and stapling it into an envelope. I have an old heavy guage stapler, I think it can staple 150 sheets of regular paper. Small orders of 2,3 boards can go in construction paper with shipping tape to criss cross the package. I don't mind doing boxes too, but then I don't know what the shipping costs are until I get to the post office. I would have to go to a Canadian post office, weigh it, then go online to USPS to calculate. But after I do one, I'm guessing it will be the same for the next.

I've also experienced some problems similar to Jack's over the years.I strongly recommend that for those of us receiving a half-dozen or more PCBs that you use the small-box approach. The cumulative weight otherwise pretty much guarantees that corners will be chipped, at a minimum, if just stuck in an envelope. Even with padding the form-factor sends it through processing that's hard on corners. I'd certainly pay extra for a box and appropriate internal padding.
