A recent thread has gotten me curious as to how people pack their slings for shipment. I would like to know specifically whether you ship them in a vial with a padded paper towel tunnel as shown below or whether you pack them by sending them in the vial (or portion cup) they reside in by adding a paper towel/tissue paper wad to fill the empty space as shown below (or some variation thereof).

I may not get all the choices out there, we'll see from the "other" choice.

Please restrict your answer to slings. Do not make disparaging on other peoples thoughts; I do not want this thread to degenerate into an argument, I just want some data on prevailing methods.

Do not vote for the method you prefer. Do not vote for what you have seen. I want to know what you do.

Please respond only if you have shipped a a number of times, say 10 or more.

I chose paper towel tunnel, but on rare occassions I have had to ship slings in a 1oz condiment cup. When I've shipped in those I've packed them well with towel surrounding them.

Always paper towel 'cocoon'. I don't trust any other method, nor know of any safer one.

I didn't vote because I don't ship slings, but I think another good poll to ask would be "How have you received slings?" Just a thought.
