This is a question mostly for sellers/distro/label runners.

So I'm looking for some good boxes to ship 7" records in.

For 12" lp's I usually use these Pratt Fold-Over Boxes:

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00N41JJZE/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

They are sturdy enough and also save time when I am packing a bunch of stuff, but I haven't been able to track down or find something similar for 7" records. Do any fold-over boxes for 7' exist?

I'm going to need to buy a bunch of 7" boxes in bulk, so I'm open for some recommendations. Thanks!

Uline.com has stuff in bulk. I buy shipping supplies for my warehouse from there and it delivers within a day in the US.

If you're in the USA, I would recommend that you get these for free from USPS:

You can fold them over 7"s and put it into a blank envelope for first class mail - roughly $3 to $4 per 7". If it's an expensive 7"s then just stick it in a box. 7"s are very easy to pack using free material.

Yeah, I'll second U Line but we use this 7" mailer.

For 1-3 7"s I usually just cut out cardboard squares that are slightly bigger than the 7", tape them shut and then wrap a piece of bubble wrap around it and stick it in a generic grey poly-mailer.

7"s are pretty durable usually. Just get the cheap shot in a lot on ebay, and wrap the 7 inch in news paper
