How do I learn to pack efficiently?

SuzanneBBSuzanneBB subscriber Posts: 1
We are starting a new online business selling specialty food products.  We are very new to this type of business and want to cover all the bases before the first order is taken.  One thing we don`t know anything about is packing.  We don`t want to under-pack and risk breakage, but we don`t want to overdo it and inflate shipping costs. 
Is there a primer somewhere with guidelines for safe and efficient packing?   Is there a standard rule of thumb regarding sizes and amounts of bubblewrap, when to pack an inner box into an outer box, etc? What about a percentage of peanuts per product, or size of box?
Thanks for any advice SuzanneBB4/18/2008 8:40 PM
