Shipping methods/etiquette?

What's the standard protocol for shipping a couple discs? USPS, FedEx, UPS? What type of packaging? Apologies for the dumb question.

USPS, with large manila envelopes, it is cheap and easy and I never have had a problem. Go to Costco or Sam's Club and buy a large amount of large manila envelopes and you will be set for a long time.

Or $2.63 + manila envelope. Most the discs I send and receive get to their arrival in 2-3 days USPS First Class (regular shipping).

USPS. For 2 discs in a bubble envelope I usually tape them together so they don't rub/bend against each other. I usually fold the other half of the envelope over the discs so they don't move around, plus it provides extra padding. Don't forget to write "Fragile- Do Not Bend" front and back of the envelope.
I would like your X-Wasps, please.
