Will white tissue paper "bleed" onto ponies?
« on: October 10, 2019, 08:33:55 PM »
Probably a silly question, but will white tissue paper bleed onto pony plastic?  I usually put ponies in a plastic baggie before sending, but I want to switch to something a little more environmentally friendly.  (I mean, I'd still be using a bubble mailer so it's not perfect but . . .)

I don't think white tissue paper will bleed, but I'm not sure if it's adequate protection in the case of bleeding.
My Friends of Equestria set from Costco came with some grey recycled paper as packing, like newsprint without the ink, maybe you could use something like that?

It's been maybe a year since I've shipped ponies but I used to always use white tissue and never had any complaints! Deep down I wondered the same thing though and thought about switching to gray or brown but white was just easier to obtain.

White paper has no pigment, so there is nothing that can bleed on to other material.

No - I use white acid free tissue paper to ship ponies and it will not transfer. I had the same environmental concerns so made the switch - even if it is a bit more time consuming to wrap!

I love the acid free tissue paper. Better than plastic baggies as plastic baggies are plastic.. and plastic plus plastic always has the potential to react.
