You could either wrap it up in a few inches of bubble-wrap or use a bunch of packing peanuts and stuff it in a box. Make sure there is plenty of protection on the sides and ends of the card in case of rough handling. I normally use USPS priority shipping with insurance. Did PNY provide you with a shipping label?

Be sure to use an antistatic bag if you use packing peanuts. Those things create more static than you can imagine.

Packing peanuts, bubble wrap and an antistatic bag. I sometimes keep the packing peanuts that come with stuff I order so I can use them if I ever have to ship something. You can buy them but I don't know if you can get them in small bags, just big bags, like at Staples.

You want to make sure it's well protected because the boxes sometimes get thrown around during shipping.

agreed with the above. if you still have your ORIGINAL BOX w/ foam you can just go to your post office and get a flat rate box (would be medium box probably). then just in case, add insurance if you would like.

You just print out the label on regular paper, cut it out and tape it to the top of the box with clear tape. It will say on the label whether it's prepaid or not. If it's a UPS or USPS label, it's probably prepaid.
