How To Ship Paint?

8 posts in this topic

If this isn't in the appropriate section, please move. I am curious as to how I should ship airbrush paint, Createx and Wildlife colors specifically. Am I fine just shipping it in a USPS Priority mail box? (Packaged extremely well of course) How have you guys done it?

usps will not accept liquids. $20k fine. Paint should be sent via fedex or ups. Should be marked orm-d and I think your supposed to have a hazmat endorsement for any paint liquid, not sure on this for water based stuff. Solvent based definitely

That should be fine . You are suppose to mark the package "liquid contents" and hand it to the clerk. Do you need my address?

Unless it has recently changed, I have mailed scent through the USPS for quite a while as well as other liquids.

Sounds good. But I'm sure you meant my address.

Major no-no.

That is a $20k fine and possible jail time.

"Many household items can’t go in the mail.

Hazardous materials come in a wide variety of forms and can be chemical, biological, radioactive, or a combination.

The Postal Service's™ definition of a hazardous material includes many common household and consumer products. They may not be dangerous on your shelf at home, but they can become a hazard when shaken or when the temperature or pressure changes.

Some common hazardous materials include…

  • Perfumes
  • Nail polish
  • Flea collars or flea sprays
  • Aerosols
  • Bleach
  • Pool chemicals
  • Paints
  • Matches
  • Batteries
  • Fuels or gasoline
  • Airbags
  • Dry ice
  • Mercury thermometers
  • Cleaning supplies
  • Items previously containing fuel
  • Glues
  • Fireworks"

Thanks for finding that. It's all water based paint. Looks like I'll have to go through UPS.
