YES go to the post office. They have nice padded envelopes that are not expensive to send. Putting insurance or sending it express or something will make it more expensive. If you're worried about it, wrap it in a few layers of bubble wrap and put in a small box - their smalles is something like $7 to send, and you can have deliver confirmation put on it. But definitely take it to the PO. And as far as putting "do not crush or bend" on it - trust me, it's not worth it - *I* work with the mail - I unload it off the truck, and load it into my pickup to bring to a few post offices - those little packages get thrown into big bags and I cannot see them - I cannot see if they say "fragile" or anything on them. And I KNOW I am not the only one who throws those bags around. So seriously - your best bet is lots of bubble wrap and a small BOX - sturdier than an envelope.
