You’re going to be buying stuff in the Exhibit Hall, so bring along the supplies you’ll need to transport your newfound treasures safely home! Bags and boards for the comics, stiff Mylar sleeves for original art and prints, the ubiquitous mailing tube for rolled posters, heavy padded envelopes for any other item that needs a little TLC on the ride home. Those mailers are also good for sending stuff home, so consider any packing supplies—tape, folding cardboard boxes, etc.—you might need to ship stuff. And if you forget to pack this stuff in advance, remember there are retailers on the floor—and a business center in Lobby D—who sell all of this! Either way, you’re covered!
