Say I was to put 250g of shisha in a ziploc bag, could I flatten it out so its MAXIMUM length is 15 inches, MAXIMUM height is 12 inches or more than 3/4" thick?

Because i'm having a stroke...of genius.

Shipping costs for canadians = super expensive, howevvvvvver, mail is not, and in one of those brown envelopes the usps accepts for shipping, the dimensions must equal whats in post 1. If I found a person in the states who could buy the product for me, I would gladly pay for the product + shipping + their time, and it would save me tonnes

Be aware that mail (all envelopes, white, manilla, and non bubblers) go through a mail press, your shisha WILL be flattened. leaky mail = unable to deliver to destination.

i am in accord with Phantastik, just don't do that, it will get messy. Canada Post isnt recognized to be the best handler of package and such. Also, ziplock bags arent the solution to everything but dock tape is, lol

Yeah i'm just advising it, a fellow HP member sent me samples in a manilla envelope (Oregon to California) and when i recieved it it was smushed as flat as the envelope, but thankfully he double bagged it so it did not leak (broke first bag, second bag kept juices in)

Other than that... took a day or two to get here, and i bet it didnt cost most then postage.

ON THE OTHER HAND, to canada, i'm not sure how they handle things at the post office, but if its any similar, you're going to need like double/triple freezerbagged ziplocks for 250g, and even then you're pushing it to really see if the ziplocks would catch the shisha after expanding (given that they mailpress/whatever they do.)

You can write fragile on it or have them stamp it fragile DO NOT BEND etc.. and they will not put it through the machine.. it'll get sorted by hand.. I don't like the USPS though.. they lose things often..

You know what, I tink you should try it out and see if it works. Maybe a test package of shisha. So if it works then it would be great for you.

Hope it works!!! Good Luck!

to avoid leaking you could like shrinkwrap it or whatever that is called. that sucks all the air out.
idk what this would do for the shisha, but considering it should be stored airtight i imagine you would be fine.
