Mailing 120 film

I've got a half dozen rolls in my freezer and no trips planned soon to a place I can get it processed, so it looks like I'll try sending a batch away by Canada Post to a lab.

What is the best way to send it? Is one of those stiff cardboard or padded bubble envelopes sufficient or would I need to box it up somehow? Any tips greatly appreciated.

not that I post them anywhere, but I use the little M&M or Skittle continers/tubes to protect 120 film in my bag.

For a half dozen, maybe a small box with a bit of padding. I use padded envelopes for up to 3 rolls.

I ended up shipping six rolls of 120 film in a prepaid Xpresspost envelope. I stuffed them into a 5-pack film box and it all worked out fine. $15/each if you buy them in 4-packs so not a bad deal either.
