What You’ll Get
If you annotate which label or stamp you would like with your order of blanks, you will receive one for each specified increment of ammunition. E.g. if the label says 10 cartridges, and you ordered 40 rounds, you’ll get 4. For the labels, they will be printed on unbleached paper. For the stamps, they will stamped in acid-free ink on a wrapper-sized piece of paper.
Wrapping arsenal packs can be tricky for the uninitiated. Just about everything will fit in a sheet of paper cut to 8″x10″, and I’ll share a trade secret with you: stack your cartridges in equal rows, and wrap a strip of paper around them. “Belly-banding” your cartridges will keep them together and make them much easier to wrap in a nice uniform package. Also remember to alternate, bullet-ends up and down, etc.
