Any suggestions for shipping a mounted photo to South Dakota? A gift in return for putting me up on a trip.

I need to send a matted, 13"x19" print, mounted on 18"x24" foam board.

It was suggested that I should just sandwich it in between two pieces of foam core board, tape the edges, and take it to UPS. It must weigh almost nothing.

U-Haul has boxes for framed items and mirrors, that is about sever or eight inches thick, with notched styrofoam corner pieces designed for a frame to fit into. That box is really too much.

I suppose I could just forgo the mounting and send the bare print in a tube of some sort. But, not the same.

Suggestions? TIA
