Why are neon signs illegal?

You can only use packaging peanuts if you fill spaces between the inner and outer shipping boxes. You can use rigid, non-expanding packaging foam that fits the shape of a shield, especially if you are shipping bare tubes. You can separate the layers by gluing cardboard columns to the flat board. Place styrofoam blocks a few inches higher than the glass tubes in strategic locations on the front of the sign.
