Thank you for your responses.

econlady, may I ask why double bag them? I use a gallon freezer bag. Should I double that?

Pip, thank you for your support. I appreciate it  IMG_2200

I freeze the finished ones, but had never frozen undecorated ones. With choosing to do 2500 this time, I had to look into different options. I baked 1500 and froze 500, vacuum sealed A LOT... big mistake!!! They stuck together and we lost a lot of them to breakage trying to pry them apart. If freezing them 2-3 times prior to shipping, that would be ideal. 

The hand drawn ones I'm afraid would run/smudge since it's just food color/edible markers. I'm clueless how to protect the writing from possible exposure. 

Double bagging is to protect from freezer taste.  When freezing I layer the cookies, with parchment paper or wax paper between the layers.  I take them out and defrost them on a rack.  When fully defrosted, and at room tempature I individually bag them (heat sealing the bag) and prep for delivery.  When packing to transport , typically  I layer the cookies sideways.  I do put bubble wrap between the cookies.  Going sideways and using bubble wrap I have less breakage.  I've taken 130 cookies across the country and had no breakage.  I believe it is because I can pack the cookies tighter.
