Along the lines of scroll transportation, whenever I do a scroll, I turn it in  
in a 'scroll saver'.  To make a scroll saver, take corrugated cardboard that 
is clean and stiff and in good condition.  Cut two pieces large enough to give 
your scroll a two inch border.  Now take masking tape of the wide variety and 
carefully tape three edges shut, leaving one long edge open to put in or take 
out the scroll.  I use these, and I know Mistress Tannis does as well.  That 
way, you can transport it safely to turn it in, and the recipient has a safe 
way to get it home.
