The only problem that I have with this thread is that there isn't anything here addressing pasteurization prior to shipping the bottles. Easy to do and ensure the recipient gets good beer.

Why not USPS?

I have to ship to an embassy in Honduras and USPS is the only way to deliver there.

My cousin works for the state dept.

Just shipped to my second comp in brewing career. Both had specific instructions to NOT tape stuff up. If you need to hold stuff together use rubber bands.

They do not want mummy bottles.

I put together a series of photos on the process of how to ship beer to competitions.
Looking for a way to give and receive beer feedback using online BJCP score sheets?

Just a thought on the cooling side of things, anyone ever tried packing in a bit(very, very little mind you) of dry ice in there with that insulation? It wouldn't get soggy and so long as your box isn't airtight it wouldn't be likely to have pressure issues. I'd just be sure to give the stuff it's own space and not touching the bottles since it could very well freeze things or at the very least make the glass more likely to break. Though I've no idea on the legality of it but can't see it being much of an issue and it could do wonders for keeping brew cold on hot days.
Too many brews to bother updating this...

Great post! Even without the photos the OPs descriptions of the steps are more than sufficient. Is there a way to also sticky this over in the beer swapping forum? I looked for something there, but couldn't find anything. Luckily someone else knew this was here and directed me. But it would provide a lot of assistance if it were in that forum as well.

Solid stuff. I wish the pictures worked, is the link broken or the hosting expired?

I'll see if I can replicate the pictures and post.
