Anyone know where one can buy video card sized (2-slot minimum) boxes with foam inserts / cut-outs?

It finally happened, I inherited a video card (EVGA RTX 2070 XC Black) that didn't include the original packaging (other than the outer sleeve). So I was wondering where I can get a suitable box (plain, unbranded, preferably black) with a padded insert (preferably cut-out)? Part of 'my brand' when I sell things is to preserve as much of the unboxing experience as possible. Even if the buyer doesn't care, I still do. Just feels wrong to me to sell my hardware in any other way.

This is not about "how to ship a video card," just looking for package materials that are as close to OEM as possible.

TIA!

Thanks, for the foam it looks like Pick 'n Pluck foam might be suitable. It doesn't have the OEM aeshetic, but since I do not have the tools to cleanly cut foam myself, this will have to work. It's basically pre-cut cubes that you pluck out yourself to get a custom fit.

(Edit) The boxes linked are awesome, but the colored boxes appear to be bulk orders of 10 boxes / order, which is about $30. :(

Go to your local fabric or craft shop. They should have bulk foam to cut to size and you can make a smaller box from a bigger box.

plain old packing foam and an Exacto knife work well and both are pretty cheap
