How much does a dvd box set weigh?

Just sold Batman TAS Vol. 1-3 on Ebay. Anywho, don't have them here with me (I'm at school) but need to send an invoice tonight that includes shipping to Canada. Would anybody be kind enough to help me out on how much they approximately weigh so I can calculate that?? Please help a guy out!
Thanks

Box sets vary in weight. Are these sets thinpaks, digipaks, or full cases. How many in a set?

1 set weighs 1lb.

A kitchen scale costs $9.00 at K-mart.

Really, I think ya can since you sold the set, but what the hell. Hope I weighed those right. Sometimes my glasses don't work...

I have the Batman: The Animated Series sets and my scale says Volume One weighs 12.5 ounces. I suspect all four volumes weigh the same, so there you go.

Now we just have to figure in the weight of packaging material.
