Don't Break Plates
Pack plates vertically, like a record, to evenly distribute pressure across the plate and make it less likely that the dish will break during the move. Follow these simple steps, line the bottom of box with crushed paper or bubble wrap. Then place a individual plate centered on packing paper. Between each dish lay a foam sheet, bubble wrap, packing paper, small linen, or disposable plates. Once you have 3-4 plates stacked with cushion in between, fold the packing paper over the stack of plates making one bundle. (best to fold in the corners of paper) Now you can tape paper closed and place bundle into the box vertically. This process can be used with bowls as well, tweak to your specific needs.
