When are mailers and envelopes a good fit for your products?
Some e-retailers make the mistake of shipping all their products in cardboard boxes, without even considering alternative packaging methods. But mailers and envelopes are an ideal choice for many small to medium-sized items. These packaging solutions are designed to fit snugly around the items you are shipping, keeping them safe in transit, eliminating unnecessary waste and minimising expenses.
How to Choose the Right Mailer or Envelope
Mailers are well-suited to small, flat products, such as books, magazines, CDs and DVDs. Our book mailers, mailer boxes and secure mailer boxes are available in various sizes and provide a durable all-in-one packaging solution for your e-commerce business. All three styles feature a self-adhesive closure for quick and easy assembly – no void fill or packing tape necessary.
Envelopes are also versatile and reliable, perfect for shipping stationery, books, photos, prints and other flat items, as well as small electronics, cosmetics and gifts. Our rigid cardboard envelopes have sturdy edges to prevent damage to corners, and our Jiffy padded envelopes add an extra layer of protection to safeguard items during the shipping process. Packing is straightforward with both envelope styles; simply place products inside, seal with the self-adhesive strip and ship.
Benefits of Mailers and Envelopes:
- Environmentally friendly: When you size your packaging to fit the items you’re shipping, you automatically cut down on material waste. You’re choosing packaging that uses less paper to make, and you’re eliminating the need for void fill and plastic tape altogether. Our mailers and cardboard envelopes are made from high-quality, recycled paper and are 100% recyclable. And our Jiffy padded envelopes are constructed from 65% recycled paper, which is 100% recyclable, compostable and biodegradable.
- Economical: Using fewer packaging materials isn’t only good for the environment; it’s also beneficial for your company’s bottom line. Because mailers and envelopes are slim and streamlined, they are less expensive to ship. And since they require no void fill or tape, they reduce your overall expenses and warehouse storage space.
- Multipurpose: E-retailers often struggle to find packaging that is suitable for a wide range of products. Mailers and envelopes can be used for many different items, allowing you to change or expand your inventory over time.
How should you send posters, prints and other long items?
Long products – like posters, artwork, flags, umbrellas or sports equipment – pose unique shipping challenges. Many of these items don’t fit well in standard boxes and require protective packaging to prevent damage.
Round and triangular postal tubes are perfect for securing these large items during shipment without adding void fill. Our round postal tubes are made from resilient spiral wound fibreboard and include plastic caps for easy assembly. Our triangular postal tubes are a good solution for businesses with limited storage space. While you can fit approximately 200 round postal tubes on a standard pallet, you can stack up to 500 triangular tubes on the same pallet.
