Bubble Mailers are fantastic for packaging and shipping products especially for long route destinations. The bubbles on these mailers act as an extra layer of padding that provides cushioning to the items packed inside the mailer. Products shipped through public mail services face harsh environment and are always very close to destruction. Therefore, packaging becomes a very important part of this process.
The traditional cardboard packaging involves a lot of shipping cost because of its weight and non-flexible size. Whereas, bubble mailers are both very light in weight and flexible. This is why people are now switching from cardboard packaging to bubble mailers. Books, CDs, magazines, clothes, and many other fragile items as such are very convenient to be packed in bubble mailers.
With so many merits and negligible disadvantages, bubble mailers are a must have in everyone’s inventory. Here are some tips that you must know in order to use Bubble mailers properly:
- Avoid exerting pressure: A lot of times especially while closing the flap and sealing the bubble mailer, people tend to exert too much pressure on the mailer to ensure that it is sealed properly and there are not any spillage. But while doing this the bubbles inside the mailer end up getting popped and the cushioning no longer exists. Although during the transit the bubbles do pop but you wouldn’t want the mailer to lose all its cushioning before it gets shipped and delivered.
- Consider an extra layer of Cling film: Bubble Mailers are definitely very protective and will ensure your product’s safe delivery as well. But it is always suggested to primarily wrap your product or item with a cling film. This adds on to an extra layer of protection from moisture and scratches.
- Label properly: It is always best to write handling instructions on the surface of the mailer itself. Especially in case of fragile items putting a label of ‘handle with care’ is extremely important.
These tips will definitely be very effective when using bubble mailers to pack your products and items for long shipping destinations and rough transit.
