What Are The Different Types of Mailers?

If you have an e-commerce business that ships directly to customers then you know the importance of your product arriving safely. Standard cardboard boxes are a traditional, excellent way to keep your products safe and protected from damage during the shipping process. However, they are not always necessary.

If you are shipping small, flat, robust products, you can save a substantial amount of money by making the switch to mailers. Mailers on average are not only cheaper to purchase but are also lightweight and cheaper to ship.

They come in a variety of different types and each type is designed with a specific purpose in mind. Whether your products need protective padding, water resistance or a step up on your competition, we have got you covered. Check out the different kinds of mailers below.

Corrugated Mailers

Corrugated cardboard mailers are essentially a compact version of the reliable cardboard box. Even though you still need traditional boxing materials such as void fill, padding and tape to protect your products completely, our small box mailers ultimately mean less material and less dimensional shipping costs. These boxes are lightweight, thick and sturdy and they are guaranteed to provide ample protection for small, fragile items during the shipping process. They come in a variety of different shapes, sizes, styles, and colours.

Bubble Mailers

Bubble mailers are a durable lightweight solution for shipping that is both padded and economical. They are ideal for shipping promotional materials, books, stationery, DVDs, electronics and other small items that are robust but still require protection from damage. Additionally, bubble mailers come equipped with a strong self-sealing strip that eliminates the need for tape. Find these mailers in either brown kraft or white colour, along with a variety of sizes that are sure to fit your product.

Poly Mailers

Poly mailers, also known as polyethylene mailers, are available in a variety of different sizes and styles. These styles include poly bubble mailers, tear-proof mailers, long mailers, clear view mailers, expansion mailers, returnable mailers, and even unique coloured poly mailers. The great thing about poly mailers is they are incredibly resistant to weather, tampering and tearing which makes them a reliable and durable option for shipping your goods. Poly mailers are best suited for clothing, bedding and other soft materials that are not susceptible to damage from the shipping process. The bubble version of these mailers is ideal for books, documents and other important paper materials as it provides padding and weather-resistant features. The strong self-sealing strips eliminate the need for tape and packaging labels can be attached directly.
