Padded envelopes combine durable shipping envelopes with protective padding to guard your products against damage during transport and delivery. Many of these shipping envelopes are made from tear-resistant kraft paper that comes from treating wood chips with sodium hydroxide and sodium sulfide. This process creates a paper known for its strength and flexibility. Another material commonly used for shipping envelopes is polyolefin, a tear-resistant plastic. Poly padded envelopes are lightweight, which reduces shipping costs. They are also water-resistant, providing extra protection to keep contents dry. Both polyolefin and kraft paper envelopes are recyclable. 

Benefits of Using Bubble Mailer Envelopes

Bubble wrap is one of the most frequently used padding materials in mailers. It is often added to poly mailers or kraft paper envelopes to provide extra cushioning during product shipping. Bubble wrap consists of air pockets trapped between two layers of polyethylene sheets. It is lightweight, and offers products significant protection from damage, as it resists shock, static buildup, and vibrations caused by rough handling. Bubble wrap stabilizes the envelope's contents so that products do not move around, or incur damage during transportation.

When Should You Use Padded Envelopes?

Padded envelopes can protect fragile items or small products during mailing. As these envelopes are flat, they are a good fit for smaller, solid objects such as cosmetics, jewelry, or electronics that need extra cushioning. Padded envelopes come with many practical features such as peel and stick tabs that offer an easy, tamper-evident closure. Tear strips provide quick opening, and heat seal envelopes ensure the closure is tight. Choose from high slip padding or anti-static bubble pouches for additional cushioning.
