Buy Cheap Bubble Envelope Mailers
When shipping anything other than a letter, you may find that a regular envelope is not sufficient for your needs. What you may need is an envelope that is lined with a protective layer of bubble wrap.
You can go to your local grocery store, drug store, or overstock store, to buy a bubble mailer, but you may find that the prices can be expensive. Now, if you're just sending off one small package, you may not mind paying $1 for the envelope, but if you plan on shipping several packages, you may want to find a cheaper option.
I ship a lot when selling in my Etsy store, so I don't like paying a fortune at Wal-Mart or CVS for bubble mailers unless I'm in a bind, and I don't always have spare bubble wrap that I can use. What I had to do to save myself some money was buy bubble mailers in bulk.
On eBay, I found that I could buy a wide assortment of bubble mailers for a discounted price. Now, I always have padded envelopes to ship my products, and I know that I didn't pay a forturne for them.
You can find Kraft mailers and poly mailers, and depending on what you're looking for, one make work better for you.
I find that Kraft mailers are thicker and less flexible. They tend to weigh a few more ounces, too. Poly mailers are lighter and thinner; these typically come in white, but you can buy them in various colors as well.
Either style mailer comes in a variety of sizes.
- 5" x 9"
- 6" x 9"
- 7-1/4" x 7-1/4" (CD mailer)
- 7-1/8" x 11"
- 8-1/2" x 11"
- 9-1/2" x 13-1/2"
- 10-1/2" x 13"
- 14-1/4" x 19"
