  • Clear View Poly Mailers

    The world of shipping supplies is now not restricted to just cartons and rolled up balls of newspaper. There are various types of shipping supplies that are designed and manufactured to perform a specific niche of work. For example, now there are various types of packing foam available depending upon type of material that needs protection. The poly mailers are a part of these specialized shipping supplies.

    Poly mailers are a type of protective mailers that are manufactured from durable plastic with properties like lightweight, moisture resistant and weatherproof structure. These are available in several different sizes and dimensions and various colors and clear too.

    Clear View Poly Mailers

    Why are poly mailers so popular?

    • They provide a cheap option for Kraft or corrugated shipping supplies
    • The poly mailers are weatherproof
    • Because they are made of plastic, they are very thin and take up less space
    • Even thin plastic is durable and tear resistant and mailers made from plastic retain those properties
    • Plastic can be recycled and reused
    • Available in clear, transparent versions, that allow packed goods to be visible
    • Lighter than most of the other mailing options

    What stuff can I send in these poly mailers? And what I cannot? 

    The poly mailers are ideal for packing apparels and other fabric products. These can be used for other additional accessories like shoes, hats and non-precious metal jewelry.

    But to figure out what can be put in the versatile mailers, answer these two questions:

    #1 - Is the product fragile?

    If the answer is YES, do not use the poly mailers. Wementioned thinness as a feature, nothing thin can provide padding and shock resistance to the fragile product that you plan on putting inside the poly mailer.

    The clear poly mailers may attract you to use them because of the see-through nature, but with fragile material without proper padding, poly mailers cannot be recommended.

    #2 - Does it fit in the mailer?

    Every package is bound to face some level of transportation and handling, if the product does not fit properly in the mailer, it can tear it off and cause loss, or worse, loss of a loyal customer.

    If the product fits perfectly, then it’s a go! For example, packing a well folded t-shirt in clear view poly mailer is the way to go. The product will remain secure in the mailer, will not get damaged and will reach to the customer in good condition.

  • Kraft Bubble Mailer or Poly Bubble Mailer? How to Choose the Right One?

    Different businesses deal with various products of different sizes, that means every business needs different sizes of packaging supplies.

    Proper usage of packaging supplies can be a crucial part for your business and the profit ratios of the business too. A properly packed item is not damaged in transportation and reaches the customers in the state it is expected.

    But the question remains, how to determine appropriate packaging material for your business? For example, poly bubble mailers or Kraft bubble mailers?

    Poly or kraft bubble mailer

    The answer to the question hides in one more question - What are you planning on shipping and what features matter to you?

    Look and feel!

    If getting a natural look that the Kraft paper gives out is what you want, then the Kraft bubble mailer is a more appropriate option; but if the clean look and crisp lines that comes up with the use of poly bubble mailers attract you, then the poly ones should be your choice.

    Also, the poly bubble mailers are considered ideal when you want to print the company logos, addresses and other details too directly on the envelope. Though the print remains visible on the Kraft mailers too but the visibility is low as compared to what you would get with the poly bubble mailers.

    Want to give something back to mother Earth?

    The natural looking Kraft bubble mailers are more difficult to get recycled as compared to the poly bubble mailers, because recycling requires paper and plastic to be separated, that is difficult in case of Kraft mailers whereas there is no paper involved in case of poly bubble mailers.

    What kind of closure matters to you?

    The Kraft padded mailers boast of a self-sealing adhesive opening that is tamper-evident, the paper layer drastically increases that tamper evident nature of the Kraft bubble envelopes. The Poly bubble mailers have anti-static liners that are not reusable, once opened drop off the envelopes.

    Moisture

    The Kraft shipping envelopes also known as Kraft bubble mailer are more prone to let moisture pass through whereas the poly bubble mailers are very strong are resistant to moisture entry.

    Freight

    The poly bubble mailers take up less space as compared to the Kraft padded mailers. When the space consumption of the utmost importance, go for the poly bubble mailers but when the space is no issue Kraft padded mailers are a good choice too.

    Next time you are confused about which bubble envelope to go for, remember this article, and get rid of all your confusions and help your business ship products more effectively.

  • What are thermal labels?

    Barcodes, product contents and expiration dates are very often printed on thermal labels. These labels are very convenient for these purposes, and can be carried out using one of the following two methods:

     

    Thermal Transfer Labels

    Which process is right for you?

    Here are a few pointers that will help you in choosing the right process of printing for your labels:

    Direct Thermal Labels Thermal Transfer Labels
    How it works There is a chemical layer placed on the base paper that is going to be used for printing.During the process, the printer heats up the paper at specific locations to initiate chemical reaction that will form the desired print image. A ribbon is placed on the base paper and the heat generated by the printer initiates the carbon pigment from the ribbon to the label paper, creating the desired print image.
    Where are these used? These labels are widely used for short to medium life applications.This kind of print out is widely used in retail and logistics, meat storages and similar places where the print is often exposed to heat, moisture and other liquids. These kind of print outs often end up being used for a long-life application.This type of paper is a good choice where the print quality of a ribbon is preferred over the direct thermal prints, often used with outdoor labeling applications.
    Advantages: 1. These are simple to you as there is no involvement of the ribbons.

    2. Greater productivity due to elimination of the ribbon changes.

    3. Used for both 1D and 3D barcodes.

    4. Can be printed on paper as well as synthetic material.

    5. The quality is good enough for everyday usage.

    1.  Wide variety of papers like, clear, pearl. Metalized, and fluorescent.

    2. Excellent quality for text, image and barcodes.

    3. To get colored print outs, there are colored ribbons too are made available by various manufacturers.

    Disadvantages: 1. Show limited abrasion resistance.

    2. The print starts fading in 6 months to a year.

    3. Over exposure to heat and other liquids turn the print difficult to read.

    1. Require a special printer for use of this methods.

    2. As the ribbons are necessary to print anything, stock of these needs to be maintained and can be looked as an additional expense.

    We hope all this information will help you to understand the complete concept of thermal labels, the two methods that are used in the printing of these labels. If you are looking for a good, reliable and affordably priced source to get base paper and other associated accessories required for printing thermal labels, PackagingSuppliesByMail.com is your destination.

  • Reduce Aisle Related Accidents with Colored Aisle Marking Tape

    Aisle marking tapes are tapes with one adhesive laden side and one adhesive free side, that means these tapes are like normal packaging tapes but are stronger with respect to both the material of the tape and the nature of the adhesive used.

    Polyvinylchloride (PVC) base film, and the adhesive used as a base, is responsible for following features:

    • Durability
    • Puncture resistance
    • Tear and scratch resistance
    • Quick adherence to surfaces

     

    Aisle Marking Tape

    When it comes to floor marking, the floor marking tapes are extremely useful and preferred worldwide over painting floors based on following characteristics of both:

    Colored Aisle Marking Tape Floor paint

    ● The floor marking tape set rapidly, that is these tapes do not take time to get permanently fixed at the site of application.

    ● The application of the colored marking tapes does not require any expertise.

    ● The tapes are cheaper to use as compared to other alternatives available.


    ● The floor paint takes a while before it dries completely, holding the area of application unusable for a longer time.

    ● Use of floor paint requires an expert for proper, attractive and long-lasting application.

    ● Floor paints are expensive as compared to colored aisle marking tapes.

     

    Places that often use colored aisle marking tapes:

      • Supermarket aisles - Large areas, customers who are not well accustomed to the aisles, constant movement of pallets, forklifts, etc.

     

      • Hospital hallways - Hospitals have extremely long hallways, and getting into the right place in time is of utmost importance. In most cases, paramedics who do not work in the same hospital rely on markings.

     

      • Manufacturing facilities: At manufacturing facilities, time means money. Speed is a necessity at such places, and machines can be dangerous, so the floor marking tapes add direction amidst the chaos.

     

    These tapes are made with vinyl material that is designed to ensure high visibility and immediate impact. The bright colors or striped pattern make these tapes perfect for lane marking and for marking out hazards.

    The varying colors of these tapes make the usage of these tapes much higher, including applications where color coding or identification is required.

  • Guaranteed Shipping of Fragile Items with Strong Adhesive Packing Tape

    Cardboard boxes are an active and important tool in the shipping industry. The strength and versatility of the cardboard boxes have made them extremely popular across the world in households, small hobbyist businesses, and even with huge corporate giants.

    Interestingly, a large chunk of the credit for the popularity of the cardboard boxes goes to a necessary product called packaging tape.

    Many of us have experienced the embarrassment that come when the bottom of a box opens and all the stuff we were planning to move ends up falling on the floor and even getting damaged. Imagine how much damage that could do to a business which depends on moving or shipping the goods for its profits.

    Packaging tapes, also known as shipping tapes, play a great deal in holding the base of cardboard boxes together and in making sure the lid of the boxes stay closed during transport. There are ways to make sure that the packaging tape does its job well, there are proper ways to seal a box.

    Adhesive Packing Tape

    A normal cardboard box has two openings with four flaps on each side along with four closed walls forming a box together.

    • Starting with sealing of the base with shipping tape.
    • A lot of us start with closing the small and the large flaps alternate, making a cross pattern. It is suggested that this sequence should not be followed. Close the smaller flaps of the box first and then the larger ones.
    • Instead of using the industrial tape horizontally and vertically on the bottom of the box, form an ‘H’ shape with the tape closing and sticking all flaps together proves to a lot more productive.
    • While shipping irregularly shaped objects in cardboard boxes, ensure that all the void spaces are filled with packaging materials so that the weight is distributed evenly.
    • It is not advisable to reuse a piece of industrial tape, no matter how fine it appears. The strength of a seal relies widely on the adhesive property of the tape.

    Follow these tips and avoid the losses and embarrassment that comes with abrupt opening of sealed cardboard boxes during shipping!

  • How Utility Grade Masking Tape Simplifies Home Projects

    May it be a home improvement project, art work or an intricate paint job, masking tape is a must have product. In any paint project, the quality of the tape and its adhesive are the decisive factors in getting a good quality outcome.

    Utility grade masking tape serves multiple purposes, as the name suggest it is mainly used for masking, but its non-residue nature on any surface also adds utility of alabel device and the good quality of the adhesive makes it capable of sealing air vents like a duct tape too! The utility grade masking tape is easily peeled off without any residue on the surface, reducing the hassles of scrapping and preventing damages like denting, scratching that will result from scrapping of the surface.

    Blue Masking tape also known as painter’s masking tape is a solution of better quality home and industrial painting. This tape can protect any material that it is used on.

This tape is a big asset during paint jobs as it allows a professional look by helping maintain straight lines and clear edges. The premium quality of service that the blue masking tape gives makes it worth the higher price.

    Both tapes have a property that increases their utility to a very large extent – both are easy to tear. Be it a utility masking tape or painters blue tape, the easy-to-tear quality helps the user to work at a higher speed without any hang ups.
