If I were to say, “I sent you a package – it'll be there Thursday” what do you picture? Was it a mailperson knocking on your door holding a box? That makes sense, boxes have been the standard packing method for consumer products for years. While there are specific circumstances where a box might be the ideal solution for your packing needs, do not underestimate the impact a mailer can have on you and your customers.
Mailers are an excellent opportunity to save time and money while not sacrificing payload safety, customization options, or the environment. While it is not a cure-all, mailers should be a big part of your pack out process. As you read further, we encourage you to think outside the box.
So how do mailers stack up against their stackable box counterparts? Do they really offer anything significant over boxes?
Mailers are also available in several different shapes, sizes, colors, and customization options allowing you to perfectly pair your mailers to your unique products and brand. If you are still worried about your products arriving safely, mailers again have you covered with padded and cushioned interior options.
Let’s face it, using fewer packing materials means less waste and less of a negative impact on the world around us. But we can do better - we can lessen our footprint even further by using mailers designed with sustainability in mind.

Mailers are an excellent packaging method for small to medium size businesses that want to get e-commerce goods to their customers while reducing shipping & labor costs, as well as their negative impact on the environment. (I mean who wants to be the company hurting the planet?) But what if you are a large company who sends out thousands of packages daily?
PriorityPak® is a high-speed, semi-automated packaging machine utilizing protective cohesive packaging material.
Features, Advantages, & Benefits
The PriorityPak® sandwiches a product between two rigid cohesive paper materials and is pressure sealed, labeled, & cut to size; creating a highly customized mailer that then gets fed into a shipping bin. The mailers that are used with the PriorityPak® are the PriorityWrap® Rigid Board and the PriorityWrap® Bubble Laminate.
PriorityWrap® Rigid Board is a strong, rigid, 100% curbside recyclable, paper fiber material lined with a cohesive film that sticks to itself but not the product being protected. It comes in many standard widths and strengths with several easy open or custom width options. It protects the product by locking it in place to avoid internal shifting or movement, while the rigid material provides superior tear resistance and corner/edge impact protection.
PriorityWrap® Bubble Laminate is a lightweight, bubble wrap lined mailer, great for items requiring a bit more cushion. Much like its counterpart it comes in several standard sizes with custom size and printing options available.
