How to choose packaging products for shipping your valuable items safely?

by Ranjani Venkataraman on March 02, 2022

Though we have digital modes of communication these days, still not everything can be done digitally. Say, if you want to order online food, the process is digitized but the delivery has to be done physically in a packaging.

Similarly, though we sign electronic documents, not all documents can be exported that way. So, we rely on packaging supplies that come with specifications that suit our diverse requirements.

Be it your certificates, most memorable photographs or any important office document, all these need to be packaged properly or else they undergo wear and tear during shipping.

What are some of the options we have to safe packaging?

#Board back envelopes

Board back envelopes come with a hard card board backing that is sturdy for packing books, certificates, magazines and other items that weigh heavier.

It pains to see our delicate photographs getting bent while shipping and to save them, these envelopes come with a ‘please do bend’ print on the front. This way they provide maximum protection for your pictures to arrive safely.

Items sent through these envelopes are not visible through the material and so they are mainly used by online businesses and professional firms.

#White envelopes

For small and light items, mailing envelopes will suffice. They are cost effective and compact for couriers to transport. They come with self seals so just peel the shutter and seal it after putting the documents inside. This saves you some money on tapes for sealing the package.

#Mailing bags

Mailing bags are best when you want to pack gift or craft items through post. They are self sealing, water resistant and light weight that makes them suitable for shipping. These bags can be easily written on and so don’t require any address labels to write on them.
