Posted by Sam Beyaz on

With Thanksgiving just around the corner, there’s no better time to start thinking about how to prepare your mailing station for Black Friday. The day after Thanksgiving is the biggest shopping day of the year, and you want to be ready! Here are five tips and tricks to make sure you have everything you need before things get crazy. 

  1. Stock up on wholesale mailers
  2. Organize your mailroom
  3. Establish best practices
  4. Try a test run
  5. Remember to breathe! 

Sold Out

For customers and business owners alike, those two words can feel like the end of the world. Selling out of merchandise on Black Friday can be a good thing, but running out of poly mailers to ship your merchandise to the customers can be a nightmare. Now is the best time to shop around for wholesale mailers to ensure you have a plentiful stock for Black Friday. 

It’s also essential to select the correct type of mailers for your business. Luckily, there are enough styles of poly mailers to choose from that you’re guaranteed to find what you need! 

Everything in its Place

Once you’ve replenished your stock of poly mailers, it’s time to make sure everything is in its place before the big day. While you’re shopping around for wholesale mailers, purchase any organization materials as well. Make sure to take measurements before buying any shelves or bins, and plan to place items in locations that are easy to access. Taking time to prepare beforehand will enable you to have the materials you need within easy reach while you’re organizing items for shipment. 

As Easy As 1, 2, 3

There is no better time to create a plan of attack than when you’re getting ready for Black Friday. Now is the perfect time to establish best practices for yourself and your employees to ensure that everything runs smoothly under stress. If employees typically oversee the packaging and shipping throughout the year, sit down with them to find out if they have any tips and tricks. It may also be useful to meet as a team and work through any possible kinks together. 

Play Pretend

Once you’ve created your list of best practices, take an hour or two to set up a trial run for Black Friday. Make sure that the poly mailers you’ve ordered have arrived, any storage containers are in place, and employees are prepared for their roles. 

Take a Breather

You’ve shopped for your wholesale mailers. Your padded envelopes, tape, and poly mailers have arrived. Everything is organized. Your employees are trained. You’ve gone through a test run, and you’ve worked out every issue that could arise. Now what? 

Take a break! Relax! Don’t spend the rest of the time stressing out over things you probably can’t control. We have complete faith that you’ll knock all of your goals out of the park.
