Poly Mailers for Every Size
When shipping small items, consider using our 6 x 9-inch poly mailers. Keep in mind the size of your product in its ready-to-ship state when measuring mailers. You want to be sure you are accounting for any additional length or width gained with your product packaging, including any final touches such as tissue paper or add-ons.
If you are worried that there might be too much space for your small items, you can compare poly bags or poly bubble mailers. We recommend using a simple poly mailer as you can always add or remove padding - this adds a level of customization depending on the different types of products that your business sells. There are additional precautions to take when shipping fragile items, so keep that in mind when measuring your poly mailers.
You don’t need a cardboard box to keep your larger items protected during the shipping process. Our poly bags range in all different sizes, with our largest mailer measuring at 19 x 24. These mailers are flexible enough to work with bulkier clothes, allowing room for folding - though you’ll want to keep your package as flat as you can and give your product a bit of wiggle room.
Now that you’ve learned how to measure mailers, recall why the right-sized packaging is essential and important to make sure your products arrive safely to your customers. Whether big or small, we have you covered with a variety of sizes for all of your shipping needs.
