Postal Packaging

Sending customer orders through the post is an additional cost to your business, and so you need to ensure that you have the best type of postal packaging for the job. Lightweight is key, to minimise the costs, but you also need to think of the practicalities – do you need additional protection for fragile items, how quickly can the packaging be assembled, and so on, as well as complying with pricing conventions such as Pricing In Proportion (PiP).

Our range of postal packaging has all the options that you might possibly need, from padded envelopes right through to Royal Mail PiP boxes and crash lock eCommerce boxes, and mail bags. They’re all easy to use, with self-adhesive seals where appropriate, making it simple for your team to get those orders out the door as quickly as possible.  

We pride ourselves on supplying packaging materials that have as little environmental impact as possible, and as such all of our cardboard packaging – such as capacity envelopes, book wrap mailers and PiP boxes is made from 100% recycled materials. Where we use plastics for items such as mail bags, we use as much recycled material as possible, and ensure that they are suited to being recycled again.

If you’re looking for even more sustainable alternatives to plastic, then our eco-friendly range of postal packaging has items such as corrugated honeycomb envelopes (an alternative to plastic bubble envelopes) and compostable mail bags that can replace our recycled mail bags.

What is a standard mailing bag?

Our standard polythene bags are our best value mailing sacks, available in a large selection of sizes to suit a variety of products and purposes. The 55 micron thick grey material grants a reasonable degree of strength while remaining very lightweight to minimise postal costs. Your postage and packing outgoings can be accurately calculated thanks to the sizing table which corresponds with Royal Mail’s PiP guidelines. Intuitive practicality is embedded into the design with the 40mm lip that includes a peel-&-seal strip. This feature eliminates the need for tape, simplifying the whole packing process for increased efficiency and ease. These qualities are indispensable within a busy dispatch operation, promoting the fast functioning of an ecommerce business. Moreover, tape dispensers or cutting tools can be removed from a pack station, aiding organisation. To display delivery information, these standard mailing bags are commonly purchased with items from our comprehensive range of multi-purpose labels. Are the polythene bags eco-friendly? The grey polythene is made from recycled materials, making it a low-cost and environmentally friendly option. The extremely light weight further promotes the protection of our planet as it means that more parcels can be loaded onto a single vehicle, hence economising that space and reducing the overall carbon footprint of the process. It is worth noting that, as a result of the recycled content, the shade of grey may vary slightly from the images. Can you reuse a mailing bag? These plastic mailing bags are made with a minimum amount of recycled material to suit their single-use purpose and hence, are not designed for reuse. However, there is nothing stopping a customer from reusing a grey mailing bag if it retains its high quality condition. What are grey mailing bags used for? Thanks to the wide range of sizes supplied by Kite, the standard postal pouches can carry a broad selection of products, making them suitable for various industries. The large letter sizes are perfect for sending out clothing, literature or textiles while the larger parcels are typically used for bulky or boxed items. The opaque exterior renders the envelopes suitable for sending out confidential materials too. A polythene mailing sack is a great universal product with a variety of uses, making it an ideal versatile resource for companies sending out a range of different items. The flat-pack and ultra-thin arrival aids this end by conserving warehouse space. recycling code 4 Click here for our recycling guide
