Royal Mail PiP Boxes

Royal Mail introduced the Pricing in Proportion sizing in 2006, in reaction to the growing number of ecommerce parcels being sent through the post. Not only would businesses need to weigh their packages, but the dimensions of the package would influence the price too. Today, there is a huge range of boxes that are suitable for sending via Royal Mail, allowing businesses to choose the size and shape that is most suitable for the products in the order, and to get the best possible price – saving them money on their orders.

Cardboard PiP boxes are strong and durable, and when secured with packing tape, are unlikely to become loose for items to fall out. In terms of creating a good impression for the business, PiP boxes are a far more presentable, professional solution than mailing bags, and they can easily be branded by the simple addition of bespoke tape. This is an affordable, effective packaging solution for businesses that want to build brand recognition, but to keep costs low.

Our range of PiP boxes are delivered flat packed to save space, they are easy to assemble, and they are available in a range of different sizes within the specifications that Royal Mail stipulates. By sending as Large Letter, or Small Parcel, businesses can keep costs low, as well as protecting the customer’s order.

As you’d expect with a packaging company that has sustainability at its core, our Royal Mail PiP boxes are made from 100% recycled corrugated paper. Not only are they made from recycled material, but they are easy to recycle too – they can be added to household recycling, and they are both biodegradable and compostable, allowing recipients to safely dispose of the box however they choose.

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
