Proper Packaging for a Safe Shipment
When choosing the proper packaging for the items you need to assess the materials being packaged. Consider the shape, weight and solidity of the items when deciding which packaging would be best for the job. You want your completed package to be sturdy and labeling to be visible for whatever may happen on its journey.
Choose the Proper Outer Package
If you are mailing documents you may consider many factors, such as the need for waterproofing, rigidity and tamper proof seals.
Nylon Mailers are tear resistant and are lighter weight than most mailers saving money on shipping costs.
Jiffy Rigi Mailers are rigid to help prevent creasing of documents and have a tear strip for easy opening and security.
Tyvek Tamper Evident Mailers are 10 times the strength of standard paper envelopes and offer a security feature (when broken, reveals the word "OPENED" in red on the flap).
Poly Mailers are durable (puncture and tear resistant), water and dirt resistant.
Chipboard Flat Mailers offer rigidity (no stiffeners needed) and a clean look for presentation.
Standard Mailers are an economical way to ship your documents.
Mailing Tubes are sturdy and perfect for long documents and pictures.
When mailing items that need to be boxed you should consider the shape, weight, solidity and how fragile the objects are. The objective is to get your package from point A to point B with as little shifting and damage as possible.
Make sure the box that you choose is the correct size and the flaps are intact. Allow 2-3 inches from the item to the walls or corners of the box when choosing a box. Fill any void with cushioning such as, bubble cushioning, air bags, crumpled paper or packaging peanuts.
Heavier items should be put in double or triple wall boxes.
Wrap each fragile item separately with bubble cushioning or foam sheets. Use corrugated dividers for multiple item separation. Consider double boxing very fragile items and add cushioning between boxes.
If you are packaging powder or liquids, be sure to use a sturdy bag and seal it shut before inserting it in your box. Make sure that the bag is water proofed by sealing it with a bag sealer.
Items that are not fragile may be put together.
Parts for objects should be bagged together so that they do not get lost.
Be sure to cushion any pointed edges when packaging.
If you are shipping anything hazardous make sure that you package it to regulation standards and label it properly.
When sealing your carton shut use 2 inch wide tape (minimum). Choose either pressure sensitive, water activated or for sturdier seal reinforced water activated tape to secure your carton. Do not use scotch, duct or cellophane tape to seal your package closed. Use the H Tape Method when sealing your box, as it creates a sturdy seal.
Do not put any string on the outside of your package.
Make sure you mark your finished product with the proper labels that will show your return address and the receiver’s address properly. If you are shipping anything hazardous or expediting your container, mark it with the correct labels. Make sure that the labels are centered and not over hanging the ends of the package.
Always add the proper postage.
