Custom Poly Mailer Bags: The First Thing a Customer Sees

Upon receiving the product a consumer has purchased, the first thing they see is the mailer bag. You want the customer to know what the package is and where it’s coming from at first glance. This requires branding on the packaging itself. Every time a package is shipped to a customer, it’s an opportunity for you to reinforce your branding with custom printed poly mailer bags from Brown & Pratt. Additionally, people are more likely to shop with you again when you use packaging that appeals to the consumer and intrigues them!  


What is a Poly Mailer?

Poly mailers are double-layered, laminated shipping bags that are lighter and cheaper to ship than corrugated boxes and are easily customizable through printing.

There are at least a dozen different types of poly mailer bags including seven or eight different standard polyethylene thicknesses depending on the application and shipping requirements. You can tuck gussets into the bag, either into the side or into the bottom of the bag to make the bag more three dimensional.

Poly mailer bags can come with seven or eight different styles of handles depending on the customer’s budget and needs, and whether it’s a shipping bag or merchandise retail bag.

Additionally, companies that do a lot of product shipping note that storing poly mailer bags takes up a lot less room than storing the same number of corrugated cardboard boxes.

What Advantages do Poly Mailer Bags Offer?

Custom printed poly mailers, up to four colors, allow companies to extend their brand all the way to home delivery and are typically less expensive than custom printing on corrugated cardboard boxes because the tooling costs are less for poly mailers.

Higher quality printing results are obtained with poly mailers than corrugated cardboard boxes. Poly mailers start out white and accept ink better than cardboard, which means colors come out more vivid than a box that starts out brown. Graphics and text printed on poly mailers is crisper and cleaner than printing on brown cardboard boxes.

Can Poly Mailers be Custom Printed?

Poly mailers can come a wider range of options than cardboard boxes. Poly mailer bags can have different kinds of handles or no handles, can be drawstring bags, t-shirt bags, have gussets added for a more three-dimensional appearance, and so on.

Primary Reasons Customers Choose Poly Mailers?

Many customers choose poly mailers over boxes or other more rigid forms of packaging because they are lighter and reduce shipping costs. They are especially good for items that are less susceptible to damage while also typically costing less per bag than the cost per box including products such as apparel, jewelry, and other small items.

Environmentally conscious companies know that poly mailers take up less room on transportation vehicles than boxes, meaning each vehicle can carry more items, resulting in a net decrease in carbon emissions from transportation.

What are Minimum Quantities When Custom Printing Poly Bags?

Minimum quantities for custom printed poly bags are going to vary by supplier as well as by printing specs (complexity of artwork, number of colors, and so on). With one-color printing and simple, small artwork, a minimum quantity of 1,000 bags is possible. Larger, more complex artwork and more than one color may require a minimum order of 5,000 bags. With three or more colors, the minimum quantity may increase to 10,000. More colors, larger artwork, and more complex artwork drives minimum quantities higher.
