Businesses that want their shipping supplies to stand out understand the importance of branded packaging through custom printing of shipping supplies materials. As poly mailer bags continue to rise in popularity as the go-to way to send a huge range of products to customers, it makes sense to custom print business branding onto the bag. To further extend and reinforce company branding, smart businesses are also wrapping the products in the bag in custom printed tissue paper. This is a win-win combination that’s getting results for companies across the nation and around the world.

A Selection of the Many Benefits of Poly Mailer Bags

A growing number of companies across the USA, from small to large, are realizing how the benefits of using poly mailer bags for shipping products to customers make for a compelling business case. The largest potential positive impact on a business of switching from cardboard boxes to a poly mailer bag whenever possible is significant savings on both packaging manufacturing costs and shipping costs. 

A polybag weighs a fraction of what its corresponding cardboard weighs. The savings gained on each individual shipment may look negligible, but they quickly add up in a surprisingly short amount of time depending on the volume of products your company ships. Bubble lining for more fragile items can be added to poly mailer bags without any increase to their overall weight for shipping purposes.

Although the costs of making/purchasing poly mailer bags will vary widely by vendor, there ought to be a lower per-unit cost to make/purchase poly mailer bags compared to cardboard boxes. When you add the additional factor of custom printed branding, the price point for customizing poly mailers is typically substantially lower than customizing boxes.

The second big impact of this switch to a poly mailer bag product is more indirect but nonetheless important when it comes to your company’s eco-friendly reputation. Shipping more products in poly mailer bags takes up far less room on delivery trucks. This translates into more efficient use of delivery truck fleets, which in turn means less fossil fuel consumption and fewer greenhouse gas emissions driving global warming and climate change. 

Custom Printing Business Branding onto Poly Mailer Bags

The impacts of utilizing custom printing to extend your business branding to your shipping supplies cannot be underestimated. Customers love great packaging, so why not make the most of every poly mailer bag used? 

The brand possibilities for what you want to include are endless but could include your company’s logo, your website, a special message to the customer, a QR code that sends them to a landing page of your website with a special offer or discount, a hashtag that leads them to social media campaigns, contests, and offers. Exercise your creative muscles and do something different that will wow every customer who receives a product delivery from you.

Adding Custom Printed Tissue Paper to Extend Branding Further

If you want to extend your company’s branding even further, utilize custom printed tissue paper to wrap products being sent to customers in poly mailer bags. You can create all sorts of complementary synergies between the branding carried on the outside of the poly mailer bag and the tissue paper around the products inside. If the bag branding is complex, the tissue paper used inside it might be a simple repeated pattern of the company logo. Once again, however, the possibilities are numerous in terms of what you want to convey on the tissue paper. And because tissue paper is extremely lightweight, there’s little or no impact on the overall package weight and shipping costs. Here are some of the specification options for custom printed tissue paper at Brown and Pratt:
