Bubble Envelopes FAQs
What is the postal rate for bubble envelopes?
Macfarlane packaging stock bubble envelopes in a range of common sizes, most of which can be sent via the post.
Postal rates can vary based on several factors, including the size, weight, and destination of your mail. It is essential to check with Royal Mail or the postal service you plan to use for the most up-to-date and accurate information on postage rates for bubble envelopes.
Rates also differ based on the class of service you choose (e.g., First Class, Second Class, Next Day, Signed For) and whether you are sending domestically or internationally. Additionally, business customers may have different rates than individual consumers.
To determine the current postal rates for sending bubble envelopes in the UK, visit the Royal Mail website or contact them directly. Your local Post Office can also provide detailed information on the postage rates both generally, and for your specific parcel.
What are bubble envelopes called?
Bubble envelopes are also commonly referred to by several other names. Some of the alternative names for bubble envelopes include:
- Bubble mailers
- Padded mailers
- Bubble-lined envelopes
- Bubble wrap mailers
- Bubble bags
- Cushioned mailers
- Protective mailers
- Bubble-padded envelopes
These names are used interchangeably to describe envelopes or mailers with a bubble wrap lining designed to provide protection for fragile or delicate items during shipping. The primary feature of these envelopes is the interior bubble lining, which helps cushion and protect the contents from damage during transit.
Can bubble envelopes be recycled?
The recyclability of bubble envelopes can vary depending on the specific materials used in their construction. Bubble envelopes often consist of a combination of materials, including paper, plastic, and bubble wrap, that must be separated before they can be recycled.
Here’s how recyclability typically works for these components:
- Paper: The outer layer of some bubble envelopes is made of paper, which is generally recyclable. However, this depends on the specific requirements of your recycling service provider. Some recycling service providers may accept paper envelopes with plastic bubble lining, while others may not. It is thus essential to check to determine whether these paper-based bubble envelopes can be recycled.
- Plastic: The bubble lining in bubble envelopes is typically made of plastic, usually polyethylene. This type of plastic may not be accepted in standard kerbside recycling programs because it is a low-density plastic. However, some recycling centres may accept it through specialised plastic film recycling programs. Again, it is crucial to check with your recycling service provider or local recycling centre for guidance on recycling plastic bubble wrap.
All Macfarlane Packaging bubble mailers already include some recycled content. Additionally, Macfarlane Packaging also offers eco-friendly and easily recycled alternatives.
