A "must have" for internet sellers
on March 12, 2012
OK, So you sell on the internet and you can't find that jack-of-all-trades shipping package, some are too big, some too small. Well, you need to add this to your list!
I started out my internet selling last year with the #2 size bubble mailer (8.5x12?), which was the right size for paperback books and single or multiple disc DVDs and console games. They worked great, but were too small when an item started to get a bit thick (like a DVD box set), and they wouldn't hold a hard back book. I finally worked through them and I got these hoping that they could hold things the previous couldn't.
So, for a couple tenths of an ounce more, these seem almost twice as big! I tried one on a small paperback book, just fold it over (in half) and it ships securely!
Learning time: Kraft is not specifically a brand, Kraft is a paper production process that creates a stronger paper (Kraft process). So, don't think that you're buying Kraft brand, because it's only a indication of the TYPE of paper used.
UPDATE: OK, I've shipped out a bunch of items with these now. this is larger than the last size I ordered, and I have had zero problems. However, I have had to fold the envelope over on all but one shipment, and I didn't realize how BIG these were before ordering. That's my fault though.
