The Facts on Paper Mailers

Paper mailing bags are the eco friendly alternative to plastic mailing bags. With the plastic packaging tax fast approaching it is more important than ever to focus on reducing your company’s plastic use.


Our paper mailer range are made of 100% of virgin kraft paper. Kraft paper is renowned for its superior strength due to its reduced lignin content and high sulphur ratio. The chemical process in creating the pulp does not require extensive bleaching like other paper, which decreases the papers strength and increases manufacturing costs. Its lightweight design reduces any further shipping costs and the flexible design avoids using surplus material whilst offering maximum protection.

Environmentally conscious:

All of our mailers are fully recyclable, compostable and biodegradable. Furthermore, the paper is sourced from sustainable forests dramatically reducing its environmental impact.


We offer personalisation on our paper mailer range to help you maintain your brand identity. Furthermore, the ink used are water based and non-toxic.


The range of paper mailers conform to Reach, SVHC and food contact regulations. As such they can be used for a range of industries, from pharmaceutical to catering.

The recent boom in e-commerce is creating a large demand for reliable packaging. Paper mailers offer you a high quality of shipping whilst reducing surface area, weight and costs compared to other classic e-commerce packaging such as corrugated boxes.
