How to Choose the Best Mailer Packaging
Your business budget, packaging customization, and product size all play a role when you’re looking for the best choice for your packaging. The budget may be the most significant consideration, especially for small to medium businesses that need to save on shipping costs. Company owners or marketers that are more particular about their branding will probably prioritize the customization options and adjust their expenses accordingly.
Mailers are the default packaging for e-commerce shops sending out small items like jewelry, gadgets, or arts and crafts supplies. Its envelope-like structure with a peel and seal adhesive is highly recommended for businesses that need to:
- Save on shipping costs. The less space your package consumes in a shipping truck, the lower you spend. A mailer reduces the space your package occupies and your expenses.
- Protect smaller items from damage while in transit. Choose from a waterproof poly mailer, a rigid mailer for documents, or padded bubble mailers.
- Quickly assemble a high volume of items for delivery. All mailers come with self-sealing adhesive that customers can peel off upon receipt.
Custom mailer boxes are recommended for businesses shipping various items and want these presented well upon unboxing. Mailer boxes occupy more weight and space than mailers, so this is more suitable for youif you're willing to invest in higher shipping costs.
UPrinting's online calculator lets you input the exact interior dimensions for your mailer box.

Mailer Packaging FAQs
When should I use a poly mailer for my packaging?
Use poly mailers or other mailer types if you need to save on shipping costs. Mailers are lightweight and smaller in size, so they occupy less space and weigh less than custom boxes. Shipping companies will charge you less since these won't take up a big part of their truck. Mailers are also highly recommended for when you’re sending small items in bulk.
Can I upload a print-ready file of my custom mailer box?
No, but you can request a dieline template after indicating your design specifications. We'll send you a PDF showing the flat layout of the custom mailer box. The file shows the correct placement for each side of your box.
Can I review the design before you send it to production?
Yes, you can request an online PDF proof and check it before we send it to production. We will only proceed with manufacturing the design once you have sent us your online approval.
Do you offer layout guides for the available mailer packaging products?
Yes, you can download layout templates for the different mailers, poly packing tape, and pocket folders. Go to the "Layout" tab, select the format you need, and click on the size you'll be using.
How soon can I receive my packaging and mailing products?
The arrival of your order depends on the printing time and your address. Note that we'll ship your packaging after the indicated production period. On the mailers, tape, and folders pages, go to "Estimate Shipping & Delivery" and input your ZIP code. Several arrival dates will appear based on your location.
