Poly Postal Packaging is a
leading manufacturer and
supplier of polythene and
Poly Postal Packaging manufacture 2 versions of a Purple Mailing Bag. Both are very popular indeed. We call them Purple Mailing Bags and Violet Mailing Bags. The Purple Mailing Bags are darker than the Violet Mailing Bags. Violet Postal Bags look great and look even better when printed with a custom design. The Violet Mailing Bags really stand out from the crowd with their vibrant colour. Due to the special polythene we use, our Violet Mailing Bags are also lightweight and strong. Postage costs will be reduced when using a strong lightweight mailing bag. We manufacture the Violet Postal Bags on site here in the UK, as we do all our mailing bags. The Violet Mailing Bags are manufactured from our special 3 layer COEX blended polythene film. Violet Purple on the outside, a middle unseen layer of white and then black on the inside of the bags. The Postal Bags are glossy on the outside. We specially treat the film in the manufacturing process so that the glue on the lip sticks permanently as it should and to ensure that the polythene film accepts stamps and your address labels etc.
The Violet Mailing Bags are manufactured at 50mu / micron which is classed as a light duty film and so is very light weight, yet still retains great puncture resistance and strength as it is made from 3 layers of film. The mailing bags are 100% Recyclable. If you need bags for items with sharp edges and heavy in weight then ideally you should be looking at our Heavy Duty Mailing Bags.
There are 10 popular sizes that we keep in stock for immediate despatch
Advice & Usage Guide
Use; The bags will arrive folded or laid flat in an outer Carton. Once you unpack the mailing bags, simply slide or drop your product into the mailing bag. The best method for sealing the mailing bag is to then lay it on a flat surface, lip/glue facing up. Peel off the release tape from the lip which covers the glue and then fold the lip over onto the body of the bag. We strongly advise that you only fold the lip over to where it naturally wants to fold to and no further. If you fold the lip right over and seal it, lets say half way down the bag, then there is a chance that the glue will not form a perfect bond and the bags could come open. We specially treat the mailing bags in the direct area where the lip folds over to as this helps with the bond formed by the glue migrating into the film.
Storage; We recommend that mailing bags with Permanent Tape are stored at a temperature of 15 - 20 degrees and 50% relative Humidity. If the ambient temperature falls to less than zero - 5 degrees then you should ensure that you have a means of warming the mailing bags in use. This because the very cold temperature hardens the glue and so it takes longer to form a bond with the film.
Extra Padding?; If you feel that you could do with a bit more protection for your products in transit due to them being fragile or delicate, then why not try our bubble inserts with these mailing bags. You don’t even need to buy the same qty to match as you can pick and use when you feel you need to using bubble lining when shipping your goods! Alternatively we stock bubble wrap and boxes.
