What is a Book Wrap Mailer?

A book wrap mailer is an efficient self-sealing postal wrap designed specifically for ecommerce shipments. Also known as a postal wrap or book wraps, they are a flat corrugated cardboard postal mailer that features integrated retention flaps and a peel and seal strip at one end.

How do you use a Book Wrap?

Book wraps are simple to use, and very efficient.

Book wraps come in a range of sizes
  1. Lay the wrap flat side down, with the retention flaps face up.
  2. Open the retention flaps and place the item in between the flaps.
  3. Wrap the body of the book wrap around the item you intend to ship, ensuring it's a snug fit so that the item inside is held firmly in place.
  4. Peel off the release paper from the sealing strip and apply pressure along the length of the glue strip to ensure a good seal when closing the wrap.

Amazon use Book Wraps

If you've ever ordered a small product off of Amazon, chances are you've already had something delivered to you in a book wrap mailer (also known as corrugated postal wraps). Amazon love using book wraps because they are so efficient:

  • At only 2 ply thick, book wraps take up minimal storage and are easy to palletise.
  • They're versatile, you can pack multiple loose items into one book wrap thanks to their variable height.
  • They're rigid, and can be sized to fit through majority of UK letterboxes.
  • They feature overhanging on each end, and offer great of damage protection.
  • Book wraps are super fast to pack.

There is a book placed on top of the book wraps that is about the wild birds of britain and europe, and features an illustration of a kestral on the front cover, a bull finch and what appears to be a blue jay.
