                     What size bubble wrap do you need?

This question is one of the most common question we get when dealing with custom bubble wrap packaging.

In our last blog post: "Bubble Wrap & Foam bundle Options", we gave you an idea of what types of heights and slits will work best for your products.

 As for this Blog post we hope to give you more indepth infomation on the "size" of the bubble wrap you will need to protect your product during the shipping process.

Top 3 things you need to know:

1) "Width" of the Bubble Wrap Roll: What size product are you packaging? Depending on your dimensions, that will determine what size roll width you will need. Many options with bundles and our Bundle Height Diagram will give you a better idea of what we can offer you.

2) "Length" of the Bubble Wrap Roll: What you are wrapping? The length of each bundle will determine what you will need to purchase to accomidate your quantity for production. In some cases there are minimum rates and that is where you can request a quote to learn more.

3) "Size " of the actual Bubble: The size of the bubble refers to the height of the bubble as shown in the diagram below. Also listed on the diagram is the diameter and what typically people use that size bubble for.

The standard bubble heights we carry and keep in stock include: 1/16, 1/8, 3/16, 5/16 and 1/2". The Bubble Size Chart below gives you a visual and a brief idea of what type of product should go with that size bubble. If you are still a little unsure of what specific size you need, we would be happy to send you a "Sample Kit" with all of our products or if you just need a bubble sheet sample "Request a Sample".

Bubble Wrap Size ChartOne of our stock items include the 3/16 bubble out bags with a lip and tape. These bags have an easy seal and typically work well with cushioning items that are light to medium weight products. If you have specific bundle length and height options we have the ability to Slit all our bundles.
