How the Right Packaging Supplies Save You Money

How the Right Packaging Supplies Save You Money

Aren’t sure if you’re using the right packaging supplies for your budget? The right protective packaging will help you save money in the long run by preventing shipping damage and dissatisfied customers. Continue reading to learn why you should buy bubble, foam, or spunbond packaging.

Saving Money With Packaging Supplies

Evaluate Your Shipping Needs

How fragile are the items you’re shipping? How much of your packaging is functional versus aesthetic? Answering these types of questions will help you save money on packaging supplies. For example, you may not need as much protective packaging for items that are lightweight and not fragile. Even just making one small change can save you a lot of money in the long run.

Aren’t sure what you absolutely need to keep your items safe during shipping? Give us a call! We’d be more than happy to help you evaluate your shipping needs.

Reduce Risk of Shipping Damage

Using the right packaging materials reduces the risk of shipping damage. You have to be prepared for shipped items to be jostled (or even dropped) before they reach their destinations. Even if you stamp packages as fragile, there’s no guarantee that they’ll be handled gently. The best way to protect items during shipping is to get the right shipping supplies.

Thick bubble wrap prevents impact damage while thin bubble protects items from scratches and scrapes. Different products will need different bubble sizes. We recommend using more than one bubble wrap size for items that are fragile and/or valuable. For example, you’ll need small bubble wrap to protect a TV screen from being scratched during shipping. Layering large bubble wrap on top will also protect the device from impact damage. To streamline your shipping process, ask us about getting bags on a roll for your facility.

Increase Customer Satisfaction

Nothing is more disappointing to your customers than waiting several weeks for their orders, only to find damaged items that will have to be returned. Not only does shipping damage cost you money, but it can also affect customer satisfaction and your online reputation. Online reviews can mean the difference between attracting new customers and losing the ones you already have. Save money and protect your livelihood by making sure shipping items arrive at their destination in one piece.

Protect Electronics from Electrostatic Discharge

If you are shipping electronics, you’ll want to use anti-static bubble. Anti-static bubble bags and sheets protect electronics from static electricity during shipping. This pink bubble wrap is different from other types of packing material because it is designed to slowly and safely dissipate electrostatic charge. Electrostatic discharge (ESD) not only damages electrical components, but can harm human workers. Thankfully, ESD bubble wrap can be converted to custom sheets, bags, sleeves, or tubing of very long length.

Call Premier Protective Packaging

Your local office supply store won’t have all the packaging supplies you need for your company. Also, keep in mind that protective packaging isn’t “one size fits all.” For example, while bubble bags are perfect for small items like jewelry, they can’t be used for shipping furniture.

We offer a wide range of products for your company’s shipping needs. That way, you can get all of your packaging materials from the same retailer. Small local chains can’t compete because they don’t offer the same diversity of products. Since we sell packaging supplies in bulk, you’ll also be able to save money in the long run.

We offer a range of protective packaging for your company, including packing foam and plastic bubble wrap. To request a quote for packaging supplies, call Premier Protective Packaging at (616) 791-7400. If there is a custom item you think we can help you with, contact us!
