    Postal packaging 4th Dec 17 at 5:32 PM
    Does anyone have any recommendations for eco-friendly postal packaging?
    I'm making paper-based products no bigger than A4 size, but most places want you to buy 100s at a time, which I don't really need at the mo.

    Ebay has plenty of sellers of packaging supplies, selling in quantities from 1 to 10,000.

    What do you need as packaging?paper envelopes, padded envelopes?

    Poundland usually sell some bits. They!!!8217;ll envelopes have a4 sized boxes. But they!!!8217;ll work out more exspensive than buying in bulk.....

    I was hoping for something that would not allow water to seep through and ruin the paper inside. And something that looked a bit more special that a standard envelope.
    I looked at boxes, but it works out expensive.

    How about an A4 (or slightly bigger) plastic mailer with a sheet of A4 card inside to act as a stiffener to protect what you're sending? Mailers come in lots of colours, not just black or grey, so might provide the 'special' touch you are hoping for.

    It's worth asking local printers if they have any A4 offcuts of card which are surplus to requirements. They are often quite happy to give them away just to get rid of them.
