This is a great buy. I can even cut and tape along the seams and fashion a larger mailer to ship bigger items without feeling that my packaging has become too expensive. Typically I use paper padded envelopes, but these plastic mailers seem more sturdy and less easy to tear. With the paper ones, I was worried the flap wouldn't stick and I would tape over them, but with these, the adhesive seems very secure (although I do still use tape out of habit). I only wish that the larger sizes were as much of a bargain as these smaller ones. I will definitely buy more. They are the least expensive bubble mailers I've found yet. I wouldn't ship anything breakable in these mailers, but they are great for books, booklets, cards, and other paper items.
Although not as thick as more expensive bubble envelopes, the finish on the paper covering over the plastic bubbles has a quality sheen to it I liked. Could have had a bit more air in the bubbles, but it was SO reasonably priced, I was okay with using a little bit of paper inside before I slid my books into the envelope.
My bad. I THOUGHT this was a bubble envelope. But since "I" made the mistake, what it is is just fine. I put my own padding into the envelope, then this plastic coated covering protects the items safely in good weather and bad. I would recommend this item, IF you don't need a BUBBLE envelope, but just a plastic PROTECTIVE covering.
These bubble mailers really work, no matter which size you get. The bigger the size the better since they dont stretch well but really protect the package. Have been selling for quite awhile and never had a broken package. Book's, CD's, anything fragile are great with these mailers. The plastic is worth the price since the weight savings during postage more than pays for them. Thats what everyone forgets, the initial investment will pay in the overall profit. Couple cents spent on plastic saves around 10-25 cents on postage. adhesives work great on outer covering so no lost postage or address labels. Will definitely buy again from Oversock.com!
