I’m often asked what I use to package my clothing for dispatch and to show how I go about it. So I’ve made a short video (below).
There is no right or wrong way to do this and I’m simply sharing how I do it. I use a practical, no frills method, simply using Poly Mailers. For larger, heavier bundles I would use a box. Some people like to pre-wrap, or pre-bag the clothing before they go in to the Poly Mailer for extra protection, as I show in the video the Poly Mailers we use are very strong and other than the occasional use of reinforcement tape, I don’t double bag.
A follower suggested that using a resealable ‘freezer bag’ for a single item which can be shipped as a large letter, is a good way to squeeze out any excess air before putting the item in the poly mailer. I think this is a good idea, however we have always simply reinforced the mailer with tape in areas that air may get in, after squeezing any excess air out.
I don’t discuss this in the video, however I’ve also been asked how I package shoes for dispatch. For general shoes and trainers etc I use the Poly Mailer, but in this case I will pre-wrap each shoe individually to prevent them from rubbing together. For more expensive and nicer shoes I will use a box with plenty of padding.
For more sturdy caps, such as baseball caps, it is better to use a box with lots of padding for protection. This will ensure the cap is not squashed in transit.
I have also included links to the Mailers that we use below:
