Poundland Padded Envelopes
Advantages: Great value, varying sizes, keep parcels safe
Like most people now a days I am always trying to make money and so I often Ebay unwanted items but this of course means that I need to buy packaging as since I am just sending it to someone else I don't want to pay a fortune for them.
These envelopes come from Poundland as the name above would suggest and you've guest it they cost £1 per packet. In our Poundland there are 3 different sizes of the envelopes available there are A4 sized where you get 3 envelopes in a pack, A5 sized envelopes where you get 6 envelopes in a pack and then an even smaller envelope where you get 8 envelopes in a pack.
I have bought both the A4 and A5 sized packs and they comes wrapped in a plastic wrapping which if you use scissors to snip along the end can be used to keep the envelopes in until you are ready to use them. The envelopes are a light brown in colour and have a layer of bubble wrap inside to make them padded. The top of them has a length of white tape along it and when you remove the white backing it is sticky underneath for you to seal the envelope.
The envelopes are great for Ebaying and I have never had anyone complain about how a package has arrived so they must be strong enough. The sticky part fastens well and feels secure but the edges of the flaps don't totally stick down so I tend to put a piece of brown tape across for extra security. The only issue is that although the biggest envelope is A4 sized there is about an inch all round which is sealed so the contents of the envelope cannot actually be A4 as it won't fit. These envelopes are really great value and are just as good as the traditional Jiffy bags but without being so expensive.
Summary: A great alternative to the Jiffy
