Poundland Padded Envelopes
Advantages: Decent value for non-bulk buyers, work perfectly
Disadvantages: Not the best value, not the hardiest brand
Poundland has been hit by the recession it's official. The photograph enclosed shows a 6 pack of medium sized envelopes, unfortunately I haven't been able to find these for a long while now, nowadays you can buy 5 medium sized envelopes as per the picture, 3 large envelopes or 7 small envelopes with your shiny pound coin, so effectively you've lost a medium sized envelope.
These bubble padded envelopes are very useful for packing valuable items you want to send in the post, I generally buy my envelopes in bulk on ebay in packs of 100 as this works out at much better value, but in extremis when i've sold something on ebay which needs to be posted urgently, the medium or large Poundland envelopes are better value than those available in Staples, Tescos or the Post Office.
In terms of packaging there is simply a plastic covering with a basic text cover stating the size of the envelopes and how many there are, the packaging looks fine and is perfectly effective for what it is.
The envelopes are brown and easy to label and the ends have a sticky adhesive paper which you remove to attach the end to the envelope.
In terms of the envelopes themselves, they are decent enough quality, the bubble wrap within the envelopes is one layer deep so these envelopes can be used for most things that aren't too heavy, I generally use the larger envelopes for books and the medium sized envelopes fit most DVD and Console games perfectly. Be careful to choose the right sized envelope as trying to fit a tricky shaped or sized package in the envelope will result in ripping as they aren't that resilient.
The envelopes are available in all Poundland stores and work out at 33p each for a large envelope, 20p each for a medium priced envelope and just under 14p each for a small one, this is decent value although it is still much cheaper if you want 50-100 envelopes to buy a box from Amazon or Ebay.
I use these when stocks are low and I have something to send urgently, they are one of the popular items on Poundland shelfs and are a reasonably high quality. They aren't the best value available but for people only wanting a handful of envelopes they are one of the better options available on the high street right now.
I've never had anyone complain about packaging on Ebay or Amazon Marketplace sales therefore I can only provide this as a testament to their reliability.
