Choosing the Best Packaging Filler: Protecting Your Product

Choosing the Best Packaging Filler: Protecting Your Product

When it comes to shipping your product, one of the most important things is to ensure that it is safely packed. Getting your product safely to your destination is incredibly important for customer satisfaction and repeat buyers. 

Whether you are shipping wine or something else, choosing the right filler can help you to protect your product during transit. Let’s look at some of the different options in terms of filler materials. 

Bubble Wrap

One of the most popular materials for filling space in packaging is bubble wrap. It is a classic that also gives some satisfaction to recipients by popping the little air-filled bubbles. An advantage of bubble wrap is that it is relatively easy to use to wrap items. Of course, one of the negatives is that it is not necessarily the most cost-effective choice if there is a lot of void space you need to fill. However, if you prefer, Wine Shipping Boxes has a Bottle Bubble Wine Skin made to protect your bottles!

Packing Peanuts

Another effective packaging filler when it comes to shipping your product safely, packing peanuts are relatively inexpensive and make good filler material. Even if you have already protected your item with bubble wrap, a pulp wine shipper, or something else, these can be effective for filling any space left over inside your box. One negative is sustainability. While these are technically recyclable, most recycling centers are not equipped to take them. 

Biodegradable Cardboard Chips

A great alternative to more traditional filler materials, biodegradable cardboard chips are typically made from corrugated cardboard and are 100% recyclable. This is a great choice for a packaging filler as it is affordable and effective in reducing the bumps and bangs absorbed by your product in transit. 

Molded Pulp Packaging

Molded pulp trays and inserts are the perfect, environmentally friendly solution for packaging consumer products such as personal care products, gift sets, toys, candles, essential oils, and a range of items that need internal protection. Molded pulp packaging can be designed either by making a mold from an existing product, designed from 3D drawings of your product, or based on a similar design to a former packaging method. It’s eco-friendly, fits packaging perfectly, and protects your products!

Air Pillows

If you frequently order items from merchants like Amazon, you may have noticed that many items use air pillows as packaging fillers. Air pillows are exactly what they sound like – large pillows of air made from plastic that helps prevent items from moving around during transit. While efficient, they can be more difficult to find, are susceptible to bursting, and are also not eco-friendly.
