It's got the full package
These recyclable poly mailers are built to withstand the most precarious weather conditions. They’re waterproof & tear-proof, durable & conscious. Our recycled poly mailers are available in 5 sizes & come with adhesive strips for send/return.
Are recycled poly mailers fully waterproof?
Yes, they are. Our recycled poly mailers are made from highly durable LDPE foil made of at least 80% recycled plastic. This material is excellent to serve as an additional layer of protection to prevent your box from rain, water and snow.
What can I pack in a recycled poly mailer?
Recycled poly mailers can be used as an additional packing and a shipping solution on their own. These shipping bags are safe to use as primary packaging for soft goods such as clothes, textiles, bedding, and other homeware fabrics. For more delicate products, we recommend using poly mailers as a branded addition to your shipping process.

Can I print all over the recycled poly mailer?
All of our mailing bags from our poly mailer bags collection have a designated space for printing graphic elements such as logos, visuals & more. This space solely depends on the size of the mailing bag you choose. Each bag you open in our Design Studio showcases the available print space, where you can design away as you like. However, please remember that your graphic design should never cross the lines of the print space on the mock-up, which is marked with two hashed lines displaying the print size in centimetres.
E.g. The design space available for the Y90 recycled poly mailer bag with a size of 40 x 50 cm is 29 x 29 cm. Safe to say, a considerable amount of the Y90 is then available for designing.
Are there any printing limitations for the recycled poly mailer?
As of yet, we can only offer printing single-colour graphic elements. Unfortunately, complex elements such as photographs, gradients and neon colours cannot be printed due to the foil material and its paint absorption. These limitations occur due to the printing technique and the material used to produce our recyclable mailer bags.
Is the Recycled Poly Mailer matte or glossy?
Depending on the batch of recycled material it’s made of, the poly mailer can have a more glossy or matte finish. Consider ordering a sample pack to see what your Poly Mailers will look and feel like.
What are the key differences between Packhelp's mailer bags?
Packhelp’s mailer bag collection offers three different types of mailing bags, each with its own properties, printing options & features.
Which option is more sustainable? Bio or recycled?
Both eco-mailing bags from our collection were engineered to reduce your environmental impact, but the recyclable mailer bag has a one-up regarding sustainability. The biodegradable poly mailer bag is made from a mix of potato and corn starch, is industrially compostable & sourced locally. And while both mailers support a circular economy, the infrastructure for recycling is more popular and widespread than the one for industrial composting.
How do I dispose of my recycled poly mailers?
Our recycled poly mailers can be identified for recycling purposes under the Mobius Loop symbol & the LDPE 4 code. The centre of the looping arrows of the Mobius loop sign on plastic products will carry a number between 1 and 7. This number denotes the kind of plastic and the appropriate recycling method.
The LDPE is an acronym for Low-Density Polyethylene, a type of recyclable plastic. The more rigid kind of LDPE is simpler to recycle and can be done at home; however, foils and films often become contaminated by the goods they are packing, which creates further problems.
Please recycle this product according to the general guidance of the state/county you’re in. You can find more information about this here.
