Packing Peanuts & Bubble Rolls

SORT BY:
Shipping can be a rough process for many items so it's important to protect the packages and contents as much as possible. Packing peanuts settle around the item and provide cushioning to reduce damage from shaking and impact. Depending on the items you are shipping, you may also use paper or bubble rolls for more insulation. Packing tape helps seal boxes securely to further protect items during shipping.

Benefits of Packing Peanuts
Packing peanuts are usually made of Styrofoam™ or a similar material and have a three-dimensional S-shape that allows the individual peanuts to interlock together creating a reliable cushion. Styrofoam resists breaking and crushing to a certain extent and absorbs impacts to reduce damage. Some styles of packing noodles are shaped like a curved cylinder rather than an S.

Loose-fill peanuts are extremely lightweight, so using them to fill a package doesn't significantly increase the weight and associated shipping costs. Traditional packing peanuts are white, though there are also other colors available. You can find anti-static varieties as well as food-grade loose-fill peanuts. Some styles come with a dispenser box that makes it easy to pour the peanuts into the shipping box.

Consider Using Packing Paper for Additional Protection
Packing paper is another shipping material that you can use instead of or along with peanuts. Paper is extremely flexible and can be used to line the top and bottom of the box or wrap the items individually. Crumpled paper provides additional cushioning without adding a lot of extra weight. You can find several paper varieties. Heavy kraft or butcher paper works well for large shipments whereas thin lightweight newsprint may be a better choice for delicate and fragile items.

Some paper comes in individual sheets whereas other styles come on a large roll so you can cut the exact amount needed. Most individual sheets have dimensions between 2 feet and 3 feet per side. Paper rolls are generally between 1 foot and 2 feet wide.

What Are the Benefits of Bubble Rolls?
Bubble rolls use sealed pockets of air to provide protective cushioning for fragile items. You can find several varieties with larger or smaller air pockets, and some sheets that are self-adhesive for easy use. A large bubble roll is generally used for larger items and delicate items require smaller air bubbles. A perforated bubble roll makes it easy to measure and tear off the exact amount of material needed and stores excess bubble roll in an efficient way.

Are Packing Materials Environmentally Friendly?
You can find eco-friendly versions of loose-fill peanuts, paper, and bubble rolls. Most environmentally-friendly options are easy to recycle, such as packing paper, and some are made partially or entirely of recycled material. Peanuts may be reused numerous times, and some are made from a biodegradable material that can be composted. You can also find bubble rolls made from recycled material.

Are Packing Materials Available in Bulk?
Most packing materials including peanuts, paper, and bubble rolls are sold in large quantities. Paper or bubble rolls usually contain at least 50 feet of material, with some being hundreds of feet long. Packing peanuts are usually sold by volume, with most packages containing at least 1 cubic foot of material.
