Brown testlinerFSC certified paper made from 100% recycled fibres, brown testliner is a cost-effective paper. Testliner can be printed on and is used on all of our brown book wrap mailers. Choosing testliner reduces the carbon footprint and cost of your mailer.
White kraft linerFSC certified, bleached liner paper made from virgin pulp. White kraft liner is a good option for printing bold colours without choosing a coated paper.
E-fluteE-Flute (1.5-2.0mm) is used widely for these book wrap mailers unless your product requires extra protection. It has great crush resistance for its weight and is easy to fold. The high number of flutes per foot creates a smooth surface for printing.
B-fluteB-flute (2.5-3.5mm) is commonly used across boxes of any size. It has good crush resistance and its thickness offers extra cushioning.
R-fluteR-Flute (2.0-3.0mm) is slightly thinner (c. 20%) than B-Flute but provides similar protection. This makes it more efficient for shipping than thicker flute profiles. It also provides a flat surface for printing and is easy to fold.
Water-based inksMade with water as their primary base, these inks are designed for flexographic printing. More sustainable than solvent-based inks.
Single peel & sealOne strip of adhesive covered with a fibre-based backing paper. A single peel & seal makes fulfilment fast and helps make your packaging tamper-proof. Adding a peel & seal has minimal impact on your carbon footprint.
Double peel & sealTwo strips of adhesive covered with fibre-based backing paper. A double peel & seal makes fulfilment fast and returns easy for your customers. Adding a peel & seal has minimal impact on your carbon footprint.
Flexographic printingFlexographic printing is the most cost-effective printing process for high volumes. It's ideal for printing straightforward designs such as logos or simpler graphics and text, but some finer details can lose resolution in print.
1 colour printing1 colour printing is the most cost-effective option. Pantone colours ensure consistency for your branding.
2 colour printing2 colour printing allows for bold, high contrast designs. Pantone colours ensure consistency for your branding.
Carton boxesBelow a certain size, book wrap mailers may be packed in cardboard carton boxes and stacked onto a pallet. This protects smaller products in transit and allows for more efficient packing, reducing costs and emissions.
PalletThe majority of boxes are shipped on standard, UK-sized (1.0x1.2m) pallets to ensure ease of delivery.
Shrink wrapping and plastic strappingAny corrugated cardboard packaging stacked on pallets is secured with plastic straps to prevent movement during transit. They’re also shrink-wrapped to protect from dust and scratches. This secondary packaging has a negligible effect on a shipment’s carbon footprint and helps ensure products arrive in the best condition.
DomesticAll domestic transit (UK) is handled by road. Products produced domestically are typically dispatched and delivered 24-48 hours after production is complete.
End of life
Roadside recyclableSourceful book wrap mailers are widely recycled at the roadside, but end-users should always check with their local authority.

Book wrap mailers are mostly used by e-commerce companies to send books, magazines, DVDs and other flat, rigid products through the post. Book wrap mailers are ideal for both light and heavy products.
To assemble a book wrap mailer:
- Open up the two side flaps.
- Slot your product beneath and between them.
- Close the two slide flaps over your product.
- Use the long flap to wrap around the entire package.
- Seal with a peel & seal.
Yes! Our design team can work with you to design, ideate and prototype a bespoke solution. That said, because the side flaps can be folded at any height, you can use each book wrap mailer for multiple products. If you’re looking for standard sizes, you can choose between an A5, an A4 and an A3 mailer.
Because a book wrap mailer is a type of wrap-around packaging, it doesn’t hold the weight of the product but protects it from scuffing, dirt and surface damage. Technically, this means there is no maximum weight capacity, but we always recommend sending us an email if you’re sending items heavier than 2kg.
Store your book wrap mailers in a dry environment, away from possible sources of moisture like rain, leaks or areas of high humidity. You should also store them at a relatively constant temperature. Learn more
A peel & seal (a built-in self-adhesive strip) is the easiest and fastest way to seal a book wrap mailer. All of our mailers have this feature as standard.
Book wrap mailers are delivered flat, which is ideal for storage. They can then be easily assembled by hand.
Lead times vary based on the complexity of your design. Typically, book wrap mailers are designed, produced and delivered between two and four weeks.
MOQ stands for Minimum Order Quantity. The guideline MOQ for book wrap mailers is 2,000 units, but the exact MOQ will depend on the final approved dimensions of your packaging.
