Polybagging is a simple process where a printed item or small loose items can be hand inserted into polybags and sealed. Polybagging usually falls under the mailing service banner, but it can be used for packaging and kitting as well. The traditional definition is a clear plastic or polyethylene bag used to package multiple items together. It is commonly used to package a magazine, small supplementary publications, a newspaper or magazine.
Direct marketers love the versatility that comes with polybagging and polybag mailings, since they are always looking for ways to stand apart from the competition.
3 Reasons to Polybag you Next Mailing
1. Stand Out from the Competition
Smart marketers know that polybagging is a great way to stand out from the competition. Virtually any combination of companion pieces can be stacked together to form the mailing. The polybag doesn’t have standard size limitations like an envelope, it can be wrapped around mailers of almost any size. Probably the best reason you would want to use a polybag is so that you can stand out from the competition and achieve a high open rate. Polybagged pieces get opened more frequently and quicker than traditional direct mail pieces. Your brilliant promotional piece will be displayed through the polybag not covered like an envelope. The visibility of the contents is a marketing tool that stimulates interest and makes a lasting impression with the person receiving the mail piece. Printed pieces “pop” and create a more professional and memorable impression. It gives potential customers a sneak peek into what they are receiving.
2. Cost Efficiency
Not only will your mailer stand out but you can also achieve it at the same costs as using traditional envelopes. Polybagging keeps your package light and therefore you postage costs low. Mailing your marketing piece in a polybag saves you money because you are eliminating the cost of a designer and printing services associated with an envelope.
3. Protecting Catalogs and other Printed Materials
Polybagging protects printed materials from damage. Damage can be related to weather or human error. The polybag makes your piece durable and protects it from ripping in the mail stream and protects it from water damage.
