Find Inner (Packaging) Peace

March 08, 2016


In our always on, go-go-go world, it’s healthy to take a step back and focus on creating inner peace. Of course, when we say “inner peace,” we are talking about inner packaging. Your packaging’s inner fills and cushioning are important from a protective perspective, of course. Additionally, fillers can greatly impact the customer experience. In other words, stress can arise if you’re not “one” with your inners.

Luckily for you, we’re here to help you find enlightenment. Below you’ll find our secrets to inner packaging peace.

Reduce your need for material comforts.

DIM weight changes implemented by the major delivery carriers have forced many online retailers to rethink the size of the packages being shipped. Part of a smaller packaging solution is also to rethink the protective packaging inside. Better use of materials and design inside of your packaging can reduce the package size and save you from rising shipping costs.

Simplify your life.

Last year, the industry announced it was moving away from traditional bubble wrap for a new, more cost-effective solution: bubble on demand. So, no more large rolled bubble will be shipped across the country. Instead, customers are adding the air on-site.

It’s not hard to see why Sealed Air and other companies are seeking new inner packaging materials and processes. “We would ship an entire 50-foot trailer with just a few rolls of bubble wrap,” says Tim Andrisani, Senior Design Specialist of Inner Packaging at Ernest. “Now, we will ship a pallet of film that sent to the warehouse where it is filled as needed.”

Become one with nature.

Believe it or not, mushroom-based packaging inners are becoming more popular. There are “mushroom-grade” loose fills available that drastically reduce environmental impact. Older resin-grade materials previously used widely are non-compostable and non-recyclable.
