When comparing kraft bubble mailers to poly-mailers, the key differences are that kraft bubble mailers have more size options, rigidity, and a little more weight due to the added bubble lining. If those are features that are not needed or your product is oddly shaped, then poly-mailers might be the right choice for you. Otherwise, kraft mailers are great for added protection.

Both Kraft and Poly Mailers are excellent cost-saving options for shipping soft or flat items that cannot easily be crushed or bent. Not only do they offer savings on shipping costs, but also on packaging costs as they do not require packaging tape or other materials. They’re quick, easy to use, affordable, and use less packaging material than small shipping boxes.
