Can You Put Stamps on a Bubble Mailer?
You can’t put stamps on a bubble mailer. The mailer is designed to be as visually appealing as possible, and it cannot have any text or markings that would identify it as a stamped envelope.
Why Put Stamps On A Bubble Mailer?
1. You can save money.
A bubble mailer costs just pennies to print, so if you’re only going to use it once, it doesn’t make sense to send a stamp in the mail with it. If you need to send something that requires a stamp every time, then your best option is a padded envelope. The nice thing about bubble mailers is that they are completely machine-washable and as airtight as you like them to be.
2. It’s eco-friendly!
In places with high postal rates or expensive international shipping, many people turn to sending packages via bubble mailers instead of mailing from their hometown or country. While these mailers cost more than regular envelopes, they are great for mailing small items like postcards, business cards, and photo prints.
3. It’s a surprise!
You can make the recipient that much more excited to open your bubble mailer by adding a few surprises. Think of all the things you could put in one of these mailers if you had to: CDs, DVDs, or seeds for an outdoor garden (and can you say “eco-friendly?” ). You could also include candy, lotions, or perfumes for a spa day or just a fun little secret that your partner will adore.
4. You can broadcast a message from afar!
If you don’t have the time to send a stamped envelope, or you’re sending something expensive, think about sending it via bubble mailer. You can print your message and even include a picture or two on the outside of the envelope. Then, when it’s all wrapped up and ready to go, just pop in some more secret surprises inside. Your secret admirer will be thrilled to get your latest photographs as well as your special message for them.
5. You Can Use Your Bubble Mailer for Something Fun!
If you and your partner are planning to do something really special (like a surprise trip, or a big night out), why not send them one of these mailers instead of sending them something else? If you’re the type of person who loves to leave little surprises for people, then a bubble mailer is a great way to keep up with all the fun things you can do. Of course, it would be fun to get one back from someone that is as cute as this penguin girl. The idea should lead you to create some cute little surprises for your own partner too. You could send each other one for special occasions like birthdays or anniversaries. The possibilities are almost endless with bubble mailers.
Are There Any Scams With Bubble Mailers?
1. Tracking Numbers
A lot of recipients will check the postal tracking number for their package just to see if the package has really arrived before they actually open up their bubble mailer in order to get a better picture of what’s inside. Many different scam artists have been known to use this as an opportunity to try and get your money out of you while claiming that they did not include your package when it was actually supposed to arrive or that your item or items are not contained within the bubble mailer at all. Instead, they may claim that it was lost by the post office instead.
2. Missing Bubble Mailers
Depending on how large the bubble mailer is, it may be impossible for some people to get one out of an envelope without tearing up both sides of the paper itself – in which case, these people will simply tear out a couple of sheets from their own sheet of paper and make up some reason as to why they need so many pieces at once so that they can get a hold of a bubble mailer from somewhere else. Many scam artists will do this because it gives them an extra reason for trying to steal money from you.
3. Postage Costs Are Much Higher Than They Should Be
There are many times when you will find that there is very little actual weight included in whatever you send through postal services like FedEx or UPS instead of only including the price of postage costs per item contained within each separate bubble pack instead. You can only count on paying way too much money for postage costs and being stuck with something that you don’t actually even want.
4. Incorrect Bubble Packages
Sending someone something for the holidays in a bubble mailer is usually going to be alright. However, if you do this and then never send your recipient the exact same item you would have sent to them anyway in the first place, there’s a very high chance that they will not understand what you’re talking about when it comes time for them to open up the bubble pack and see what it is that you sent along with their present that they never received in the first place. In turn, they will not understand why it’s possible for your gift or gifts to be inside of a bubble pack rather than being inside of a regular package if everything else remains exactly as it was before.
5. Fake Bubble Packages
Those who are simply incredibly crafty will sometimes alter bubble mailers themselves to get rid of all of their items and then alter their shipping label so that all of those items look like they came from the same company or company’s name associated with the particular bubble mailer itself. This is something that many scammers may do when they know absolutely nothing about shipping supplies at all but rather rely on an industrious person using similar materials from an online store such as Amazon instead in order to recreate these packages without having too much trouble at all when trying to sell them too.
Tips For Using Your Bubble Maile
1. Always Be Sure To Check The Return Address On The Package You Are Sending Out
If you are sending anything at all that is going to be delivered directly to someone’s home and they don’t get it, there is a very high chance that they will call the police and report that you have stolen their package without ever having actually received it themselves. This happens because people don’t always check the return address on any bubble mailers that they send out in order to rule out this possibility.
2. Don’t Use The Bubble Mailer For Anything Else
In most cases, your bubble mailer should only be used for the purpose of delivering items such as gift cards or gift cards along with a couple of other items such as coupons or gift certificates for various restaurant chains. You can certainly send other things in bubble mailers too but these should not be sent to anyone else with your name on them as this will further raise suspicion in others about whether or not you are trying to scam them out of money as well.
3. Only Send Gifts In Bubble Mailers To People You Know
If you’re going to send someone a gift through an online store such as Amazon, there’s no reason why you can’t just use a regular package instead for this occasion rather than using a bubble mailer instead. However, if you do decide to do so because of whatever reason, make sure that it is something very small in size so that it will fit inside of a regular shipping envelope without it being too difficult for the person receiving it to find.
4. Be Very Careful With Your Bubble Mailers
In order for your bubble mailer to look like it came from a legitimate online store such as Amazon or another online store that sells shipping supplies, you should take very good care of the bubble mailer itself. You should also make sure that you use a package that looks just like what would be used by a real company or company’s name associated with shipping supplies in order to avoid any suspicion at all in others when they first receive your package if they are trying to determine whether or not you are indeed who you say you are when they first receive it.
If you’ve been in the mailing game for a while, you’ll know that there is always a danger of sending the wrong thing to the wrong person. Even if you have a lot of experience mailing, there will be certain occasions when you get it wrong. This can be very stressful and anxiety-inducing. Fortunately, there is a wonderful way to ease your anxiety and make your first time successful. You can use a pre-made, adorable, and personalized bubble mailer to send your sweet message to that special someone. If you do, you’ll be glad you did.
