Why use EcoWrap – Compostable Wrapping?

Newly developed technologies have been used to replace traditional polymers with environmentally-friendly, sustainable Bioplastics made of vegetable raw materials.

Bioplastics are thermoplastics polymers made from renewable resources like natural and sustainable potatoes instead of crude oil. 100% biodegradable and made from renewable resources, due to consumer driven demand we expect to see an increasing transition from traditional mailing film which, although recyclable, is mostly sent to land-fill and can take hundreds of years to degrade and can cause harm to the marine environment.

You can choose from clear or printed packaging. Should you opt for clear packs, your brochure or catalogue, and therefore your branding, will be seen by your recipient and make an immediate impact on delivery. Some of the biggest brands consistently use this strategy, which is proven to increase direct mail ROI.

EcoWrap – Compostable Wrapping is a mailing film which is lighter than envelopes so they can help keep your mail under the postal weight bands to save you money on postage costs.

Pack addressing & printing services

We supply low cost Inkjet addressing, an effective solution for addressing carrier sheets in-line, which can then be polywrapped with other items. Alternatively we can also print addresses directly onto brochure or catalogues, which reduces carrier sheet costs. Our inkjet systems print variable text including addresses, bitmap graphics and a comprehensive range of barcodes and QR codes. As a Mailmark accredited agent, our systems can print high quality 2D barcodes onto postcards, improving postal efficiency and reducing the cost to you.

In addition to the above we also provide laser printing in house. This technique has the advantage over inkjetting of producing much higher print quality. We can laser personalise pre-printed letters or something more complex with multiple merge fields. Items that are laser printed can then be wrapped with single or multiple items. First impressions count and the quality of the printed images and text on this wrapping option will promote your brand with maximum visual impact.

Eco Wrapping Compostable Options for Mailing
We stock and can source a large range of clear and printed polythene.

Clear EcoWrap  – Can be used in conjunction with a printed paper carrier sheet or, dependant on the background contrast of the item underneath (typically magazine back cover), can be inkjet addressed directly onto.

White-band mailing film – This option allows for greater clarity of the address when printing directly onto the film. No carrier sheet is required which saves you money on print and fulfilment costs

Printed Compostable Wrap – We can supply printed EcoWrap in full colour, dedicated to promoting your publication or mailshot. We are fortunate to be located next-door to the leading UK supplier of printed mailing films, Four04, so we can offer fast turnaround and competitive pricing on all printed Mailing Film options.
