Pack It, Wrap It, Post It with Postpak
Designed with strength and endurance in mind, the Postpak range allows you to send items in the mail with confidence.
Postpak is a high quality range of packaging products developed exclusively by the Post Office. The range includes everything you need to send items in the mail:
Some items do not need to be sent in a box or tube. Postpak Bubble Envelopes are a lightweight alternative that can reduce your mailing costs. Yet they offer protection against damage to your items once they are in transit.
If you want your parcel to be sent via a signed for service, airmail or simply sent via 2nd Class, make sure the PostPak product you choose is suitable for the postal service you need. More information on postage and packaging including mailing costs for letters, large letters and parcels can be found at postoffice.co.uk/mail
Always take time and effort to protect delicate items you send in the mail. Use cushioning material such as PostPak Bubble Wrap. This will ensure items are well protected and its lightweight nature will still ensure the weight of your parcel is kept low.
If you are sending more than one item in the same parcel, bubble wrap will also protect the items from each other and the sides of the container to avoid movement during transit.
Make sure all the edges and openings are sealed securely and use extra Clear Tape or Packing Tape as required. For an easy all in one solution why not buy the PostPak Wrapping Kit? It includes 3 sheets of brown 750 x 750mm wrapping paper, parcel tape, postage labels and a selection of stickers to identify your mail – Fragile, Airmail, Urgent and First Class.
PostPak make it easy for you to address your parcels. All packaging items in this range include pre labelled areas for you to write the recipient’s details.
Therefore, you do not need to spend money on additional labelling, just simply write the delivery name and address on the front of the box or envelope. Also, don’t forget you own sender’s details on the reverse. Then, just pop down to your local Post Office branch with your parcel.
Many everyday items, such as aerosols, nail varnish and perfumes are considered dangerous goods under transport legislation. To make sure the mail is safe for everyone, the Post Office restrict or prohibit certain items.
To make sure you are posting safely, please ask any member of staff at the Post Office. Failure to comply with these controls could result in prosecution.
