Reuse Packaging and Win with Avery BlockOut Labels

The range of eco-friendly Avery BlockOut Labels not only help you to save money but are kind to the environment too.
These bright white labels are specifically designed to completely cover and block out the text on old postage labels. Therefore, by using these Avery BlockOut™ labels you can reuse a wide range of packaging including Mailing Boxes, Postal Tubes and Padded and Bubble Envelopes.
Available in a range of sizes, these permanent laser printer labels feature Avery’s unique QuickPEEL™ adhesive which is easier to peel and faster to apply. The labels are also guaranteed to be jam free so your working day will not be interrupted by any frustrating paper jams.
Top Tips for Reusing Packaging
Whilst it is good practice to reuse packaging wherever possible, here are some tips to bear in mind.
The packaging should be in good condition
You should not reuse packaging if it shows signs of any damage such as tears or holes. When reusing mailing boxes, make sure the corners also show no signs of wear and tear, in particular they need to be free of any dents or crumpled cardboard. All the box flaps should also be intact.
Cover all previous shipment markings
Make sure that any previous shipment labels or markings are covered to avoid any confusion or incorrect address information.
Is the reusable packaging suitable for its new contents?
Even if you have a reusable piece of packaging in good condition, it may not be the right size or strength for your new parcel. In addition, for confidential items, tamper proof packaging in the form of Security Envelopes may be required.
