Best Bubble Wrap

This guide will help you choose the best size of bubble wrap to protect the items that you package and ship.

First, a couple of comments on the way that bubble wrap is sized.  Bubble wrap comes in four (4) standard sizes;  1/8", 3/16", 5/16", and 1/2".  The size refers to the height of the bubble and not the diameter.  1/8" is a less common size and it is called "super small" bubble.  3/16" is called small, 5/16" is medium, and 1/2" is called large bubble.  Common retail roll widths are 12" and 24" and the rolls are typically perforated every 12".
If you are packaging delicate, fragile items then wrap your items with super small or small bubble wrap or put the item into a pouch made from small bubble.  Click here for pouches made from small bubble wrap.
For increased protection wrap the item with several layers of bubble and tape it into place.  Always wrap the top of the bubbles against your item for the best protect…

How to Repair a Luggage Wrapping Machine.

Luggage Wrapper being repaired at Quick Pak Inc.  What is a luggage wrapper?
The luggage wrap machine is commonly used in airports to wrap suitcases, golf clubs, pushchairs & backpacks.  These machines have also been sold in other sectors to wrap single boxes, plastic cartons, televisions ready to recycle and various other applications.
They have a power pre-stretch film delivery mechanism fitted, which allows the film to be stretched up to 245%.  This will give a significant saving on film compared to manual wrapping. There is also an easy thread head manufacture for these machines. The machines that we make use film that is 750mm wide.
Airports - After an item is wrapped it cannot be opened without your knowledge as the film creates a seal around your luggage. If the luggage wrap has been damaged or opened then it will be clearly visible to you because the film would be cut or torn.
In airports across the world, it is believed that luggage is opened frequently by handling staff…

PE Shrink Bundling Film for Wrapping Flat Pizza Boxes in Bundles

We supply CLING-Tite plastic shrink wrap film for packaging pizza boxes, trays of bottles, cans and unitizing. Heat shrink wrap is often referred to as heat shrink plastic, shrink bundling film, poly shrink pack and case wrap. We offer several application–specific shrink films such as perforated shrink wrap / vented shrink wrap and “film over film”.
Vented Shrink Film
Both our industrial shrink wrap and clear printable shrink wrap films adapt to practically any heat shrink tunnel, shrink wrap machine or shrink wrapper to achieve a tight “bullseye” closure.
We use virgin resins and extrude them under the same conditions for you every time. The result is boring, consistent performance so you don’t have to constantly adjust heat shrink tunnel settings. To make a heat shrink package fit you have to predict the shrink ratios in both the machine direction (MD) and transverse direction (TD). Too much or too little shrink in the transverse direction results in a sloppy “bullseye” on the side…

The Difference Between Butcher Paper and Kraft Paper?

If you’re in a profession or industry that uses kraft paper or butcher paper every day, you may think that the two are entirely different. While they are generally used for different purposes, you may be surprised to learn that butcher paper and kraft paper start out as the same paper.

The term butcher paper first appeared when butchers began using paper to wrap and store meat and seafood.
Both kraft paper and butcher begin with the same exact raw materials, meaning kraft paper actually shares the same wood fiber as butcher paper. When it comes to the true differences between these papers, they basically come down to how they are processed beyond their raw materials and how they are best used.
What’s in a color?
If you’re like most people, you may think that color is the main differentiator between kraft and butcher papers. Kraft paper is brown, and butcher paper is white, right? Not necessarily. Many manufacturers offer brown kraft paper, but in reality, the paper is available in a …
