If you send products “pre-packaged” and “ready to ship” then your products do not require a packaging mailer otherwise, we use a mailer to package and ship your products. Our overall goal is to choose a mailer that delivers your product without any damage and also helps you save postage/shipping costs.
We classify our mailers into a few different categories:
Book Kraft Mailer
The best-fit kraft mailer is always selected for packaging the various weights, shapes, and sizes of books that are shipped daily. All hardbound and spiral-bound books are shipped using a Heavy Duty mailer.
|Kraft Book Mailer Standard||Up to 4 lb book||$1.00 per mailer|
|Kraft Book Mailer Heavy Duty||Up to 5 lb. book||$2.00 per mailer|
Here are examples of kraft mailers:
|Small mailer/Polybag||9” x 8” x 1” - less than 13 oz.||$0.40 per mailer|
|Large mailer||14” x 11” x 1” - less than 13 oz.||$0.65 per mailer|
We stock a variety of corrugated boxes to make sure your product is packaged in the most effective manner. The boxes are strong enough to accommodate varying weights and are all approved for shipping with national carriers.
|Corrugated Standard||$3.00 per box|
|Corrugated Double Wall||$6.00 per box|
Shrink wrap a book:
The best-fit kraft mailer is always selected for packaging the various weights, shapes, and sizes of books that are shipped daily. Occasionally the mailer isn’t enough for the size and type of book being shipped so for an additional layer of protection we offer shrink wrapping. Shrink wrapping a book is an efficient and cost-effective way to protect your book’s cover from minor scratches and scuffs that sometimes occur during transit.
Acutrack can shrink-wrap any book, no matter the size or weight. Please contact your account manager if this is something that you would like to add.
The cost of shrink wrapping is $0.75 per book
