Polywrapping is enclosing a product within plastic wrap as the name suggests.
But it can be used for quite a wide range mailing or collated work. The prime usage is for magazine, catalogue, brochure and multi item pack enclosures. Items that benefit from being visible on receipt or are bulky and difficult to enclose in an envelope.
A good example of this is the enclosure of home and school learning materials for education, where there are multiple large items to collate & enclose and visibly being able to identify the pack and its contents is important.
Magazines, brochures, and catalogues also benefit from this when a visual aesthetic needs to be maintained and/or inserts are required.
Polywrapping is one of the quickest and most efficient direct mail options to enclose and post brochures, magazines, catalogues and books.
Shrink wrapping uses a stronger poly material and is shrunk around the items using heat. This is most suitable if you require the pack to secure the product within firmly. We recommend this for heavier multi item collations. E.g. sending a heavy catalogue and a large brochure in the same pack or a large quantity of thin or single sheet items in the same pack.
Poly bagging is an option, which pretty much means manually putting things in a pre-made poly bag. When it comes to multiple feedable items we can mechanically collate these first. However, this works really well when you need to enclose 3 dimensional odd shaped items that cannot be mechanically enclosed, for example business packs for conferences may contain lanyards, pens, USB stick, stress toy and documentation which would be very difficult to machine enclose.
