I ship books through the mail. Book edges do not get caught on anything as I insert the books into the smooth insides of these mailers the way they do with bubble mailers. Because there is no adhesive on the top flap, I can fold the flap in whatever way I need to in order to accomodate the size of the book I am packaging. These mailers are sturdy and light weight. They are easy to tape closed. They fit my needs perfectly. Quill is the only outlet I am aware of that still sells this particular mailer.

This mailer is a staple in our business.
We ship books in this padded mailer. Because of the smooth interior of these envelopes, the books slide right in. When we used bubble mailers years ago, the corners of the books would catch on the bubbles and it took some doing to get them inserted.
There is no self-sealing adhesive to close the envelope, but we have always taped over those types of seals anyway because it never looked like they would hold well enough by themselves. These mailers are less expensive without the self-sealing, and we use no more tape to seal them than we did on the self-sealing mailers. We are grateful that Quill still makes these mailers available.
