It's Bubble Wrap Appreciation Day!

It’s Bubble Wrap Appreciation Day!

Yes, you heard right, it’s officially Bubble Wrap appreciation day, which is observed on the last Monday in January every year.

Did you know bubble wrap was not intentionally created for bubble popping pleasure?

That’s right, the truth is Bubble Wrap was originally created from two shower curtains being sealed together, the inventors then tried to market this as wallpaper! Next, they tried to market it as greenhouse insulation (some people even still use it in this way today). A year later the inventors discovered its true calling and it’s now used worldwide to cushion and protect fragile items in shipping or storage (as well as bubble popping pleasure of course).

Each year there is even a Bubble Wrap brand ‘Young Inventor’ award that encourages finding new ways to use Bubble Wrap outside of packaging.  These young inventors work hard every year to try to create the newest Bubble Wrap craze.

How can you celebrate Bubble Wrap Appreciation Day?

You could spend the day finding as many different ways as possible to pop bubble wrap (there are a quite a few), or you can get online and order a big role of it for all your shipping and storage needs, we have bubble rolls in lots of different roll widths, plus a huge range of bubble bags.  You can order them all here in our online packaging shop.



Award winning packaging of 2018

We’ve looked back at the UK Packaging Awards of 2018 and found this innovative flat wine bottle and box worth a mention.  The bottle itself was inspired by the “Amazon generation” of shoppers and created to fulfill online orders of wine that can be delivered seamlessly into the home.

Not only is it a new shaped space saving bottle, it’s inventors claim it’s made from 100% recycled PET and is slight and strong enough to be sent by post. 

Considering 33 billion bottles are consumed globally per year, the space saving design of this bottle could have an immediate and positive impact on reducing carbon emissions through logistics. 

You can see it here packaged into a corrugated postal box with a die cut fitting to hold it perfectly in place.


What’s this go to do with Packaging Supplies?

Well apart from loving the flat wine bottle concept, we produce postal packaging for all types of products that are sent through the post by online retailers.  We can make boxes and fittings to perfectly suit your product and we can either supply these branded or left plain Kraft or white.
