DIY Packaging : Stamping on Bubble Mailers
Need to end your battle between squishy bubble mailers and your rubber stamp?
Here’s how I brand every bubble-mailed package:
cleanly + professionally
without getting over-inky
without wasting mailers
Blank Stickers / Labels.
(I used the 2 1/4” x 3 1/2” size, standard white uncoated)
A slightly smaller Custom Logo Stamp.
(I used a 2” x 2” stamp)
How To Make:
Get your bubble mailers: Any size will do.
Get your stamp: A 2” x 2” stamp is a reasonable & a super versatile size for packaging small items like jewelry, soap, small pottery, etc. (Side note: This and my “thank you” stamps are the *most used* in my personal stamp arsenal.)
Stamp your Stickers: Align the stamp toward the bottom of the sticker label, printing so that there is a good margin of white space above it.
Stick em on: Just drape the white space of the sticker onto the back of your packaging and BOOM. Super professional packaging, just add your awesome product + send your happy mail on its way.
Side notes : This is a gazillion times easier than trying to figure out how to get JUST the logo (not the background) to print on those squishy mailers - because stamps like it FLAT and HARD. (— umm… that’s what she said?) You also only waste one sticker if your print isn’t quite as nice.. a heck of a lot less painful than wrecking a precious mailer.
When you go to do your printing, try stamping a large stack at a time so you've got them ready to go -- I've found its not *nearly* as fun to package when I have to stop and stamp a sticker every time I pack up a mailer!
This is a great way to cover up an overinked mailer if you’re already in that boat trying to print on them directly. Don’t worry, we’ve all been there!
Don’t have a logo yet? I’ve got you covered. I can even set you up with a digital copy to use for your social media, blog, website, etc!
Happy stamping, friends!!!
