We have been making eco-friendly, custom printed packaging for clothing and soft goods for years and there is no right or wrong when choosing between mailer envelopes and mailer boxes. However, recent changes in shipping weight and rates have forced everyone to reevaluate how they ship out their apparel products for e-commerce customers.

5 different prints on Light Rate Mailer Box

Sometimes it takes time for a good idea to a catch on and the same holds true for box sizes. Four years ago in January of 2011 I wrote a blog post (see first link below in related posts) talking about the new box that we were adding to our inventory that is the exact same size as the smallest USPS “Flat Rate” box.
