Shredded Paper Is A Great Choice Of Filler Packaging Material!

Submitted by lizseyi on Sat, 06/22/2024 - 08:24

Do you run a business that regularly sells products online, such as through a dedicated ecommerce store or an eBay storefront? If so, you will no doubt be well aware of the need to make sure each piece you sell is tightly cushioned in its packaging before you post the parcel to its recipient.

Otherwise, the product in question could too easily shift around inside the package during transit. While bubble wrap and polystyrene peanuts are traditional and often-chosen packaging filler materials, there are some very good reasons to consider switching to the purchase of shredded paper filler in bulk.

Great for filling in awkward gaps in packages

Whether what you have sold is set to be delivered in a box, a packet, or a bag, what should you create the “cushion” with? You might already have one idea: tissue paper…
However, the shredded paper that we stock is better than tissue paper at protecting delicate items. These objects — such as candles, china, and glass — may still be heavy enough to crush tissue paper, potentially nullifying much of the protection that such paper offers.

The paper’s colouring can match that of your branding

What colour would you like your shredded paper to be? When you order more than 50kg of shredded paper — in either a single colour or a mix of colours — from our team here at, you can take advantage of discounted wholesale pricing.

Either way, you will have more than 35 colours to choose from — and if you want to opt for more than one colour in the same order, we can help you decide on the right colour combination. As we shred each batch of paper individually, you will even have free rein over the proportions of different colours included.

This can come in especially useful if you want to recreate your company’s branding hues. For example, if your corporate logo is predominantly black but lined with red, you could ask us to include 90% black paper and 10% red paper in the batch we send you.

Shredded paper can serve your sustainability goals

Every business should be doing its bit for the environment, and your own business can support our precious Earth more easily by packing with shredded paper instead of bubble wrap and polystyrene peanuts.

Neither of those alternative packaging filler options can be classed as sustainable. Bubble wrap is difficult to recycle, while polystyrene peanuts (otherwise referred to as “packing peanuts”) are not biodegradable, i.e. they cannot decay in a natural way that is harmless to the environment.
Conversely, we offer shredded paper that is recyclable and biodegradable. You could even encourage your customers to reuse the shredded paper that they receive with the goods they buy from your business.

All of this, and our shredded paper is also more visually appealing than either bubble wrap or packing peanuts — especially since we can send you the paper in either straight-cut or zig-zag form.
