How to protect and ship safely books

Although we read less and less books when we decide to buy one for ourselves or as a gift we would like to protect it from any damages.

Books are coming in all kinds of sizes hence it is not easy to find the suitable packaging material.

We, at Package Mate, offer book wraps which heights are flexible that allow you to pack many different books in one type.

How to wrap a book

I'm sending this hardcover limited edition book to my friend with Australia Post. Through this example I will show you how easy to wrap a book.

First you need to measure the length and the width of the book.

Very important! Every value is an internal measurement. I chose the CP020-14 book wrap.

Let’s pack!

First, place the book in the center of the book wrap.
