How did you do?

Shipping envelopes are one of the most critical office supplies all companies need. But have no fear! This is why we are here!

By the way, I am guessing you could not define all 5 of the envelope types or brands. Otherwise, why would you be reading this?

Well, I have an answer for that too. Even if you did know the definition for the shipping envelopes the amount of knowledge you will gain from this article will give you an edge leaving your entire office envious.

We are all aware of what people have been saying for since the 1990's internet boom. Real mail is going to go extinct, and e-mail will take over!

Well, we don’t like to make assumptions about how we feel about what we say. We want to make our hypothesizes based off of logical proof.

Let’s turn to a reliable source that collects billions of data every day, Google!

Using an online tool free and available to anyone with internet access is Google Trends.

It collects users search inquires over the years to discover what’s trending! How is this done you may be wondering, we’ll have the answer. Through Google’s sophisticated data mining algorithm, it evaluates the level of a search terms interests from 1 to 100.

Let’s look at the last five years for both “Envelopes” and “Emails.”

When we researched these keywords, we were surprised by the results.

Now take a look at the link to the Google Trends for the search term:




For the past five years “Envelopes” have been floating around the number 80 for its interest level. To our astonishment over the past half-decade “Emails” have been floating around the 20's in interest levels.

We all know the famous saying. Numbers don’t lie. So if people tell us that envelopes are dying out and will no longer be shipped via FedEx, USPS or UPS there is only one thing you must do.

Let’s define these FIVE words in the context of Shipping Envelopes.

Padded, Bubble, Poly, Security, and Tyvek envelopes.

Ok, you read them above but we're going to go down the line. Let’s start with Padded!


According to the prestigious Cambridge Dictionary, Padded Envelopes is defined as “an envelope made of thick material to protect its contents: The parts arrived in a padded envelope.”


Bubble styled shipping envelopes are very similar to padded envelopes. These bubble mailers offer an added level of durability.


According to Wikipedia a Poly Envelopes is defined as “A windowed envelope is an envelope with a plastic or glass window in it.”


We researched and found out on the blog Letter Jackets that the definition of Security Envelopes is the following “Security tint envelopes are a paper product designed for sending sensitive information through the mail. They are most often used for financial documents, personal information like medical records, checks, government correspondence and anything else the sender or receiver wants to protect from unwanted viewing.”


Tyvek envelopes are merely just a brand of envelopes. Will leave at that. If you want to learn more check them out on our website by clicking this link here
