How to Ship a Small Item: Small Business Shipping Boxes & Packing Materials

They say the best things come in small packages, but how do you get those packages where they're supposed to go? What is the best way to ship small items?

The good news is that you don't need to search high and low for a solution: this problem has been solved a long time ago. There are boxes and bags perfectly sized for anything that you need to ship.

And whether you are shipping one small thing, or you're a business looking for hundreds of boxes for shipping small items, you can find the cheapest and best solutions through PackQueen.

How to Pack Small Items for Shipping

The first thing that you need when shipping a small item is a proper box to put it in. Now, you could use a bag if the item is soft and not prone to damage, or a flat rate envelope if the item is flat enough, but generally speaking, you're going to want a box. And PackQueen has many small boxes to help you with shipping, even shipping internationally.

A good place to start your search is our One Piece Postage page, where you will find not just one size of box but dozens of boxes. All of them are small, but all of them fill different roies.

Take the Candle Box. Now, clearly, it can handle more than candles, but these boxes are made in the perfect dimensions to hold candles-and not just a single size of candle, but many. There's the 55/80 box, the 80/80 box, the 80/100 box, and the 80/200 box (those dimensions are all in millimeters). And you don't just get a perfect-sized box for any candle up to 200mm long, you also can get that Candle Box in 11 different colors.

And it doesn't stop with candles.

Want to ship a single bottle of wine? We have the Single Wine Box.

How about beer? There's the 1 Beer Can Shipper Box, and the 2 Beer Can Shipper Boxes.

And this doesn't even begin to address all of the boxes that don't have specialized names but do happen to be perfectly sized for whatever item you're wanting to ship. Our One Piece Postage and Gift Box line comes in all sorts of shapes and sizes, from the very small to the moderate to the large, so that you can truly ship anything that you need to.

Packing and Packaging

For packing, we have the Eco Heavy Duty Sustainable Hex Wrap, which is a 100% recyclable cardboard product that is designed to cushion your items carefully and softly. Think of it as the environmentally friendly version of bubble wrap, coming in 540mm x 320mm sheets that stretch to double that size.

This Hex Wrap can be cut or torn into the proper size to fit your small package, and it will safely secure your items while they are in transit.

Another option for packaging material is Shredded Kraft Paper, which is exactly what the name implies. This light and fluffy material will shield any items packed inside it from bouncing and jostling, making it a perfect material for fragile and breakable items such as ceramics or glassware.

One Box or A Thousand

PackQueen is your one-stop shop for all shipping needs. That means that we supply shipping materials to individuals in need of a box and a few sheets of Hex Wrap. And we will gladly work with small businesses and large businesses that are shipping out dozens, hundreds, or thousands of products a day. It is our aim to be Australia's source for all your box and packaging needs, and we are committed to being cost-effective, high quality, and offering the best customer service in the industry.
