Think Outside the Box

WCI shipping bags are preferred by retailers and fulfillment houses nationwide for their durability, appearance and, most importantly, cost savings. Paper linerboard mailers also provide an environmentally-friendly alternative to poly shipping bags or cartons packed with void fill.


Why choose WCI mailers?

Reduced shipping and handling costs. WCI mailers are convenient to stack, store, and pack. No assembly, no tape, and no fill. Just pick, pack, seal, and ship! Volume and output increase – more packages can be shipped in less time. Our compact mailers take up less space in the delivery truck, translating to tremendous savings as shipping companies make the transition to dimensional-weight shipping rates.
Durability. WCI mailers are manufactured with strength and security as top priority. High-quality materials are used for the envelope and for the seal, keeping dirt and moisture out and delivering product intact.
Aesthetics. Branding packaging with your logo is important to creating the ultimate customer experience and making a positive impression when their package is delivered. Our low
minimums on custom printed mailers mean businesses of any size can deliver their message directly to their customer’s doorstep.
Environmental Commitment. WCI is proud to manufacture shipping mailers that are 100% recycled, 100% recyclable, printed with waterbased inks and made in the USA. WCI takes
very seriously our commitment to being good stewards of the environment. We have sought out and aligned ourselves with some of the most respected and conservation-minded paper companies in North America. Most of the mills we purchase from subscribe to third-party certification from Sustainable Forestry Initiative (SFI) or the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC).


Don’t take our word for it! Here’s what people who actually use our mailers say…

“Not only are we improving our eco-friendliness, and saving on shipping costs, but our shipment branding has never been stronger.”

“We proudly ship our products in Eco-Naturals! We have eliminated the use of tissue paper and other wasteful embellishments because we believe that our packaging is pretty enough on its own. It’s like mailing out a gift.”

“We love Eco-Naturals because they are truly eco-friendly, with no bleaching and can be 100% recycled. We also love how much money it saves us using flat envelopes instead of boxes to ship our orders!”

WCI shipping bags are available in several price points and substrates. But no matter which mailer you choose, you
can count on quality, durability, and unmatched service before – and after – the sale. Stock and custom options offer a variety of packaging solutions for products of every shape and size.
