It’s common for most retail book sellers to use shrink wrap for packaging when they sell an individual book or books sets. Shrink film offers protection with a crystal clear display to show products. Different retailers prefer different types of shrink film. The most common shrink products used are shrink bags and shrink wrap tubing.
This post is about using shrink tubing to wrap multiple books at once. We prefer shrink tubing for wrapping more than one book. The tubing offers the option of sealing both ends or leaving the ends open. The open ended shrink tubing works great to hold books together. The sealer shrink tubing holds ends together as well as helps to protect the books from external elements such as: dust, moisture, etc.
We recommend using heat shrink wrap to protect books with almost all delivery methods. If you have a set that comes with its own box, placing the books in the set box and shrink wrapping the box to help protect it is a great way to ensure products will reach customers undamaged.
If the box will then be shipped, we recommend placing the shrink wrapped box in a corrugated box for extra protection during shipping. Be sure to use the proper amount of void-fill to reduce unnecessary shifting during transport.
