5 Benefits of Bubble Wrap Pillows

Bubble Wrap Pillows have been a staple in the product packaging industry – from artwork and fragile China to large and odd-shaped items. They can be used to protect just about anything. While there are plenty of protective packaging materials, none are as effective as Bubble Wrap Pillows. Here, we list a few benefits for you:

Absorb Shock

Bubble Wrap Pillows provide excellent impact protection during transit, including insulating products from bumps and rough handling. When wrapped around in 2 or 3 layers, they can protect any product from even the most severe impact. Bubble wraps are created by sealing two layers of plastic, thereby trapping air in the middle of the plastic to create a cushion and a pattern of bubbles. Since the air pockets are evenly distributed, they offer maximum protection from shocks and vibrations.

LightweightBubble Wraps

Bubble Wrap Pillows have nothing but air in them, making them one of the lightest void fillers. The lightweight translates into lower shipping costs, especially when transporting in bulk or when shipping by weight.


Unlike other protective packaging materials like foam sheets, Bubble Wrap Pillows are inexpensive and can be reused several times. And like we earlier mentioned, they help save money during shipping because of their lightweight. When buying in bulk, you can also get deals. Businesses often buy them as rolls because you can cut to your desired length rather than use them as individual bags.


Depending on the type of product to be packed, you can choose from a wide range of bubble wraps. You can choose from large bubbles, small bubbles, anti-static bubbles, individual bags, self-adhesive bags, and more. They’re also available in biodegradable material and ideal for the environmentally conscious packer. You can also use one as a nursery bag to cultivate delicate items. Several out-of-the-box ideas make Bubble Wrap Pillows extremely useful. For example, did you know there’s no better to get rid of sore feet than using bubble wrap pillows inside your shoes? You can also place them between fruits to prevent them from bruising.


Unlike in the past, a large amount of Bubble Wrap Pillows available in the market are recyclable. You can use them without any guilt about bubble wraps ending up in landfills or soiling the earth. You can also reuse them. They’re excellent insulators, helping you keep a room warm. Besides, who doesn’t find it therapeutic to pop bubble wraps?
