  • How Mailing Bags Transform Online Retail

    Working in online retail means you’re bombarded with ever-changing branding tactics, with each month demanding a new, innovative approach to your marketing strategy. Amongst this rush of internet activity, it can be easy to forget the simple effectiveness of good packaging; namely, our mailing bags. Find out how this quality product can single-handedly transform your business brand.

    Make an Event of It

    You might not think of it in these terms, but online retail really is about theatre. Create a sense of anticipation for your product’s arrival before following through with a sleek piece of packaging and your ‘audience’ will applaud you for it. With our quality range of coloured and grey mailing bags, all of which feature tamper-proof self-seal strips, you can professionally present your product whilst protecting it on the way. Wondering how customers will thank you? In the form of return custom. Having been the recipient of a positive consumer experience, they’re significantly more likely to now place their trust (and purchases) in your mail order company. It’s like we said: some simple but effective packaging has the potential to reinforce your business reputation.

    Broaden Your Branding

    If you had a chance to extend your marketing, would you take it? The fact is, your branding doesn’t have to stop once a consumer has placed an order and closed their internet browser. Using ODL’s professional printing services, you can apply essential information or vibrant images onto your mailing bags. In doing so, your branding can literally get to the customer’s doorstep.

    With marketing potential aplenty, our mailing bags have more going for them than just their waterproof qualities. Stock up online or call us today on 01785 760055 to discuss our personalised printing options.

  • 3 Business Benefits of Carrier Bags

    You might not expect it, but the humble carrier bag can pack quite the punch when it comes to reinforcing your retail business brand. From boutique clothing shops to independent electronics stores, ODL has some unmissable business benefits to, quite literally, pull out of the bag. Read on to find out more.

    1. The Professional Look

    Ever left a shop with a dull sense of disappointment, your new purchase unceremoniously stuffed into a somewhat tatty, re-used bag? Whilst we fully endorse the re-use of plastic bags for your weekly grocery shop, it hardly lends an air of professionalism to your retail image. With this in mind, our top quality black and gold stripe plastic carrier bags let you maintain standards thanks to their chic design, showing customers that all-important attention to detail.

    2. Stand Out

    Fact is, if you don’t shout about your business, no one else will. That said, this doesn’t mean you have to resort to brazen advertising tactics. Sometimes, it’s the simple marketing ideas that offer the best returns. With our range of varigauge carrier bags available in 8 vibrant colours, you can send out satisfied customers who subtly promote your brand with the eye-catching carriers. Better yet, you can go one step further and take advantage of our bespoke and printing services, applying your business logo and information directly onto your wholesale carrier bags. After all, why leave it a blank canvas?

    3. A Green Reputation

    Overlook the importance of sourcing recyclable products and your business could be facing an eco battering. With our carrier bags, you can be sure of a fully recyclable option, dismissing any lingering environmental concerns. On the flip side, it’s also possible to simply re-use our carrier bags thanks to their durable design. Featuring a double thickness of 90 microns to prevent wear and tear around the handle, plus a 4” reinforced bottom gusset, our varigauge carrier bags aren’t giving way any time soon.

    Bag a deal with our quality wholesale carrier bags, available in a wide range of sizes and quantities. Alternatively, feel free to call our helpful sales team on 01785 760055 with any enquiries.

  • Why Choose Mailing Bags?

    Perhaps you’re more of a traditionalist, sticking to the old faithful cardboard boxes over modern polythene mailing bags for your mail order business. Certainly, when it comes to heavy-weight items, you do need an appropriately robust packaging solution. And yet, for all the virtues of the simple box, ODL is singing the praises of the versatile Mailing Bag. Find out the four deal-breakers in our latest blog.

    1. No Water Worries

    Whether you’re sending clothing, consumables, books or any other selection of items, a constant concern is the weather. With the reputation of your business riding on the safe delivery of your products, it simply isn’t worth chancing it with permeable packaging. This is where the waterproof qualities of our polythene mailing bags really shine through. Our Tri-Extruded plastic grey mailing bags, for instance, incorporate a total of three layers of protection, successfully warding off water damage and any potential scuffs during the delivery process.

    2. Lightweight

    We believe packaging solutions ought to be cost-effective in the long run, not just at the check-out. Thanks to their lightweight nature, our polythene mailing bags help clients to significantly cut their postage costs. Not only is this convenient for your own budget, but it also increases the likelihood of repeat business for your company. High delivery prices are the second biggest reason for customers abandoning their shopping cart mid-way through purchase. In short, cut your shipping costs and boost your business.

    3. Environmental Impact

    Contrary to popular belief, polythene bags are in fact 100% recyclable, making them a truly sustainable option. Not only that, ODL goes to every effort to ensure that our products are environmentally friendly from manufacture to disposal. In this way, both our grey and coloured mailing bags are made from fully recycled plastic.

    4. There’s Allsorts

    After all, no two businesses are ever the same. With that in mind, we offer a vast array of sizes, colours and features with our inexpensive, high-quality mailing bags. From our 6” x 9” coloured mailing bags available in 7 different colours, to our 24” x 36” economy grey mailers, we cater for variety.  Better yet, ODL also offers a personalised printing service, letting you emblazon stock mailing bags with your business designs or marketing messages. What better way to promote your brand?

  • Your Watertight Plan: Grip Seal Bags

    Finding a piece of packaging that’s as practical as it is secure can prove a tricky task. Here at ODL, however, we’re always up for the challenge, with our Grip Seal Bags working their pragmatic magic. More commonly known as zip lock bags, learn how these packaging pros have your back, from storing the kids’ lunchtime nibbles to looking after those fragile electronics.

    Whatever the Weather

    Of course, we’re hardly inviting you to abandon your grip seal bags to the ravages of the British weather. That being said, these small bags are surprisingly resilient, boasting excellent moisture resistance. You needn’t worry about delivering even the most sensitive electronic component or precious piece of jewellery in these watertight grip seal bags. The secure seal feature is partially to thank for this ability, remaining firmly closed until the receiver chooses to open it.

    On a Side Note

    You can quite literally make a side note on our panelled grip seal gaps. Whether you’re poised with that permanent marker or have a ballpoint handy, these convenient write-on panels allow you to keep tabs on exactly what’s inside.

    Get your packaging plans fully watertight and choose from our plain or panelled bags, available in a variety of sizes and quantities. Simply call our friendly sales team on 01785 760055 to order today or look online for our full range of high-quality products.

  • A Strong Suit: Postal Tubes

    From those all-important official documents to the prized posters countless teenagers plan on hanging in their bedroom, ODL’s selection of postal tubes perfectly fit the job. With strength and durability on their side, we’re revealing how these quality packaging products keep your goods entirely intact.

    Hard-wearing Option

    Our postal tubes are your proverbial tough guy: made of high-density, spiral wound cardboard, these products positively embody durability. Thanks to this clever design, you needn’t worry about potential damage to your goods whilst they’re out on the road. What’s more, with their thick plastic plugs at either end of the tube, the packaging’s water resistance is promoted. Simply stick some extra tape around the ends to fully seal them up, and you’re good to go.

    Finding a (Re)purpose

    Arguably the best thing about these versatile products is that they’re completely reusable. Made from high-quality, heavy-duty materials, the postal tubes can be used time and again, be it for long-term storage or simply sending on further documents or goods. Better yet, you’re spoilt for choice. If you’re looking to make an impression, our coloured cardboard A4 postal tubes do exactly that, adding a touch of drama to the delivery. A4 just too big? Also available in A1, A2 and A3, we’ve got your back.

    Whether you’re sending crucial documentation to clients or delivering a sought-after artwork to your customer’s door, our postal tubes are (quite literally) the strongest solution.

We don’t want to labour the point, but here at ODL we’ve been busy outlining how these high quality bags really seal the deal on your storage solutions.


    Variety is the spice of life and when it comes to finding alternative storage options, Grip Seal Bags (otherwise known as zip lock bags) certainly tick the ‘versatile’ box. Whether you’re looking to store fragile items, for instance small electrical appliances, or even looking to tidily organise your kitchen, these nifty little bags can accommodate.
