Hoping to take the stationery world by storm and revolutionise the way we send items through the post, company founder, Alastair Correya came up with the idea after his mother bemoaned the general greyness of the mailing bag market. Although he did find a bright pink mailing bag online, Alistair was determined to shake things up a bit and quickly sketched out a range of fun, funky bag designs. The Original Funky Mailing Bag was born.
These British-made mailing bags are lightweight, 100% recyclable and degradable, they are opaque for security & feature a tamper-proof seal, and are suitable for international & domestic postage. The heavy-duty polythene bags are available in a range of fresh, eye-catching designs, including the very popular metallic-effect presents design above and two Union Jack designs, which have proved popular worldwide.
They are perfect for sending gifts in the post, but also ideal for online sellers and even businesses. The Original Funky Mailing Bag are busy creating new designs to add to the range, and they can even create bags with your own design on, a great idea for business or other bulk buy customers. The bags are available in 3 sizes:
- 24cm x 32cm
- 28cm x 37.5cm
- 30.5cm x 41cm
For domestic use, we love the pick'n'mix element available in their online shop, where bags are priced from 94 pence each. You could stock up for Christmas and buy bags for birthdays and other occasions throughout the year, all at the same time. Gotta love a bit of advance organisation!
The Original Funky Mailing Bags are available online, from Staples stores in the UK, Germany and Portugal, and from selected post offices nationwide.
