Easy packaging material for postage

Once an item is sold, found or thread is no longer needed we move it here. These maybe helpful for historic reasons.

Easy packaging material for postage

Not environmentally friendly but could possibly be re-used.

At about $10 per metre for small rolls and $5 per metre for the huge 60m rolls, it's not very cost effective.

It's not a perfect comparison, but I would need to use at least $2.50 worth (at the maximum bulk rate) to package the same item I can put in a $0.20 padded mail bag (admittedly I buy those in bulk, so they're quite cheap). The large margins required for this product to self-adhere would also result in slightly larger items, which could increase shipping costs (due to the way cubic weight is measured).
