Padded mailers are padded envelopes used for packaging products for shipment. In the United Kingdom they are known as Jiffy bags after a famous manufacturer, the Jiffy Packaging Company.



The exterior envelope can be made of a heavy paper, paperboard, corrugated fiberboard. or plastic film.


The padding material can be recycled newsprint, foam, bubble wrap, or other cushioning materials.


Many mailers have an integral flap that has a pressure-sensitive adhesive, a gummed (water-activated) adhesive, or tape to allow easy and secure closure.
