Bubble envelope to protect your goods

If the bubble envelope, also called "padded envelope", is so used to send fragile goods, this is because it has a film with thousands of air bubbles inside which is literally a protective padding against bumps and knocks. So, your goods can't break during their transport towards the customer. Outside, there is a solid kraft paper which won't tear up. The whole envelope is very light, so you won't pay any additional cost for the shipping cost of the parcel.
