The explosion of D2C e-commerce across the global retail space has replaced much of the brick-and-mortar shopping experience — and this is no passing fashion. These days, when consumers meet your brand for the first time, face-to-face, it's often in the privacy of their own home.
For items like apparel, bedding, or other soft goods, every shipment puts your brand reputation on the line. And when it comes to making an impression, whether it's the first or one of many — bags and mailers can help seal the deal.
At Sealed Air, we combine the quality, speed, and efficiency of our Autobag brand automated bagging machines with customized, easy-to-return, protective shipping mailers that research shows can exceed consumer package expectations in three key areas: delivery, disposal, and delight.
AUTOBAG® brand mailers maintain a premium appearance for soft goods in transit by resisting tears and crushed edges for which boxes are known, and by repelling moisture and dirt. Poly or paper mailers can be padded or lined mailers to add even more protection when needed, and align with consumer expectations for high-end or luxury goods.
Standard-size boxes almost always require void-fill materials to keep goods in place during transit. These materials, along with boxes that must be broken down for collection, create waste and effort consumers just don't want. AUTOBAG® brand shipping bags are easy to right-size, re-use or dispose of by being small and curbside or store drop-off collectable.
In the D2C environment, making a connection often comes down to what happens at delivery. So from the materials we use to make them, to custom printing or features like close strips, gusseted expansion, handles, or zip-lock closures, AUTOBAG® brand offers a range of mailers that can bring your customer closer - and keep them there for years to come.

"Without our four AUTOBAG brand 850s machines, we would have struggled to keep up with rising volume levels."
Operating multi-channel commerce for the world's biggest sports franchises, U.S.-based Fanatics offers licensed team apparel, jerseys, headwear, and hardgoods to sports fans around the world.
When online order volume started increasing with speed, manual packing operations were no longer sufficient to keep up with demand. The solution was the installation of four semi-automated AUTOBAG® brand 850S bagging and printing system that increased efficiency and throughput velocity 5X.
