If you want to know some useful tricks and tips to deliver your jam jars safely, here are some solutions that you can try.
Check All The Boxes When It Comes To Your Boxes
You can avoid the risk of your boxes getting torn or popping open before it reaches the intended receiver by remembering simple things while choosing the right box for you.
Thickness Does The Charm
Don’t use a box that may feel too loose or too thin to handle the weight of the jam-filled-jar. Always remember that the box you choose to trust your jam with can endure the duration of time it’s supposed to be protecting the jar.
Don’t use a box that is too small or too big for your jar. You don’t want the jar to pop out of the box, or twirl around inside the box.
If you can’t come up with a different box or can’t find a box big enough for your package, you can always use two and carefully tape them together in such a way that you get enough room for the jar. If the box is too big, you can always use some extra stuffing. If you choose to do it with either of the options, make sure you have enough room for your stuffing.
Stuff It To Your Taste
The more the merrier, if you have some extra room in your box, you can always use it to your advantage. There are a number of ways and materials that you can use when it comes to making the right stuffing for your jam jar.
Our good old friend, the bubble wrap, comes in handy every time. Apart from being a great way to pass your time popping its bubbles, you can actually use it to prevent your glass jar from popping up. Use bubble wrap whenever and however you can to keep your jars safe. You can find many great methods to use it online or come up with your own methods. There is just too much room for innovation.
Ah the tiny transparent air pillows! Don’t you just love these things? Use airbags to surround your wrapped jar so that it doesn’t move inside the box too much, and your jar must reach its destination just fine.
