Cardboard mailers are another form of optical media packaging designed to withstand the elements when shipped or distributed. These lightweight mailers serve a double function by storing the disc within the mailer in a CD jewel case/DVD case or solely by the disc packed in the mailer. They also have a structure rigid enough to protect the discs from harm.
Cardboard mailers have a marked difference in size compared to bubble mailers, as the majority of them are constructed much smaller to snugly fit the shape of the media while maintaining rectangular or square dimensions.
Transparent plastic windows and custom printing on the cardboard's surface are additional options that allow these mailers to create an impact when being distributed. Like bubble mailers, many cardboard versions come with adhesive seal strips that safely keep the disc in place.
A user of cardboard mailers can often cut down on shipping and packaging costs because even CD sized mailers meet USPS guidelines so that postage can be affixed directly on the mailer without adding another envelope or box for transport.
