The Jiffy bag celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2014 and it continues to be an indispensable part of office stationary we all take for granted.

Jiffy® is one of those brands that transcends itself and becomes a household name like Google, Hoover or Sellotape. In the packaging world Jiffy® has no equal and it is safe to assume that we have all used a jiffy bag to send mail at some point in our lives.

So what is it that makes Jiffy® bags so enduringly successful to this day?

The Jiffy bag began life in 1964 and the company has continued to focus on innovation ever since. Jiffy became the first company in the UK to extrude polyethylene packaging from foam in 1979 and its bags are made from 75% recycled materials as well as being 100% recyclable. Jiffy bags are also cheap as well as being durable which means they tick every box for businesses as well as consumers.

Jiffy bag sizes

Jiffy bags come in a range of sizes depending on the purpose for which they are intended from 120mm x 160mm to 250mm x 335mm.

With the growth of ecommerce in recent years, Jiffy bags continue to be in big demand due to their protective qualities and light weight durability.
