Our Cushioning Materials Product Selection

Please take a look at our wide selection of Cushioning Material Products:

  • Bubble Wrap

    Bubble Wrap

    Bubble wrap is made from a flexible transparent plastic that provides cushioning with small, regularly spaced air bubbles. Strangely enough, bubble wrap was created during attempts to develop a three-dimensional wallpaper in 1957. Although the wallpaper idea didn't pan out, its inventors realized that bubble wrap works really well as a cushioning material. Bubble wrap is available with several different sized bubbles, and sold in rolls of various sizes.Get Quote

  • Rolled Foam

    Rolled Foam

    Foam is one of the most widely-used cushioning materials available. Usually made from polyurethane, rolled foam is incredibly versatile and comes in a wide variety of thicknesses and roll sizes. Rolled foam is closed-cell, making it waterproof as well. Foam materials work great for protecting glass, ceramics, electronics, and other fragile items during shipping.Get Quote

  • Air Pillows

    Air Pillows

    Air pillows are made of HDPE plastic and filled with air to provide protection during shipping. They come in a variety of sizes, and the amount of air added can be adjusted to provide the optimal amount of protection. Air pillows add practically zero weight to packages, which can create savings on shipping costs.Get Quote

  • Anti-Static Bubble Wrap

    Anti-Static Bubble Wrap

    Anti-static bubble wrap provides the cushioning protection of bubble wrap while resisting static electricity build-up. This makes anti-static bubble wrap perfect for protecting smartphones, tablets, computers, and other sensitive electronic parts or devices. Anti-static bubble wrap is usually dyed pink for easy identification, and comes in rolls and pouches of various sizes.Get Quote

  • Anti-Static Foam

    Anti-Static Foam

    Much like Anti-Static Bubble Wrap, Anti-Static Foam is designed for shipping electronic parts and equipment. It's also dyed pink for easy identification and usually comes in sheets or rolls. Anti-static foam is open-cell and not waterproof, so additional materials should be used to ensure that products are not damaged by water or moisture during shipping.Get Quote

  • Bubble Pouches

    Bubble Pouches

    Bubble pouches are essentially small bags made of bubble wrap that provide a small, tight-fitting protective layer around the product. They can be made from either regular bubble wrap or anti-static wrap. Bubble pouches shouldn't be confused with bubble mailers - bubble mailers are a complete package that you simply fill and ship, while bubble pouches are meant to be filler material only.Get Quote

  • Foam Pouches

    Foam Pouches

    Foam pouches make it easy to protect small or flat fragile items such as dishes, glassware, or picture frames. They are anti-slip and non-abrasive, and come in a wide variety of sizes to ensure the perfect fit for your products. Much like bubble pouches, these are meant to be used inside of another package such as a box or mailer envelope.Get Quote

  • Cellulose Wadding

    Cellulose Wadding

    Cellulose wadding is a cushioning material made from multiple layers of tan Kraft paper. It's very soft and pliable, and its unique structure and texture makes it very good at absorbing oils, liquids or moisture. Cellulose wadding is sold in perforated sheets or rolls, and it's a very cheap and effective cushioning material since it's 100% recyclable and biodegradable.Get Quote

  • Kraft Paper

    Kraft Paper

    Kraft paper is made using the Kraft process, which separates lignin and cellulose in the wood. The lignin is removed since it doesn't make very good paper, and the result is a very durable paper. Kraft paper can be used on its own as a wrapping paper or filler material, and can also be made into envelopes and other paper products.Get Quote

  • Single Face Corrugated

    Single Face Corrugated

    Single Face Corrugated is a very simple but effective cushioning material. It's made from two layers of corrugated cardboard - one flat layer, and one fluted layer (made of ridges). Single face corrugated is mostly used to separate and protect individual products inside a larger package. It's usually supplied in rolls with a wide range of sizes and flute profiles (how large the ridges are).Get Quote

  • Newsprint


    Newsprint paper (aka packing paper) is blank newspaper and is often used as a cheap paper cushioning or wrapping material. It's sold in packs of sheets (usually by the pound) and is available in a wide variety of sizes. It's commonly used for dishes, pots & pans, and small appliances. Newsprint can be a simple and effective cushioning material for items that don't need much protection inside the packaging.Get Quote

  • Loose Fill

    Loose Fill

    Loose fill (aka void filler or filler) is an inexpensive way to protect products during shipping. Loose fill refers to several materials that are used to fill in any spaces (voids) in a package to keep items from moving around inside. Packing peanuts, shredded cardboard, and even crumbled newsprint are all examples of loose fill, and can be effective cushioning material when used correctly.Get Quote

  • Foam Plank

    Foam Plank

    Polyethylene (PE) foam (also known as plastifoam) planks are great for protecting heavy items or providing extra stability to packages. PE is durable, lightweight, and high-density, with a closed cell design that makes it waterproof. It offers excellent protection from vibrations, offers good insulation, and there are even anti-static options available. PE foam planks can be cut into any desired shape or have cut-outs made to isolate products during shipping.Get Quote

  • Foam-in-Place


    Foam-in-place (FIP) is made by spraying two chemicals into a high-density PE bag. When these chemicals mix, they create an expanding foam and mold into the shape of whatever item it's surrounding. The foam then hardens and creates a snug, custom-fit foam cushion - regardless of odd shapes, sharp edges, or other factors that make other cushioning materials less than ideal.Get Quote

  • Custom Foam Fabrication

    Custom Foam Fabrication

    If you are in need of custom packaging solutions, Preferred Packaging is able to fabricate made-to-order foam cut-outs, inserts, and more using our in-house design teams to meet your exact specifications.Get Quote
