How to choose our Shipping Friendly Boxes

Posted by Zakka Canada on 5th Aug 2023

Shipping friendly boxes come from the idea that you ship your items by Lettermail of Canada Post. You save a lot on shipping of your online orders: a couple dollars of a stamp vs. minimum $10 a parcel within Canada.

A Lettermail asks the height no larger than 2 centimeters. Canada Post measures your mail by a plate with a 2cm slot on it. So they are called Lettermail box, or slot box as well.

Our shipping friendly boxes have a height of 5/8" (16 or 17cm). You can ship them by a regular envelope, or a waterproof poly mailer bag (without bubble lining).
