It always makes me laugh when I'm in the PO and see their stupidly high prices for everything.
going to buy a few of these thanks !
thanks
Although these are good prices, consider the use of mailing bags for durable items instead of these boxes as I have had DVDs sent to me in these which would have cost less to send with a mailing bag (100 for £2.50 on Internet auction site) and hence cost more money !!!

I have voted hot for your deal !!! Though!!! Ahaaa

MA MA MA
These are a wonderful find, my mate who sells on ebay found these weeks ago and they are superb value for money. Large box in PO was £3.99 compared to £1 in Poundland.
5 jiffy bags for £1 as well, great prices!
Always this price though.

They also do 7 small ones for £1.
These are cheap but a false economy because they weigh considerably more than a jiffy bag, so you may find that your postage costs have been pushed up into a higher price bracket.

These are boxes not envelopes, so you can't directly compare them.
You use these when whatever you're sending needs the added protection, or is too big to fit in a jiffy bag.
I know this post is for postage boxes & some people may not agree with this, but for cheaper postage envelopes/ packets etc that are POST OFFICE APPROVED, just ask in the post office for some (more than one) SPECIAL DELIVERY envelopes (C5=A5, C4=A4, C3=A3 or just state the size you want)....these will be given to you FREE OF CHARGE as they are included in the price you pay when you send a parcel/ package via SPECIAL DELIVERY (a next day delivery service for about £6). Just turn them inside out to hide the SPECIAL DELIVERY printing, place your item inside & use the self seal label. Now just pay the required postage...easy!

Remember, the self seal will be on the outside, you just have to fold it back on itself for it to work or you can just use cello-tape

Help me out here because I am struggling to think of anything of this size that wouldn't fit in a jiffy bag or would need more protection than a jiffy bag. At least the jiffy bag has cushioning. The box has none and you may have to add bubble wrap to the inside of the box to protect the contents, which would add further to the weight of the box.

Unless you can think of anything that would need a box then I would definitely go with a jiffy bag if you want to save money on postage.

These will come in handy
Very good price for this type of product. I grimace whenever I see people buying these for £2.50 from WHSmith or the post office.

For certain items, like things that crush easily, this will be better than using a jiffy bag. Otherwise, jiffy bags, especially used ones, are way more cost effective. Look at local markets and ebay and you'll see they can be 5-10p each.

Computer components mainly, motherboards and graphics cards or anything with sticking up capacitors I wouldn't want in a bag, no matter how padded.
Also things like open speakers and things that can bend but really shouldn't be like laptop LCDs, keyboards.
I got some laptop plastic surround in the post in a jiffy bag and the corner had snapped off.

wilkinsons and poundworld tend to be quite good at postage supplies aswell
I noticed this the other day. I would stock up as anything other than the jiffy bags seem to appear for a week then dissapear...

Really? I'm not sure they are that heavy! For a small packet it is the same price up to 750 grams.

Yes sorry, you're right. I was thinking of the old prices when i wrote that. The boxes are about three times heavier than a jiffy bag, but it doesn't matter as much as it used to because Royal Mail have now reduced the number of weight categories. So there's much less chance than before of your postage costs being pushed up to the next weight bracket if you use these boxes. But if it does push your postage up to the next weight bracket then you could be paying an extra £1.30 in postage when using this box. It's unlikely to happen though.

These components you mentioned would have their own boxes, so there is no need to put these boxes containing the components into yet another box to send them. Just wrap the component box in brown paper and send. Or better still, put the box in a jiffy bag and send.

The motherboard and the speakers you mentioned would be too big to fit in these postage boxes.

good
Only got the large single pack in Loughborough, not the 3 pack small shown above.
Approx internal dimensions: 34cm x 22cm x 11cm.
Not entirely convinced by the self-seal; had to add tape on the top short edges to prevent them from being snagged up.
