How can you tell the quality of bubble wrap?

The size has to be right. This is an obvious one, but highly important nonetheless. Make sure you measure the item you are looking to wrap up, look at the precise sizing measurements of the bubble wrap you are buying, and make sure that the length and width of the bubble wrap easily cover the items you need to protect. If it doesn’t cover it properly, it simply won’t do the job for you.

Make sure it is good quality bubble wrap. If you shop purely on price, it will often get you a poor quality type of wrapping that may break and tear apart and won’t do the job properly of protection. The best idea to ensure you get good quality bubble wrap is to buy directly from a manufacturer where possible and pick a mid of range-priced roll of bubble wrap rather than simply the cheapest.

Make sure you do not buy too much bubble wrap. Your roll of wrapping must cover your items, but at the same time, if it is too long, then you are simply paying for too much, that you do not need. It is bad for the environment too, so don’t go crazy with the quantity.

Make sure you differentiate between bubble wrap with large bubbles and bubble wrap with smaller bubbles. For your bigger items, you will need bigger bubbles. They provide that little bit of extra protection from damage and give extra cushioning. But for smaller items, the smaller bubbles do just fine. You can give a double layer of wrapping to your things with smaller bubbles which will give you the same level of protection as using larger bubbles, and it can be cheaper this way too.
