As a business owner, finding ways to reduce shipping costs isn't just important - it's critical to your success. And while using inferior products for shipping supplies is an option, it can result in the opposite of the desired goal due to increased product damage.
What if we told you there was a way to reduce shipping costs and increase the security of your product throughout storage and shipping? If you're like most of the business owners we've spoken to, you'll say "WOW" as in Frank Lowe's WOW Pads. Let's take a closer look at WOW Pads and how they can be used to reduce shipping costs.
Frank Lowe's WOW Pads are designed to outperform other protective solutions and deliver an exceptional return on investment. So much so, our WOW Pads can reduce shipping costs by lowering the amount of products damaged during shipping.
Warehouses and shops can say goodbye to bubble wrap, kraft paper, cardboard, packaging peanuts, and other supplies that often leads to dents, scratches and other transportation defects. WOW Pads boasts outstanding compression and recoil and are engineered to provide exceptional protection throughout shipping by:
Similar to a Post-It Note, WOW Pads feature a removable adhesive on one side, so you can simply peel and stick it to your product. And when you're ready to remove it, the pads will not damage your product or leave any residue. Best of all, WOW Pads are tiny and can help you reduce shipping costs.
If your shipping costs are climbing or are already high, the materials you use to package and ship your product may actually be the culprit. Simply put, bulky shipping and packing materials all add weight to your packages, and every ounce counts!
For instance, if you're using cardboard to protect your product, you can rest assured the cardboard is adding weight. And while it may seem inconsequential, when you add up all of the cardboard shipped over any specific period, you'll recognize the potential savings.
On the other hand, Wow Pads are small squares that can be custom die cut to the specific needs of your product. Instead using more packaging materials for added levels of protection, you can use a minimal number of WOW Pads to give your product the highest level of protection. WOW Pads are available in a vast number of sizes and thicknesses based on the unique needs of your product, including including 1/8", 1/4”, 3/8” and 1/2” thickness from 3/4” x 3/4” squares and larger.
Far too often, we recognize companies go to great lengths with packaging supplies to protect their product and rightly so. However, the majority of these packaging solutions are overdone or over engineered.
In addition to the weight of the package, shipping carriers charge based on the size of the package. And when you over engineer the packaging for your product, you're more likely to be charged more in shipping due to more weight or more girth.
Instead of over engineering your packaging, Frank Lowe's WOW Pads allow you to right size it from the beginning. WOW Pads are uniquely designed to provide the perfect amount of cushioning and compression room to keep your product safe throughout shipping.
These pads are ideal for preventing chips, dents, scratches, and other common shipping damages. Best of all, WOW Pads do it in the most cost-effective and space-efficient manner possible, helping you to prevent over engineering and overpaying for shipping.
When it comes to business, time is money! And every minute your employees spend unnecessarily applying protective packaging solutions — like wrapping bubble wrap around your product — is lost productivity. However, Frank Lowe's WOW Pads are designed to quickly and easily apply to your product and provide maximum protection.
Featuring an easy-to-use peel-and-stick adhesive, your employees can apply WOW Pads in a matter of seconds. There is no need for wrapping countless revolutions of bubble wrap or applying tape. This expedited application method means your employees can spend less time coming up with creative packaging solutions and more time engaging in profit-driving activities.
Being required to keep an inventory of shipping supplies takes space, which could be more effectively used to house product or items more closely related to generating revenue. For example, if you use bubble wrap as a protective packaging solution, those rolls of bubble wrap can quickly eat up valuable floor space. At the same time, the large bags of styrofoam peanuts, reams of craft paper, or pallets of cardboard all require a substantial allotment of space.
Instead of wasting square feet on housing shipping supplies, WOW Pads offer superior protection and take up exponentially less space. These pads are offered die cut on a roll or on sheets, which means you can easily house thousands of pads in a fraction of the space of any other equivalent shipping solution.
If you're looking for ways to reduce your shipping costs, simply say WOW. And fortunately, you don't have to take our word for it. You check out Frank Lowe's new WOW Pads for yourself. Contact Frank Lowe today to request a WOW Pad sample.
