COLLEGE STATION, Texas - Sept. 3, 2015 - PRLog -- Back in 1957, on the good ole Jersey Shore, a beautiful invention was made: bubble wrap.  Marc Chavannes and Alfred Fielding sealed two separate shower curtains together interwoven with air pockets. At the outset they tried to sell this as wallpaper.  Unfortunately this was not a smashing hit, and it did not go anywhere wallpaper-wise.  Apparently people did not like the look of bubbles all over their walls, although I cannot imagine why not. After the wallpaper fail, the duo marketed their “bubble wrap” as greenhouse insulation.  Three years later it was branded by Sealed Air Corporation and one year after that it was discovered as an effective product packaging to keep items nice and safe during transit.  The first client to incorporate bubble wrap rolls into their company was IBM in order to protect their computers and software during shipment. You are so welcome for that knowledge.

Today, 55 years later, we still use bubble wrap.  Bubble wrap can be found in roll form as well as bag form.  It can be purchased in home office stores, shipping stores, as well as online.  The most affordable retailer is PackagingSupplies.com.  They offer various sizes of bubble wrap rolls, thickness of the bubbles themselves, and you can even purchase it in self-dispensing boxes.  They have a pink anti-static form for those of you who do not like your hair to stand up on end when packaging and shipping supplies.  For the rest of you, you can select standard clear bubble wrap rolls.

Bubble wrap, although most commonly used to protect items during shipment, also has other uses.  Popping bubble wrap has proven stress relief capabilities.  Sealed Air Corporation has developed the “stress-relief box” that is filled with bubble wrap for employees to pop.  It also provides hours of fun for children of all ages (and adults if you are cool like that).  There have been other inventions such as the bubble wrap wheelchair, bubble wrap door cover, and even a bubble wrap kite!  Who knew!  I don’t know about you, but I’m sure glad bubble wrap was invented.  And I know that the next time I need to stock up on bubble wrap rolls (http://www.packagingsupplies.com/Bubble_Wrap_Products.html), either for the heck of it or for mailing gifts, I will head to PackagingSupplies.com for the best options as well as the most affordable prices.
