The Original Jiffy Padded® Bag

Jiffy Packaging Company Limited was incorporated by the Baldwin family in 1964 to produce its namesake Jiffy Padded Bags. The Baldwins had produced wood wool in Birmingham since 1896 and Manchester since 1926 but chose Winsford in Cheshire as the base for their new company.

Born in 1964, the original Jiffy Padded® Bag® has stood the test of time. Offering brilliant performance in burst strength, durability and cushioning.

The original Jiffy bags were made of a paper outer, an inner layer of thinner paper and shredded used newsprint sandwiched in between to provide the protective padding. As the bag is used the recycled material bulks out like a quilt during its journey and becomes more and more protective!

The famous ‘million-mile’ Jiffy Bag was an original Jiffy padded bag that travelled back and forth between the UK and New Zealand 50 times, clocking up an incredible million miles delivering audio letters between pen friends.
