Sealed Air Selects 10 Semi-Finalists in Inaugural Bubble Wrap® Competition For Young Inventors

ELMWOOD PARK, N.J., Monday, December 18, 2006 – Sealed Air Corporation (NYSE:SEE), the creator of Bubble Wrap® brand cushioning, today announced that it has selected 10 semi-finalists in the first-ever Bubble Wrap® Competition for Young Inventors

The competition, which encouraged students in grades 5 through 8 throughout the United States to demonstrate their creativity and ingenuity by designing an invention that incorporated the use of Bubble Wrap® cushioning, attracted nearly 800 entries from 38 states. Students were invited to submit original inventions along with a visual and written description that included the name of the invention, the purpose it serves, how it works and how the idea was formulated.

The 10 semi-finalists that were selected are as follows:

Max Aifer, 10, Arlington, Virginia – “Solar-Powered Bubble Wrap® Boat”– Solar-powered boat that requires no batteries and is propelled through the water via small solar panels.

Alex Chalcraft, 13, Gilbert, Arizona – “The Easy Check Chore Chart” – Chore chart that lists a series of weekly tasks and allows children to pop a bubble each time they complete a chore.
Henry Clayton, 13, New Canaan, Connecticut – “Bubble Muffler” – Reduces or muffles the noise level of a drum set without compromising its tonal quality.
Megan Guerrero, 13, San Angelo, Texas – “The Empire State Building: A Three-Dimensional Construction Project” – Three-dimensional puzzle that uses custom-cut pieces of Bubble Wrap® cushioning to build a 2.5 foot replica of the Empire State Building.
Sheldon Keel, 11, Grayslake, Illinois – “Ann T. Stress Doll” – Bubble Wrap® doll that helps “decrease frustrations and increase patience.”
Devin Kilbarger, 12, Mt. Sterling, Ohio – “Bubble Wrap® Seed Incubator” – Mini greenhouse that incubates seeds and evenly spaces them inside individual Bubble Wrap® bubbles.

Grayson Rosenberger, 14, Nashville, Tennessee – “Bubble Wrap® Cosmetic Covering Shell for Artificial Legs in Developing Countries” – Cost-effective, cosmetic skin covering for artificial leg designed to conceal the prosthetic limb and create the appearance of muscle tone.
“Sealed Air and its panel of judges were astounded by the hundreds of outstanding entries we received,” stated William V. Hickey, Sealed Air’s President and Chief Executive Officer. “We were truly inspired by the creativity and innovative vision of America’s young minds and how they applied their talents to devise inventions with one of our most beloved and trusted products. The caliber of entries made it very difficult for the judges to select the 10 semi-finalists.”

In early January, three finalists will be chosen from this group and will win a three-day trip to New York City, where the Grand Prize Winner will be announced on Bubble Wrap® Appreciation Day, January 29, 2007. In addition, the Grand Prize Winner will receive a $10,000 savings bond, while the 2nd and 3rd place winners will receive $5,000 and $3,000 respectively in savings bonds. The remaining seven semi-finalists will each receive $500 in savings bonds.

Submissions were judged in coordination with the National Museum of Education and were ranked based on their originality, creativity, practicality, benefit to society, marketability and feasibility, as well as overall presentation. Entries received ranged from a Bubble Wrap® saddle cushion and portable candy packaging to an instrument case and fish tank decor.

Bubble Wrap® cushioning was invented by Sealed Air’s founders in 1960 and was originally intended to be used as a type of textured wallpaper. The inventors quickly realized it was actually a superior cushioning material, and Sealed Air is now a global, Fortune 500 company that offers a wide range of packaging solutions, has operations in 51 countries and has annual sales in excess of $4 billion. Sealed Air is widely recognized for its strong commitment to innovation, and continues to be an industry leader in research and development.

The Bubble Wrap® Competition for Young Inventors is sponsored by Sealed Air and administered by the National Museum of Education. For additional information on Bubble Wrap® brand cushioning and the competition, visit www.bubblewrap.com.

UPS, FEDEX Ground, & USPS Priority Mail - Dimensional Weight to play large roll in shipping costs during 2007

Hello to All! :)

Over the past few weeks I have been hearing about and researching the new proposed rates for UPS, FEDEX Ground and the USPS. This will affect most every business in some way or another. We thought we would share with you what we have found, so that you can be prepared for the changes and not be surprised when you see your first bill after the new Dimensional rates kick in, in early 2007.

Here is what we know, although we suggest you confirm this information with your UPS representative, FEDEX representative or Local Postmaster for confirmation to be sure all is accurate. Also, from what I read, these new rates are "proposed rates", to take place in 2007.

Looks like in 2007 UPS, FEDEX Ground, and the USPS will change the way packages are measured and billed. All three carriers are implementing a new (new for ground packages) dimensional weight system.

How will this affect sellers? It will greatly affect those sellers that ship larger, lighter items.
Lets look at an example. Lets take a package that weighs 3 lbs and measures 20x20x12. (By UPS, FEDEX GROUND and USPS Priority mail standards, this is currently not considered an oversized package and ships at the 3 lb rate.)

---------------------------------------------------------
USPS Priority Mail:
This item can be shipped currently to zone 1 for $5.00, to zone 8 for $9.00. At the new dimensional weight, for the same product, it would be charged at the 25 lb rate! To zone 1, at the current rate a 25 lb package via Priority mail is $17.30, and the same package to zone 8 $47.40.

Here is how the dimensional weight will be calculated for the USPS Priority Mail.:
How to Determine a Priority Mail Dimensional-Weight Price

For rectangular (box-like) items, measure the length, width, and height. The length is always the longest dimension. Round off each individual measurement to the nearest whole inch (20-1/4 inches is considered 20 inches; 20-3/4 inches is 21 inches). Next, multiply the length by the width by the height. The result is the cubic capacity expressed in cubic inches. If the result is 1,728 cubic inches or less, the parcel is less than 1 cubic foot and dimensional weight pricing does not apply. If the result exceeds 1,728 cubic inches, divide it by 194 (the "dim factor") to determine the dimensional weight. Round up any fraction of a pound to the next whole pound to get the dimensional-weight price for the parcel. If the actual weight of the parcel exceeds the dimensional weight, base the price on the actual weight.
Example:
20 x 20 x 12 = 4800
4800 / 194 = 24.74 pounds
24.74 rounded up is 25 pounds

---------------------------------------------------------
UPS GROUND:
From the UPS website:
Effective January 1, 2007, Oversize charges for larger packages shipped via UPS Ground services will be replaced with a simpler rate calculation based on dimensional weight. Dimensional weight will only apply to UPS Ground packages measuring three cubic feet (5,184 cubic inches) or larger. Packages measuring less than three cubic feet will continue to be billed based on actual weight. As a result of this change, dimensional weight charges will gradually increase as the package size increases, eliminating significant steps from one Oversize tier to the next.


How To Measure Cubic Size
To determine if dimensional weight pricing applies to your package, you must first calculate its cubic size. Follow these steps:
Measure the length, width and height of your package. Round each measurement to the nearest whole inch. (For example, 1.00" to 1.49" will be considered 1 inch, and 1.50" to 1.99" will be considered 2 inches.)
Multiply the length by the width by the height. The result is the cubic size of your package.


How To Calculate Dimensional Weight
Once you have calculated the cubic size of your UPS Ground package and have determined that it is 5,184 cubic inches or greater, you are ready to calculate the dimensional weight. Divide the cubic size of your package by 194 rounding up to the nearest full pound.
UPS Domestic Ground Service
L x W x H / 194

Billable weight will be based on either the actual weight or dimensional weight of your UPS Ground package, whichever is greater.
---end UPS website---

Lets look at a 20"x20"x20" package. Currently is considered oversized and if weighs less than 30 lbs is billed at the 30lb rate. Currently if it weighs over 30lbs, it is billed at its actual weight.

20x20x20=8000 / 194 = 41.23 So a 20x20x20" package currently billed at the 30lb rate will jump to a 42 lb rate

---------------------------------------------------------
FedEx Ground:
From the FedEx website:

FedEx Ground Dimensional Weight Rate Calculation (Effective February 5, 2007)
For FedEx Ground shipments, a rate calculation based on dimensional weight may apply for packages that are 3 cubic feet (5,184 cubic inches) or larger. These packages will be billed based on dimensional weight unless actual weight is greater. Packages smaller than 3 cubic feet will be billed based on actual weight.
---end FedEx Website---

Lets look at a 20"x20"x20" package. Currently is considered oversized and if weighs less than 30 lbs is billed at the 30lb rate. Currently if it weighs over 30lbs, it is billed at its actual weight. 20x20x20=8000 / 194 = 41.23 So a 20x20x20" package currently billed at the 30lb rate will jump to a 42 lb rate

---------------------------------------------------------

Here are the links to the delivery services press releases on their websites. The USPS will use dimensional weight for anything over 1 cubic foot, UPS and FEDEX will use dimensional weight over 3 cubic feet.

UPS: http://ezsnip.com/x.php?o3

FedEx Ground:
http://images.fedex.com/us/rates2007/DimWeight.pdf?link=4

----------------------------------------------------

I am surprised that this has not been in the media or talked about much online as of yet, not that I have come across. This will affect a large portion of sellers of all sizes. Sellers need to be educated now, as these new rules take effect as soon as in January 2007 for UPS. FedEx Ground February 2007 and the USPS Priority Mail in Spring 2007. Some sellers may be able to break down their offerings into multiple smaller packages, instead of shipping one large package and paying the higher rate.

We suggest that you take this time before the new dimensional system kicks in and measure your packaging and if this affects your business start finding alternative ways to package or ship your product. In some cases, if your product can be broken up into multiple boxes, it may be cheaper to ship this way than one larger box. If not see if your product can be resized.

Sorry to be the bearer of possible bad news. I just wanted to share what I have found out, as it doesn't appear that the carriers are educating us, their clients, about these changes. If I can be of any help, please do not hesitate to send me an email.

Thanks again for being our customer, we appreciate your business very much and wouldn't be were we are now without you!

sincerely,

Jason Archambault

Celebrating Bubble Wrap Appreciaton Day 2006 ( BWAD )


BUBBLE WRAP® GETS SOME WELL-DESERVED RESPECT


Lee, FL (January 10, 2006)—Famed comedian Rodney Dangerfield was noted for quipping, "I can’t get no respect" – and some think Dangerfield wasn’t speaking only for himself. The publishers of Chase’s Calendar of Events—noted as ‘the Bible of special occasions’ by the Los Angeles Times—has once again appointed a national Bubble Wrap Appreciation Day (BWAD).


Chase’s Calendar of Events has chosen January 30 as this year’s day when Americans should stop and appreciate the uniqueness and versatility of Bubble Wrap®. Although this is the third consecutive year that Chase’s has appointed a BWAD, some Americans have actually celebrated the day since 2001, when "Spirit 95" radio, an FM station in Bloomington, Indiana, coined the day as part of its ‘Bubblympiad’ event.


Fastpack Packaging a Lee, Florida-based distributor of Bubble Wrap® specializing in color Bubble Wrap®, metallic bubble envelopes, and other unique packaging, hosts a Bubble Wrap® Appreciation Day Web site which features virtual Bubble Wrap® games; fun ideas such as the Bubble Wrap® Game, the Bubble Wrap® Personality Test; and more. To visit the BWAD site, log on to http://www.purplebubblewrap.com/ . For more information about Fastpack Packaging, visit http://www.fastpack.net/ .


The Bubble Wrap® story begins in 1957 in a Hawthorne, New Jersey garage. Two engineers, Marc Chavannes and Al Fielding, were developing plastic wallpaper with a paper backing. After their plastic wallpaper failed to take off in the consumer market, Marc and Al realized that their invention could be used as a packaging material. At the time, only abrasive paper products, which did not bode well with heavy or delicate items, were used for packaging. After raising funds for a developmental product line, Marc and Al incorporated Sealed Air Corporation in 1960. Today, Sealed Air is a leading worldwide manufacturer of numerous protective and specialty packaging materials.
