Athens Is the Packaging Supplies Company Knoxville TN Businesses Have Used Since 1952
A leader in packaging, Athens carries a wide range of protective packaging and shipping supplies. Our product line is very extensive—too extensive to list everything we carry. So, in this blog, we list packaging and shipping supplies that are the most popular.
High-quality Poly Sheets, Poly Bags, Tubing and Equipment
Athens offers poly sheets, poly bags and tubing, and pallet covers. We have poly products available in different mil thicknesses and different sizes. Poly can be clear, colored, or printed. We also supply fully automatic and semi-automatic equipment such as bagging machines.
In the category of protective packaging, we offer the following, to name a few:
- Bubble wrap
- Foam products and expandable foam
- Loose fill products
- Newsprint and kraft paper
- Air pillows
- Poly and kraft mailers
- Corner boards
- Corrugated angle pads

Shrink Film and Stretch Film
Athens carries both shrink film and stretch film. Some people mistakenly use “shink” and “stretch” to describe the same thing. Shrink film is a polymer material that you heat to shrink it tightly around a “finished” item. Stretch film is for wrapping multiple packages together or securing products to a pallet.
Athens carries the most popular kinds of stretch film, including:
- machine grade
- traditional hand film
- pre-stretch film
- banding film
- anti-static film
- vented film
- colored stretch film
Strapping Products, Machines, and Tools
Products for strapping are “bands” or “straps” that bundle products together and secure pallet loads for safe transport and storage. Strapping products come in polyester, polypropylene, cord, and steel.
In addition to the strapping products themselves, we also supply tools for applying the strapping. These include manual, battery, and pneumatic strapping tools.
Carton Sealing Tapes
Athens carries a complete line of tapes that we recommend for sealing cartons. These include:
- reinforced paper tape (also known as strapping tape)
- adhesive tape
- double coated adhesive tape
- water-activated tape
