ENVELOPE PRINTING: FOR MANUAL AND MACHINE PROCESSING
To print envelopes online, you have to choose the type of envelope first: Machine insertable envelopes and manually inserted envelopes. There is a small difference between the two: The flaps are either self-adhesive or have a seal gum.
The self seal option only requires the adhesive strip at the flap to be peeled off in order to seal the envelope. The seal gum envelope, in contrast, has to be moistened by a machine to activate the glue.
Regardless of the sealing type, we use CMYK and optionally one or two spot colours to print all our envelopes so that you can design custom envelopes that are instantly recognized by your customers. To mail documents that should not be folded or when mailing and delivering larger items like brochures or notepads, we offer mailers and envelopes in portrait orientation with an adhesive strip for easy closing.
THE RIGHT SIZE OF YOUR ENVELOPE
Our product range comprises B and C series envelopes and mailers and the Q4+ format. Our best-selling envelope size is the C series. DL (C series) envelopes are traditionally used for business correspondence.
A5 greeting cards or invitations, however, are usually mailed in C6 envelopes. C4 or B4 envelopes are usually used for unfolded documents.
By the way: You can optionally define whether your envelopes or mailers should have the window on the left or right side or whether you prefer no window at all.
PRINTING ENVELOPES FOR MAILING CAMPAIGNS
Our envelopes are also ideal for mailing campaigns For advertising content, general customer information and other correspondence, we recommend machine insertable C5 envelopes (22.9 mm x 16.2 mm) or machine insertable C5/6 envelopes (22.9 mm x 11.4 mm) with left window position. Include spot colours to add an eye-catching element to your mailing campaigns. You can place your logo either to the right of the window or on the reverse side of the envelope.
FAQ – ENVELOPES
1. Are there any design specifications for envelope printing?
Please leave out the area of the adhesive strips and of the window when designing the artwork and add 2 mm bleed on all sides. See the product page for additional specifications. You will also find free design templates for your envelopes there.
2. What should be printed on the envelope?
You can use the envelope as a small advertising space and print your name, claim and/or logo on it. This will make your letter and message stand out among the pile of mail in the recipient's letter box.
3. Are envelopes also printed on both sides?
We print the front and back of the envelopes for you. The inside of the envelope is grey.
