Since the envelope is the first thing a customer, potential customer, investor or guest sees, an impressively printed envelope can play a critical role in your communication. Will the recipient read the contents or discard the communication without even opening it? The envelope could make the difference. There is always an envelope option to fit your printing budget. It could be black ink printed on a carefully chosen paper stock or a full colour, embossed, foiled and custom die-cut envelope (or somewhere in-between). We can help you find the right fit.
Envelopes come in a wide variety of stocks from commodity grades to fine papers. If the quantity justifies it, you can even choose the perfect stock and have the envelopes custom manufactured.
A range of recycled and Forest Stewardship Council certified envelope stocks are available.
Because most envelopes are printed on pre-manufactured envelopes and due to the need to meet Canada Post regulations, there are some limitations on finishing options for envelopes. Various colours of foil are quite successful in giving that special touch. Envelopes that are not intended to go through a laser printer can be “thermo embossed” (raised printing). This is very useful for producing classy envelopes for hand-addressed wedding invitations and other prestigious affairs.
If the quantity justifies it, custom envelope conversion is an option. This means that the envelope is printed on the flat sheet of the chosen paper and subsequently diecut, folded and glued to create the envelope. This gives more choice in paper stocks and allows embossing and printing images that “bleed” off the edge of the envelope.
