Full Color Envelope Printing With Discounted Printing

Four-color envelope printing offers an almost unlimited palette of color choices and can provide a great "wow" factor for your customers, allowing your designs to creatively communicate the professional image you want to convey. Although many businesses are concentrating their advertising dollars on online marketing like emails and banner ads, they fail to reach many valuable customers by doing so. Only the mail can guarantee that your message gets to every home in your service area, and customers are actually more likely to notice your message if they pick it up and hold it in their hands. Envelope printing is a practical way to market your company when you send your clients invoices, statements or other communication. Colorful, attractive envelopes simply demand attention more than a nondescript email that may end up in the spam folder without the recipient noticing it at all.

There's an old saying that is true when meeting new people, answering the phone, or walking into any new situation. And it's also true when you send a mailing to your customers: "You get only one chance to make a good first impression."" That's why you want your company's envelopes to attract positive attention to your business when potential customers pull them from their mailboxes.

What about your mailings will set them apart from all the other pieces of mail people receive? What look do you want to convey-trustworthy and professional? fun and exciting? humorous? serious? What is it about your mailing that will make the recipient interested enough to open the envelope and read its contents?

Sometimes our customers don't fully understand the phrase "four-color printing". (Only four colors? I want lots of colors, not just four!) Four-color printing actually gives you full-color envelopes. The term "four-color printing" is used by the printing industry because the printing process is based on only four colors cyan (blue), magenta (red), yellow, and black. It is also sometimes referred to as CMYK printing, with the term "key" representing black. Cyan, magenta, yellow, and black combine to create over six million different colors! So, with four-color envelope printing, your choices are truly nearly limitless.

Choose a design from one of our appealing templates or provide your own design based on your company's branding. Here are a couple of things to keep in mind -

  1. Please allow room in the design for postage and displaying the address. Postal regulations require that these areas be clear and legible.
  2. Remember that with a four-color printing process, you have the option of a full bleed - the design can go to the very edge of the envelope (no white gutter around the edge). We've found that customers really appreciate this feature, which gives an added layer of professionalism and visual appeal.

    • 70# Uncoated Text
    • 70# Classic Linen Text

    70# Uncoated Text

    The 70# Uncoated White Smooth paper is a heavier, more durable paper. Its relatively heavy weight means that it is not a good choice for letterhead since it is too thick for use in laser printers. However, it is a great option for applications where a more sturdy paper is necessary. The paper does not have a glossy coating, yet it is still very smooth to the touch.

    70# Classic Linen Text

    This type of paper in 70# weight is the choice for wedding invitations, special occasion announcements or anything in print that you want to convey elegance. It is laser and inkjet printable, and the texture resembles fine linen fabric. Linen text paper is available in assorted colors and is a great background for your printed sentiments.

    Quantity

    The quantity available is dependent on the order specifications you choose. To see available quantities, complete all order specifications in the pricing calculator and click on the "Quantity" dropdown menu.

    Due to our printing process, we print in specific quantity increments. If you would like an amount not listed in the pricing calculator, you have two options.

    1. Request a custom estimate for the specific quantity you need
    2. Order a larger quantity and ask us to ship only what you need

    Ordering one of our specified quantities is generally more affordable than a custom estimate. Let us know how many units you would like shipped and we will recycle the excess for you. Simply choose the amount of items you would like recycled under the "shipping" section after placing your order.

    For example, if you would like 700 units, you can order 1000 units and let us know you only want 700 shipped. We will responsibly dispose of the extras.

    We typically print more than the quantity ordered. Because printing is a manufacturing process, the total finished quantity may vary. We usually ship a few more than you order, but sometimes quantities can vary +/- 5%. Standard industry procedure is to consider this range shipment in full.

    When to choose Offset

    4-Color Offset printing is ideal for lower prices on large quantity orders or any time you would like coating on your products.

    Almost always, people choose this option when ordering large quantities.
