Why Print Envelopes Online?
In many aspects, envelopes can fulfill the same functions as letterheads for your business. As such, they should also represent an integral part of every company’s set of business stationery. Just like letterheads, printing custom envelopes has the potential to professionalize the image of your business, while increasing your trustworthiness and the consistency of your company communications. Branded envelopes represent the perfect medium to mail quotes, invoices, contracts, or any other corporate document.
Envelopes come in a variety of shapes and formats, that can be split up in 2 main categories: business/catalog envelopes and stationery envelopes. On the one hand, business and catalog envelopes are large format envelopes that are used for mailing larger amounts of sheets, catalogs, samples, or anything similar. A couple of the standard formats for this category of envelopes includes C5 (162x229mm), C4 (229x324mm), 10x13 inch, and 10x14 inch. Stationery envelopes on the other hand, are smaller formats used more regularly in everyday life for mailing a small amount of sheets of paper (typically up to 5 sheets). Some standard stationery formats include for instance no.9 (235x108mm) and DL (220x110mm), among others.
When printing envelopes, there are a couple of elements to consider. Mainly, the proper information needs to be displayed on the envelope, and the design needs to be kept clean, simple, and professional. In terms of information, make sure to include your main corporate information like for instance Company Name, Logo, Address, Telephone Number, Website. Nothing else is really needed, as it risks overloading the amount of information on the envelope. The information that you do include should be aimed at creating credibility, and instilling a sense of trust with the people who open your envelopes.
In terms of design and lay-out, your printed envelopes should reinforce the image and corporate identity of your business. Creativity is welcome, but it is important to remain professional. Play with lay-out and background colors to keep the envelope simple, but with clear references to your brand’s design language. One of the main advantages of printing envelopes is to make your communications stand out from the rest as soon as a person collects his mail. It is therefore in your interest to make them as recognizable as possible, in a classy way. In the end, printing envelopes in high quality, and sending them to customers and partners will make them feel valued. For more information on envelope design, read more in our blog post.
