Printed envelopes are customized with the desired design as early as the printing of the sheet of paper from which are manufactured the envelopes. The customization of envelopes is recommended when the graphic elements cover more than 30 percent or if we have an exacting graphic design that requires using special colors (silver, gold, Pantone). It is also recommended if the graphic design reaches the edges of the printed envelope.
Printed envelopes allow you to obtain atypical formats, which can be an impact customization on its own, and this way you can differentiate and consolidate your company brand. You can also choose special papers (enameled, nacreous, textured, natur, mass colored, etc.) or special finishes (plasticization, selective lacquering, etching) that will help you create your identity and will increase the attention that the receiver will pay to the content of the customized envelope. The printed envelopes can be ordered with a buffer stock, only if the stock is paid in advance.

Printed envelopes - useful information
In order to make the right decision in printing the envelopes you need, you have to consider the following:
- insert dimensions (the printed envelope should be 1 cm longer and 0.5cm higher than the insert). If you want to put in the printed envelope a magazine with a lot of pages, a pouch will be necessary, a pouch that can vary in dimensions;
- the delivery method;
- the sealing of envelopes (adhesive, self-adhesive or silicone);
- the positioning of the opening for the printed envelopes (the envelopes used for automatically inserted correspondence have their opening on the large side while the envelopes used for documents have it on the small side);
- what you want printed on the envelope, to determine either you can use offset paper, kraft paper or special paper (the thickness of the paper used for envelopes should be maximum 135g/sm. If paper over 150g/sm thick is used the envelopes should be plasticized, otherwise “cracks” of the print can appear on the ribbed surface).
