Details at a glance

Superb first appearances. Whether you choose to advertise on the outside of your envelopes, or simply incorporate your logo and return address, your image is enhanced even before your customer has opened the correspondence.

Print choices. We can print in up to five spot colours or full process colour (CMYK). We will be happy to advise the most cost-effective choice for your particular application; just call our Design Advice Line on 01457 778404.

Pre-made envelopes. Ideal for smaller quantities, these are envelopes which arrive at our printing plant ready-made and are simply overprinted. They do have limitations, such as not being able to be printed within 10mm of any edge, but providing your specifications overcome these barriers they are a very cost-effective choice.

Printed-then-made envelopes. These envelopes have none of the limitations above since they are constructed from sheets which are printed first. It is possible to print on every part of the envelope and on the inside as well, if required. However, printed-then-made envelopes are prohibitively expensive in smaller quantities because of the labour involved in turning printed sheets into finished envelopes. We can manufacture printed-then-made envelopes of any size.

* indicates this envelope type is not available windowed. All other types are available windowed or unwindowed.

Please note that self-seal envelopes have a guaranteed shelf life of 12 months due to the perishable nature of the latex seal. In practice, envelopes can be expected to last considerably longer than 12 months but the manufacturer guarantees them only for this length of time.

Turnaround time

Pre-made envelopes are despatched within 8 working days. Printed-then-made envelopes are despatched within 18 working days.

VAT guidance
