A Wide Variety of Sizes and Formats for Your Envelopes

You have more choices for sizes and styles when you print envelopes from PrintPlace. Our printing experts make sure that every job is done right by providing 1-color and full-color envelope printing and manufacturing on-site in our print shop.

You can customize your envelopes to fit the needs of your business. All specs can be selected on the online calculator:
  • Indicate if you need a full-color or 1-color design. The former works for a color combination, while the latter works for a simpler look.
  • Choose the right envelope size. Envelope sizes depend on the color format. Full-color envelopes are available in A6, A7, #9, and #10 premium envelopes; 6” x 9”, 9” x 12”, and 10” x 13” book and catalog envelopes. The 1-color envelopes come in A2, A6, A7, #10, and 6” x 9” or 9” x 12” booklet envelopes.
  • Select a quantity that works with your mail correspondences. You can order at least 25 full-color and 250 1-color envelopes, and up to 250,000 full-color and 100,000 1-color envelopes.

Apart from the features previously listed, there are other ways PrintPlace can serve as your printing solution:

1- to 2-day Printing: Our full-color envelopes can be printed on the same day you submit your design. We’ll ship them the day after you place your order. 1-color envelopes, on the other hand, can be printed in 2 business days.

Here’s our quick guide to turnaround times for more information.

Upload a PDF file or use the available templates. Submit your artwork if it is print-ready after selecting “Upload Now” at the bottom of the calculator. If you have yet to create a design, you can download a layout template in EPS, PDF, TIFF, and PUB format. Head to the “Layout Templates” tab to open the ZIP folder with all these files.

5 Advantages of Custom Envelope Printing

Did you know that an envelope is more likely to be opened if it includes a colorful logo?

Custom envelope printing can enhance your efforts and reinforce your brand image. Back up your marketing efforts by using professional, attractive envelopes.

Image of various envelopes.

You may not have given your envelopes much thought before. You stuff them with a letter or a brochure, attach a stamp, and drop them in the mail, without giving them a second thought. Once that envelope leaves your hands though, it takes on a life of its own. It is your only item that will be visible in your potential customer's mailbox. It is the determining factor between whether its contents are read or pitched.

That places a lot of responsibility on your envelope and proves it is an important part of your stationery package.
  1. Design an envelope with a unique size to make it stand out.
    To create an envelope that fulfills its marketing potential, it needs to be better than the average. For a unique appeal, bump your envelope size up to 6 x 9. The larger size not only makes your envelope stand out from #10 envelopes, but it also gives you more room to add a colorful slogan or call to action to your design. It also mails at the same rate as #10 envelopes, so you can make a bigger impact for the same postage cost.
  2. The #10 business envelope is the most common size used for letter mailings.
    If the standard #10 envelope is best for you, you can still make it stand out from the rest by including colorful graphics or an offer or intriguing statement in a different color. You aren’t limited to the front of the envelope though. Add something to the back or flap if you’d like.
  3. Use premium paper.
    This may seem like a small thing, but printing business envelopes on premium paper give a professional impression, which means your envelope and contents won’t be confused with “junk mail.”
  4. Take advantage of full-color printing.
    You can often do so for the same price as one-color, giving you more return for your marketing dollars.
  5. Print custom business envelopes that match your letterhead.
    Use the same logo, design, and paper stock to complete a cohesive look. You could even take the opportunity to design and print an entire business identity package with custom business envelopes, pocket folders, business cards, and labels as well.

Envelope Marketing and Design Ideas

Printing envelopes enhances and reinforces your brand image. Envelopes convey a professional and uniform look for your business correspondence and greatly increase the chance that your customers will read what is inside.

Recipients are more likely to open a personalized envelope – and thus, more likely to read your marketing message. Envelope sizes #9, #10, A6, A7, and 6” x 9” all mail at the same postal rate as a 5” x 7”, 6” x 9” or 6” x 11” postcard, so why not mix up your marketing?

Print envelopes and try mailing a letter for your next marketing campaign.
