Envelopes are extremely important in to execute properly. When you send mail in an envelope, you want your piece to receive the attention expected. The design of an envelope could influence the rates of response significantly.

One of the first things a customer sees when you send a printed envelope is the presentation. Whether you receive a letter, invoice or purchase order from a lawyer, accountant or even from a collection agency, you will know instantly who it is from.  Color printing on envelopes is instantly recognizable.  In addition to the professionalism, the envelope printing represents a branding image of their company. It resonates in the mind of the beholder long after they set the letter and #10 envelope down.

Why is having a color logo on your envelope necessary?
One of the other benefits of having custom printed envelopes is that you are not limited to just a company logo our corporate name. In fact, the design options are just about endless. Did you know that envelopes can be printed all over with colorful marketing messages? Imagine if you had an art company, for example.  You could have a custom paintbrush color printed on the background; even on a 10 window envelope or envelopes 10 x 13 in size.


Getting some color graphic design done will give you that bold branding that every business needs to stay ahead of the competition.
Color printing on envelopes also offers an opportunity to present focused messages.  Some companies use color envelopes for marketing research advertising. Free envelope printing services may be available, however may not project the image of the company as best as professional color envelopes printed by a reputable printing company.

Which is Better – Square Envelopes or Rectangular Envelopes?
Depending on what application you use for getting your mail out may dictate your choice. Of course, a square envelope will fit wide paper and invitations nicely, but the real question is which shape is better to operate on a day-to-day basis with and whether you should invest in having your envelopes color printed or not? No matter which type of letter you need to send, getting your company logo or corporate name color printed on your envelopes looks professional and gets your brand identity out on the market.

The truth is that envelopes printed in full color are much better – and surprisingly affordable – in comparison to one-color printed envelopes.  Imagine a company newsletter arriving in a professional looking custom printed color envelope as opposed to traditional methods.  Don't sell your company short by not getting your envelopes professionalized with color printing. Give your business a chance to rise above the rest and give your business a chance to be maximized.Picture showing multi page catalogs being produced by Color Copies USA
