It’s time to get a little more creative and splashy – which your friends at Time Printers can help you with! Please be aware that we will be closed on Monday, July 5th, in observance of the 4th of July holiday. However, we are still here to serve you with some fantastic advice for creating fireworks-worthy business envelopes!

Indicate the Areas That Shouldn’t Be Used 

First and foremost, you’ll want to point out that some areas of the envelope are unusable. What does this mean, precisely? They aren’t suitable for carrying printing-related features. Mailing information and postmarks covering up your beautiful design will decrease their impressiveness. Plus, the USPS could decline to deliver your mail to customers based on erroneous design choices. The US Postal Service defines several standards in this regard, so it’s best to read up on what those are before proceeding. Once you’ve blocked off these areas, save that particular design file as a template. It’ll help you save time in the future!  

Inquire About the Border Bleed Effect

Border bleed is another aspect of printing that could go horribly wrong. Choosing the bleed-type sounds complex, but it isn’t. Ultimately, it comes down to asking the right questions. After all, the physical cutting and printing of the envelope are just as important as how heavy the stock is and how visually captivating the finished product is. Here, communication is key, especially since miscommunications can cause frustrating misunderstandings that will be costly to rectify. 

Rethink How You Address the Envelope 

Addressing the actual stack of envelopes sounds easy to do. Even so, you might want to stop and think about how you manage it. Will the relevant names and addresses be printed directly onto the stock? Or will blank printable labels be used instead? Getting a direct answer to this question is hugely influential on how the design of your envelopes will unfold. 

Consider Using Two-Sided Designs 

Excellent graphic design skills call for an artistic eye. However, tight budgets can clamp down on how imaginative you get. For instance, you could end up having two-sided designs or one-sided designs. It all depends on how much you can afford. Two-sided designs are typically more expensive productions.
