Custom Paper Envelopes With Digital Printing!

We are proud to announce that for the first time ever, our very popular unpadded paper envelopes are now available with digital printing customization. For the long history of this product, they were great for a variety of reasons (affordability, sustainability, ease of use and function) but somewhat limited in terms of customization/branding/graphics due to the printing process. Most designs were limited to 1 or 2 colors, with no complex graphics and minimal color overlap. Now that is no longer the case, as you can print practically any design you can dream of at a very affordable price and low minimum! This development and capability is brand new and we’re excited to see what exciting designs our customers come up with.


Why Digital Printing?

The results speak for themselves. Take one look at the image below and you can see the amazing color and pop that can be achieved on these mailers. This is a complete game-changer for your brand as you are now no longer limited by printing constraints, but only by your imagination.


What is the Cost?

Surprisingly comparable to standard flexographic printing. And you no longer have to worry about initial print plate fees. Please reach out to us to get a quote today!

What is the Minimum?

As is true of any of our unpadded paper envelopes, the minimum remains a low 1 case (200-500 mailers).

What are the Lead Times?

This is perhaps the best news of all, in that printing digitally can reduce normal 4 week lead times to as low as 2 weeks as of the time of writing this post!

Can I print on White or Kraft?

Yes, you can print digitally on either envelope. Printing on kraft results in a softer, more pastel look. Printing on white makes your colors bolder, as it’s a bright finish with more pop. This really comes down to customer preference.

Are the Mailers Still Eco Friendly?

Absolutely. Digital printing is still accomplished with water based inks, and the mailer is fully recyclable and made from the same recycled content as before.
