You just got to the office supply store to pick up business envelopes but now you’re staring at the endless supply of options and your head is swimming. With all the variations available how do you choose just one? Well, the good news is you can, and should, choose multiple options. Here is a brief description of some of the more popular business envelopes. Once you know how and when to use them you can make the best purchases for your company or home office.
Window Envelopes – Most business envelopes come with front windows to showcase the mailing address of the recipient. Whatever you do, make sure that you have a strong supply of standard sized window envelopes. Window envelopes are great for your everyday mailing purposes. They’re good for sending out bills, receipts, thank you letters, announcements and newsletters. For daily mailing purposes this will be your “go to” option. Window Envelopes are professional, easy to use, and clean. Print out your return address, aka your company address, and simply stick them on the upper left hand corner of your window envelopes for fast, easy, every day mailing. Window envelopes look good because they appropriately showcase your recipients name and address.
Self-seal Envelopes – Self-seal envelopes are incredibly convenient but you don’t need to use them for everyday mailing. Save these envelopes for when you mail out sensitive legal documentation. Self-seal envelopes feature a sticky label that you remove, once the sticky label is removed from the back flap of the envelope you can adhere the flap to the envelope. Recipients will be thankful that their sensitive information is properly sealed. If you’re mailing out documents that shouldn’t be folded or bent, make sure to invest into legal sized, self-seal envelopes. Again, as convenient as these envelopes are, you do not need to use them for everyday mailing.
Return Envelopes – If you’re expecting your recipient to respond to your letter, always make sure you include a return envelope. Return envelopes feature your address and are usually pre-paid so that the recipient doesn’t have to pay for postage. Return envelopes are important because they promote a response from your recipient. The receiver is more likely to send payment, a donation or fill out a subscription when they don’t have to dig out their own envelope, address the envelope and pay for postage. For increased responses from recipients always include a return envelope.
