We frequently print mailings here at the shop, and that means envelopes.
We get out a box, run them through the Xerox, and out they come, the address printed and ready to be stuffed for mailing!
But perhaps you’re new to print-buying and aren’t sure which type of envelope is right for your job. Maybe you want a generic sort of envelope in which you can send bills and business correspondence in.
Or it could be that you’re looking for a special envelope in which to send out invitations to your company’s annual dinner or Christmas party.
Whatever type of envelope you’re looking for, we can be sure to help you find it. Different types of envelopes work better for different types of correspondence, but here are some of the most common.
For standard business mailings, the white #10 envelope is the go-to choice for many of our customers.
It’s ideal for sending out memos, notices, bills, remittances, and more. We provide our #10 envelopes with or without the window.
For special occasions, such as invitations, thank-you notes, and more personal communications, we recommend the A-2.
With a square flap and a neat, compact design, the A-2 is just what you need to send letters, invitations, and RSVPs. It’s perfect for stuffing a card or letter inside.
I happen to use A-2 envelopes to send out the shop’s thank-you notes in. We put the Renton Printery’s logo and return address on the front, leaving room to write in the recipient’s address. It works wonderfully!
If you ever need any help picking out an envelope for your mailing job, you can always ask us at the shop. Whether its internal mail, billing, or event invites, we’ll be glad to assist you in picking out just the right type of envelope for your order. Remember, at the Renton Printery, we’re printing for you!
