Key features

Specification

  1. Materials

    1. Sf

      Straight flap

      An envelope with a rectangular flap. Due to the large glue area, straight flap envelopes are a secure way to send heavier items.
    2. V

      V-flap

      An envelope with a triangular flap. The v-shaped flap gives the envelope an elegant finish whilst also securing what’s inside. Ideal for greeting cards or marketing materials.
    3. G

      Gummed

      Gummed adhesive requires activation by water contact. Before activation gummed adhesive is not sticky making the envelopes easy to transport and store. To use gummed adhesive, simply activate with water and fold the flap of the envelope down to secure it.
    4. S

      Self-seal

      Commonly used on envelopes packed by a machine. The self-seal adhesive is pressure-activated and does not need water or heat to activate. To seal, simply fold the flap down.
    5. Sp

      Single peel & seal

      One strip of adhesive covered with a fibre-based backing paper. To seal an envelope with single peel & seal, simply remove the backing paper and fold down the flap.
    6. Dp

      Double peel & seal

      Two strips of adhesive covered with fibre-based backing paper. A double peel & seal makes returns easy for your customers. We recommend a double peel & seal for larger envelopes.

    10. Bp

      Brown paper

      FSC certified, unbleached paper made from virgin pulp. Brown paper is more sustainable than white paper as it doesn’t involve the bleaching process. Colours may appear slightly muted because of its brown colour.
    11. Wr

      White recycled paper

      FSC certified, this bleached recycled paper is made from recycled paper pulp. It’s more sustainable than using virgin materials but is often more expensive.

      100gsm

      One of the most common envelope thicknesses. 100gsm (standard) envelopes are durable and cost-effective, suitable for shipping documents or smaller brochures.
    14. 1

      150gsm

      A thicker paper stock, 150gsm (premium) envelopes create a more premium feel as well as offering more protection. Ideal for shipping heavier items.
    15. 2

      200gsm

      The thickest and most durable option. 200gsm (luxury) paper is stiffer than other options so we don’t recommend choosing it for smaller envelope sizes.
