Envelope printing – A cost effective marketing tool

25 April 2018

There’s an old saying – “You only get one chance to make a first impression”. That’s true in all walks of life – and especially so in marketing your business! Businesses who send out physical marketing materials often spend a lot of time, money and energy on getting their content correct, so that it highlights the benefits of their product or service to the fullest. That is, of course, sensible, but businesses very often overlook one of the most important aspects. What is the first thing any potential client actually sees? That’s right – THE ENVELOPE!!

Envelope printing

Your envelope is the introduction to your product, so it should make an impact on your customer – it should make the recipient eager to open it up and discover its contents! So how do you go about doing that?

Get your envelopes printed professionally – design your own company custom envelopes, encompassing features that are immediately recognisable as your brand!

10 things to consider for your custom envelope

  1. It should look professional – use quality paper and materials 
  2. Customise the envelope – include your company logo and brand colours
  3. Use both the front and the back of the envelope to highlight your products and services
  4. Perhaps include a window – offer the read a glimpse of what’s inside
  5. Consider using a coloured envelope – stand out against the usual white or brown
  6. Consider the textures – make them visually appealing and tactile
  7. Interesting designs – consider different colour combinations, perhaps a photograph or graphic
  8. Consider the finish – a shine on the lettering or graphics print face will always attract the eye
  9. Use different sized envelopes – unusually sized envelopes will always stand out
  10. Include a ‘teaser’ slogan – something that entices the recipient to discover what’s inside
