Choosing the right envelope

The envelope you design or choose for your project is just as important as the contents inside. The size of the piece, type of mailing, budget and whether automated equipment is required for content insertion will affect the type of envelope you choose. Basic knowledge of the envelope can help you reduce costs and select the most suitable envelope for the project.
