THINGS TO KNOW WHEN PRINTING ON FINISHED ENVELOPES

We always print on finished envelope. This allows us to offer the lowest prices but does have some limitation when printing in full color. These are listed below:

1. Color Matching: It is very hard or sometimes impossible to match colors. For matching colors we need to be able to print a color control bar on the printed piece and then it is scanned by a spectrophotometer which checks for the color density and automatically controls the inking system on the press. Now since we are printing on a finished envelope, we do not have any space to print the color bar, and hence the ink adjustment has to be eye balled by our press operators. Now our press operators are good and usually can do a fantastic job, but due to this limitation we cannot guarantee color match with other printed stationary product like company letterheads, business cards or even previously printed samples.

2. Printing to the Edge of the Envelope or Full Bleed: Since we are printing on finished envelope, there is a margin all around which cannot be printed, very similar to your home printer. To be able to print full bleed we have to print on bigger sheets of paper and then cut down to the size.

3. Avoid Heavy Ink Coverage on the Seams: If you inspect any envelope closely you will notice that at various position of the envelopes there are multiple layers of paper. For e.g. on the seams there are 3 layers of paper and then it becomes 2 layers. Now due to this varying thickness, the press cannot lay down the ink evenly, and hence the place where there are 3 layers will be more darker then then the place where there are 2 and hence the discoloration. So try to avoid heavy ink coverage on the seams.

If your envelope needs color accuracy then please request for a custom quote or give us a call and explain us what you are looking for.
