Envelope WOW with impact! Bleed your full artwork while printing directly over flaps and seams.

What was previously impossible is now available with the addition of our digital envelope printer. This will allow designers to fully expand their creative content to the entire envelope surface. This would include both sides of the envelope and completely print over the back flap and any side or diagonal seams with perfect image alignment!

While we’re printing one or both sides of your envelope in black or four-color process, we can also print any variable copy in black or four-color process. Whether it’s an address block, a teaser, variable logos or maps, sequence numbers, all of that variable content is printed at the same time as the envelope itself.

Designs that call for light screens or gradated images when imprinted on a Jet press or small lithographic press can be problematic.   Printing over where the seams on the backside of the envelope are located, could result with an unsightly seam line on the faceside. This was caused by the flat surface of the printing blanket being squeezed by the different thicknesses of the envelope around the seams that hold it together. On our digital envelope printer, there won’t be any seam lines at all since it images straight down onto the stock with no causality of the different thicknesses beneath the surface.

Our digital printer can run mill stocked envelopes ranging in size from a 3 x 4.25 up to a 9.5 x 17. This allows us to bleed our images up to 8.5” north and south while bleeding the full width west to east. Chromagraphics can handle quick turnarounds for you as well! We can print 7,500 #10 envelopes an hour or 3,500 9 x 12 envelopes an hour.
