Simple Ways to Save Money on Printed Business Envelopes
As commonplace as Email has become in the workplace, printed envelopes are still used by just about every business. That is probably why I am frequently asked about ways to save money when buying printed business envelopes.
Same Size and Ink Color? Good. Also Same Copy? Better.
First, when same-size envelopes - that also have the same ink color - are ordered together, you save some money. For example, if you order your #10 regular envelopes with your #10 window envelopes, and they have the same ink color, they can be run in the same batch on the printing press…which costs less than two separate runs. And if the printed copy is the same on both envelopes, figure on even more savings.
If Possible, Use Standard Ink Colors.
Using a standard ink color instead of a special PMS color is another way you can save money on printed business envelopes. The reason is two-fold…the ink won't have to be mixed or special ordered and the press won't incur downtime to prep for the new ink color.
Avoid Custom Sizes.
Always try to use standard size envelopes instead of custom size envelopes to save big dollars. For example, a standard window envelope will cost a fraction of what a custom window envelope will cost. Using a standard window envelope not only translates to bigger savings, it also means quicker delivery. Plus, you can order as few as 1,000 if needed.
