Printed Envelopes in C5 size custom Royal Mail Business Reply Envelopes and C5 Freepost Envelope printing
C5 is another one of the most popular European sizes of envelope (both single colour and full colour with either window envelopes or plain (non-window) envelopes on offer) with a pocket flap (short edge) only. This is the equivalent size to folding a Letterhead in half, A5 size, or 230mm wide x 162mm deep. It is normally used to send A5 size business letters such as SAGE invoices or SAGE Statements or folded flyers or mini-brochures. It's also the ideal size for a business letter, or marketing mail-shot within the UK or overseas.
Trade Printing UK always use a premium envelope brand which gives a high-white, high-quality finish, and there are both window and plain (non-window) envelope variants available. We mainly use the shorter-life 'Self-Seal' type which are sealed by pressing together two flaps that are both pre-gummed. Bear in mind that over time (less than a year) they are prone to drying out in warmer office conditions, but are less expensive to produce and the majority of our clients prefer them due the advantage of ease of use, no manual licking involved (yuck! we all remember licking envelopes is like a bulldog chewing a wasp) and less office waste (those little white peel-off strips on a Peel & Seal envelope have to be dumped somewhere!) so they are normally used quite quickly for specific mail-outs or in a normal office environment. Our professional advice: order less at a time!
Quality Envelope Overprinting stock supplier for business
As an envelope supplier, Trade Printing UK's custom-printed envelopes are usually of a top quality between 90gsm to 100gsm (gsm = paper weight of grams per square metre) although our 100gsm variant is our regular one that we work with for C5 business envelope printing on a daily basis normally. All our prices are based on pre-made, custom overprinted envelopes. We would advise that the larger the envelope the more important the gsm paper weight becomes; and without that additional quality they could become floppy and tear more easily in transit through Royal Mail's sorting system. Some of our competitors print on inferior 80gsm paper weight and will even charge your business more as well. Buyer beware!
Remember - NOBODY EVER COMPLAINS ABOUT QUALITY!
Creating a great looking, custom-printed envelope, preferably with your company branding and logo is the first impression your business gives to your clients, as well as greatly increasing the chance that your client will read what is inside so it should be a more important consideration that you probably originally thought. Envelopes are the container for your message, your invoices, your marketing material, your company ethos. It will also look more professional and up-market than your competitor's plain, un-printed envelopes!

Production notes for C5-size Printed Colour Envelopes
Custom-Printed Colour C5 Envelope Pocket Flaps
Trade Printing UK traditionally work with pocket-style (top opening) flaps on our C5 envelopes. The cheapest way for you to do it is to print your return address etc. at the base (within 10mm) on the front side of the C5 envelope. That's where the Royal Mail will look for it nowadays anyway so no need to print on the reverse side any longer.
All custom-printed C5 envelope descriptions are for guidance only as exact dimensions are subject to the usual tolerances that occur during the manufacturing process. In particular, flap shapes and sizes vary depending on the precise manufacturing machinery. Any custom printed envelope you order may be subject to minor design variances, however, these variances will neither affect the functionality nor the perception of quality of the custom printed, C5 colour DL envelopes.
