Colour saturation on Church Envelopes!
CMYK (Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and Black) are the colours used in the printing process, whereas RGB (Red, Green and Blue) are the colours used by screen displays such as your monitor or iPhone/Android.
For this reason and due to variations introduced by light and various equipment, the colours on your screen may not exactly match or have the saturation of colours of a printed product. Like all printing companies, we print in CMYK which means there can and will be a colour variation on printed material.

How are Church Offering Envelopes used?
In the UK, Church envelopes are typically used by churches or other religious institutions as a way of collecting donations or offerings from their congregation.
These envelopes are usually provided to members of the congregation on a regular basis, such as weekly or monthly, and may be distributed either during a church service or through the post.
Religious groups including evangelical churches in the UK and Ireland also use them as Tithe donation envelopes, and 'FWO' FreeWill Offerings collections.
What sort of envelopes does the Catholic Church use?
The Roman Catholic Church in Ireland especially use custom-printed versions as Priests' Monthly Stipend Collections, Shared Mass Intention Requests, Our Lady's Garden Grotto Upkeep Collection, Dead List Memorials, Special Collections, and Weekly Parish Collection envelopes, amongst other uses.

Church envelopes may vary in design and size, but they usually have a space for the donor's name and address, as well as a place to indicate the amount of the donation.
Some envelopes may also have spaces for the donor to indicate if their donation is for a specific purpose, such as to support a particular ministry or project.
What else are envelopes used for within religious organisations?
In addition to collecting donations, church envelopes may also be used to communicate important information to members of the congregation. e.g. they may include a newsletter or bulletin with updates on church activities, upcoming events, or other announcements.
Some churches, mosques or other religious organisations may also use them to provide informational resources on how to get involved within the religious community, such as volunteering opportunities, or small group meetings.

As for the content of the envelopes, this can vary depending on the specific church or religious institution. However, some common examples of content that may be included in church envelopes include:
✓A thank-you note or message from the church for the donor's generosity.
✓Information about the church's mission or values, and how the donations are being used to support these efforts.
✓Bible verses or inspirational quotes related to giving and generosity.

Church Envelopes by TradePrintingUK summarised
Overall, Church envelopes serve as an important tool for churches and other religious institutions to collect donations and communicate with their congregation.
They can help to foster a sense of community and support among members, while also providing a convenient way for individuals to contribute to the church's mission and ministry.
We have two popular types of glued flaps on our Printed Church Envelopes for religious organisations:
120gsm Peel & Seal
Our standard, Superior envelope product using premium 120gsm white bond paper, featuring a strong, single-use, pressure-sensitive gum behind a waxy paper strip, that is very easy for donors to remove to expose the glue before sealing the long-edge flap down securely.
They are great for standard DL Gift Aid donation envelopes in the UK as they securely seal in a monetary donation, whether pound notes or coins, which charities and religious groups prefer.
No need for your church-goers, parishioners, mosque-goers / Halaqa, resorting to licking the envelope (Yuck! Nobody needs to lick an envelope any more) to seal it.
They have the wallet, long-edge flap which are very easy for people to use and easy for your church or charity's Treasurer to open again.
These are presented in "Superior" branded, high-end, red & black storage boxes (see our envelope photo gallery above), oozing quality.
✓SHELF LIFE: up to 5 years
✓WALLET: Long-Edge Flap
✓BOXED: in 500's
100gsm Self-Seal (aka "Touch & Seal")
Our alternative premium envelope on 100gsm white bond paper, these use a pressure-sensitive gum applied to both flaps that you then seal down together to form the bond with each strip of gum.
These have the bonus of a security pattern, generically printed inside the envelope.
Preferred by Churches and Chapels as the Self-Seal flaps make it easy for church-goers / parishioners to insert money notes and coins into the envelopes without leaving the Peel & Seal waxy paper strip in the church pews.
✓SHELF LIFE: up to 6 months (as glue will dry out)
✓WALLET: Long-Edge Flap as standard on all sizes, C6 and DL
✓SECURITY PATTERN INSIDE
✓BOXED: in 500's
