WHERE DO I GET FREEPOST ARTWORK FROM?
For first time orders (with a new licence number) the proof must be sent to Royal Mail for sign-off and Approval.
To speed up the process and, more importantly, make things easier for you, we'll send the artwork to the Royal Mail on your behalf to get "Copy Approval". Once approved, we will then send it to production to be printed.

What type of flap can I use? Self-Seal or Peel & Seal?
From an over-printing perspective, we normally produce your printed Freepost envelopes via our now standard, premium 120gsm peel & seal product ranges (the highest quality in the UK print industry for this sector!) for quantities ranging from 250 - 10,000.
You also have the option to use our 100gsm self-seal envelope product for C6, DL & C5 sizes (C4 are 120gsm peel & seal only). We have two popular types of glued flaps on our Printed Freepost Envelopes:
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 you remove to expose the glue before sealing the flap down securely.
They aren't compatible with automatic insertion [Fulfilment] machines, but are fantastic for long-term storage and portraying a high-end luxury image for your company.
An easy way for your customer to send back correspondence as a Freepost envelope, without resorting to licking the envelope (yuck! Nobody needs to lick an envelope any more) to seal it.
These are presented in "Superior" branded, high-end, red & black storage boxes, oozing quality.
✓SHELF LIFE: up to 5 years
✓WALLET: Long-Edge Flap as standard on all sizes DL, C5, and C4
✓BOXED: in 500's (C4 in 250'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. Note that our small C6 Envelopes are only available in C6 size as Plain (NON-window). These are compatible with our Freepost Envelopes.
These have the bonus of a security pattern, generically printed inside the envelope.
✓SHELF LIFE: up to 6 months (as glue will dry out naturally)
✓WALLET: Long-Edge Flap as standard on all sizes, C6, DL and C5 only
