We have two popular types that we use for DL printed Envelopes:

120gsm Peel & Seal

We mainly print on premium white 120gsm PEEL & SEAL envelopes for DL Plain or DL Window sizes, with the largest variety of uses including Response Services envelopes like Freepost and Business Reply.

These are presented in "Superior" branded, high-end, red & black storage boxes.

  • SHELF LIFE: up to 5 years

100gsm Self-Seal (aka "Touch & Seal")

We also have 100gsm SEAL-SEAL envelopes for both DL Plain or DL Window variants.

These are great for posting out invoices or other correspondence to your clients where their name & address details are pre-printed on the enclosing letter or document, thus you can see through the window on the envelope.

  • SHELF LIFE: up to 6 months (as glue will dry out)
  • WALLET Long-Edge Flap as standard on DL Plain and DL Window envelopes
  • SECURITY PATTERN INSIDE
  • BOXED: in 500's

We have three popular types of glued flaps on our DL Printed 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.

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 DL Plain and DL Window envelopes
  • 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.
