When to use an Announcement Envelope versus Baronial Envelope Printing?

The general difference between these two types of envelopes is the size, as well as the type of flap. The announcement size envelope will have a rectangle flap and the baronial will have a pointed flap. The size of a baronial starts at a 4 bar (5 1/8” by 3 5/8”) and the largest size is 7 ½ bar (7 ½” by 5 ½”). The announcement envelope starts at A-2 size (5 ¾” by 4 3/8”) and largest size is A-10 (9 ½” by 6”). Lastly, the baronial is die cut and formed using diagonal seams (which you see in the rear of the envelope) and an announcement envelope has just sid…

Commercial Printing Services for Business

Finding a good commercial printer for small or large business customers can seem difficult. In today’s business climate, you need a commercial printing company who can “scale” their services based on your needs.

Many business print purchasers will go to a quick copy shop like OfficeMax, Kinko’s or the UPS Store to get their printing done. This option …

Cheap Business Envelope Printing Company

Finding envelope printing companies on the internet has become harder and harder.  With the most recent economic downturn a number of printers across America have gone out business. The printing companies that remain either do not print envelopes or they only offer full color printing or they only do very large runs. For a business user of envelopes who wants to print 10,000 envelopes or less there are maybe only thirty or so print companies nationwide who specialize in short run one, two or full color printing of envelopes.

EBA is one …

Using Pre-canceled Stamps to Improve Direct Mailing Results

Many companies are not aware that there are “live” stamps that can be used with a bulk direct mailing campaign. The stamps are available as 1st class presort, 3rd class presort and non-profit. The USPS postage for these stamps is the same rate as using an imprinted mail indicia. There are a number of advantages to using a stamp versus imprinting a mail permit (indicia) for a non-profit or school fundraiser and for business marketing campaigns.

The Cart Before the Horse: Graphic Design Services

Every week we see two to three design projects which did not take into account the print and bindery production cost before the design was completed. It is important to consult with your printer about graphic design services for the project before hiring someone to do designs. A prospective client will engage a designer assuming that this person has taken into account the cost of making a catalog, letterhead, etc. Here are some real life examples.

A prospective client sent us artwork for letterhead, matching envelopes and business c…

Looking for Magazine Printing Companies

Finding good magazine printing companies for your project can be difficult. Many websites advertising print services for magazines are either brokers (reselling someone’s services) or are an overseas company.

The problem with using a broker/reseller is they have minimal control of the actual production. Printing a magazine or any other material is customized to your particular needs. This includes: size of the piece, type of paper to use for the cover and inside pages, protective coating for cover, mailing and distribution se…
