Do Small Businesses Need Custom Envelopes?

April 20, 2016

Budget-minded small businesses need to market efficiently in order to maximize profits, so it makes sense if you’re uncertain about printing custom envelopes for your small business. However, if you sent a lot of direct-mail communications custom envelopes can be the difference between a campaign that fails and a campaign that boosts sales dramatically. The following details why your small business needs custom envelopes.

First impressions count

When you send a direct-mail sales letter, your envelope is the first thing your recipients will see. If it’s not compelling, it will end up in the trash and your letter will never even be read. That’s why it’s critical to print custom envelopes designed to increase your open rate and your ROI.

In addition, invoices, quotes, and estimates should be delivered in custom-printed envelopes branded with your company name and logo. You want potential customers to take you seriously, and custom envelope printing is a great way to increase your credibility and customer trust.



Premium paper

Custom envelopes are printed on premium paper stock; so your envelopes not only look great, they feel great in customers’ hands. The subliminal effects of paper texture and weight as been proven to play a role in customers’ decision-making processes: the heavier and smoother the paper, the more likely they are to associate it with quality and, therefore, to buy.
