We wanted to make some fun envelopes that pop! Using Astrobrights Paper text weight paper and printing only 1 color black we were able to mix in a variety of fun colors. This all starts at the design process and laying out graphics so they are spaced correctly after being glued and folded. After many mock up and test sheets we finally got the design ready for press. After printing our sheets, it was off to the envelope converter. We used ECS here in Seattle, they are awesome to work with and allowed us to come in and take some cool shots of their old equipment. To walk you through the process we have captioned the photos.
Flaps are folded over in glued areas.

After being fed through now the envelopes are fed out nicely.
Envelopes are checked for quality and pressed by hand to insured crisp folds.
Packaged and ready for mailing!
