Q: How do I measure an envelope?
A: Commercial (or Open Side) style envelopes’ measurements are always expressed as height x width. With the opening facing upward, measure vertically from the bottom to the top along the edge. This is the height. Then measure across the top from left to right. This is the width. As an example, a #10 envelope measures 4 1/8 (height) x 9 ½ (width). For an Open End (or Catalog) envelope, the measurements are expressed as width x height. For example, a 9x 12 Open End envelope would measure 9 inches across the top (or open) end, and 12 inches along the vertical side.
Q: How do I measure a window?
A: Window measurements are expressed as size, and location from the left edge and bottom. As an example, a "standard" window measures 1 1/8 x 4 1/2. The measurement from the window’s left edge to the left edge of the envelope is 7/8 inch. From the bottom of the window to the bottom edge of the envelope, the measurement is 1/2 inch. So, the size and location of a standard window would be expressed as 1 1/8 x 4 1/2, 7/8 Left, 1/2 Bottom. For a double window envelope, the measurements are taken the same way, but remember…it is critical to note not only the size of each window, but the location of each window from the left and bottom.
Q: What kind of printing art files can you accept?
A: We can accept files in all Graphics program formats. For simple print copy, a high-resolution pdf will usually suffice.
Q: How do I send my art to you?
A: Short answer…whatever is easiest for you. Many customers simply email their art to us. If the file is too large to email, you can upload it to your FTP site or to ours.
Q: Do you make environmentally-friendly envelopes?
A: Yes we do! In addition to recycled papers…from 0-100% PCW content…we can also provide SFI and FSC Certified papers, Recyclable Window Film and Wind Power Credits.
Q: What other "Green" products or services do you offer?
A: In an effort to reduce unnecessary waste, Double Envelope has designed a revolutionary packaging and shipping system that addresses waste from used cartons and pallets. Our unique packaging system eliminates the need to dispose of used cartons and pallets because they are recyclable! We pick up the empty cartons and pallets when we deliver your next order. And since these cartons are far stronger than typical envelope cartons, we can load up to 30% more envelopes on each pallet, reducing the number of shipments needed to supply your operation. And fewer shipments means a lower carbon footprint, and decreased energy consumption.
