  • The envelopes having their opening on the shorter edge are called ‘Pocket.’

  • Pocket envelopes open on the short edge

Envelope Face

Envelopes can be plain-faced or window-faced.

  • When mails are sent on a mass scale, Window envelopes are used as they have a clear window on the front of the envelope to reveal the pre-printed name and addresses of the customers or patrons. Using these envelopes saves time and effort.
  • On Plain face envelopes the addresses need to be written by hand (this can give a personalised touch) or address labels that can be affixed, giving a professional look.

Sealing Method

There are three methods of sealing the envelopes.

  • Envelopes come with a dried gum strip on the flaps which can be moistened and pressed down to seal the envelope.
  • Envelopes also come with a gum strip on the flaps which can be pealed and pressed down to seal the envelope. This is the peal and seal variety.
  • There is a Self-sealing variety in which the flap needs to be folded and pressed to seal the envelope.
