Express Shipping Envelopes FAQ

What’s unique about these envelopes?
They’re larger and designed to ship larger documents or mail that a letter-sized envelope can’t ship.

Why are paper choices so simple for these envelopes, compared to standard envelopes?
These envelopes are printed inhouse from a standard, high-quality paper stock that best suits its purpose.

What are some good uses for these envelopes?
They’re great for shipping any larger paper document to clients, customers or potential customers. They’re useful, professional and promote your brand.

Envelopes are printed on 12 Pt C-2S Gloss Coated Cover, which is a thick, glossy cardstock. They are then UV coated on the printed sides to add a protective coating and extra shine. You cannot write on products that have been UV coated.

Proofing: After you place your order and upload your artwork, our prepress team will begin inspecting your files to ensure your document size, bleed lines, margins, image resolution, and more are correct in order for the best print quality. They will email you a soft proof (PDF) for your approval prior to printing. Most proofs are sent within 1 business day of order placement; more complex art files can sometimes take longer. Soft proofing is an easy way to see what your finished product will look like and make sure the content is correct. However, soft proofing is not intended for exact color matching. Every monitor displays color differently, and on backlit screens, colors may appear lighter than the actual colors contained in your files. If color matching is critical, please give us a call at 800-227-7377 to order a hard proof.

Production Time: Production time begins after proof approval and is the time required to produce your order before it ships. It is calculated in business days, starting at the next occurrence of 9:00 AM Eastern on the 1st business day after the proof is approved. U.S. Press is closed Saturdays, Sundays and all major holidays; thus, these days are not included in the production schedule.
