Embossed indicia can help differentiate your envelope, but did you know it can also help give your mailing an economic advantage?  A spot embossed indicia application is less expensive than a traditional live stamp, with the opportunity to bump interest and engagement from your mail recipients. A spot embossed envelope can promote your brand, a new promotion or mail campaign with exceptional value.  

Some Like it Hot

Looking to drive response rates? Research shows that the eye is naturally attracted to four areas or "hot spots" on an envelope. Using these hot spots can improve your direct mail impact and deliver the results you want in your next campaign. When hot spots are used in combination with an embossed indicia in the upper right portion of the envelope face, hot spot appeal improves even more.

VIP Treatment

Readers often gauge a mailing’s importance by postage type, judging how important the sender thinks the reader is to them. Using an embossed indicia can be a great way to communicate that your mail piece is important and encourage mail recipients to open your envelope and read your message.  Use in combination with eye-stopping graphics, a unique window opening, or involvement device on a 6x9 envelope to help amplify your message or cause.
