- Filing envelopes designed for easy retrieval and storage
- Original Tension Tie, or string-and-button closure, keeps negatives away from adhesives
- X-Ray Envelopes for Filing and Mailing
- Protection from Dust and Bending
- Sturdy, Kraft Paper
- String-and-Button Tie Closure
- Thumb Tabs for Easy Removal
Safely Store Your X-rays
Designed to keep your X-rays secure and dust free, a Tension X-ray envelope is constructed with sturdy, protective Kraft paper and fully-gummed center seams. Their open-end construction allows you to easily enclose your X-ray, minimizing the risk of damaging or bending the negative.
Negative preserver envelopes, suitable for filing, are available blank or preprinted with standard medical filing copy.
- The envelope’s double thumb notch facilitates the removal and insertion of the X-ray.
- Pre-printed copy on the front provides a highly-visible location where you can capture vital patient information for quick reviews and easy retrieval.
Mailers Keep X-Rays Secure and Feature the Original Tension Tie
Tension’s X-ray envelope mailers are available in two sizes with standard copy and string-and-button closure.
- The durable Kraft paper protects the X-ray from many of the rigors of the mailstream.
- “X-RAY FILM DO NOT BEND” is printed in bold lettering on the front of the envelope, alerting the mail handler to the sensitive contents.
- Allows for third- or fourth-class postage, or first-class postage when a letter is included
- The mailer’s string-and-button tie, or Tension Tie, keeps harmful adhesives found on standard envelopes away from your X-ray negatives. The string-and-button closure was originally designed and patented by Tension Envelope in the early 1900s, and this closure device is still in use today.
What Tension Customers are Saying
Jeff Schultz , Business Services Supervisor PepsiCo
With Tension, I feel at rest knowing I can count on getting the product I need for my business. There is a great sense of relief realizing our envelopes are designed specifically for my folder inserter machine and I won’t get calls in the middle of the night because an envelope wasn’t cut or folded correctly and is causing jams.
Ryann Powell , Procurement Specialist KUBRA
I find the greatest benefits of working with Tension are the consistency of its products, and the team’s great customer service and general availability.
