Multifunctional Forms

Looking for a multi-tasker? Multifunctional forms do the trick. They are optimal for materials including billing statements, and membership and subscription renewals. Combining multiple forms into one document can result in numerous benefits, including:

  • Cost savings
  • Reduced processing time
  • Greater customer interaction

Use these forms to send combined shipping labels and invoices, or return shipping labels and packing lists.

Specialty Integrated Products and Cards

Integrated products engage readers and are ideal for promotions and direct mail. They can save time and money by streamlining multiple tasks into one document. Options include:

  • Membership cards
  • Magnets
  • Scratch-offs
  • Decals

Items are offered in several finishes including specialty laminates. These include scented laminates and “Rub & Smell” laminate options. For markets where security and protection from tampering are necessary, special adhesives may be used on integrated labels.

Integrated cards serve many functions and are available in various styles. From membership and insurance cards, to calendars and coupons, these cards make impressions while filling needs. Protect these cards with laminates. Laminates can be applied to the front, back or both sides of the card depending on thickness, finish and tone. Use custom images or stock logos. Card styles include:

  • Perforated cards
  • Laminated cards
  • Self-encapsulating cards
  • Butterfly cards
  • Fold-over cards

Direct Mail Options

Each of these is highly customizable and can be printed with graphics and colors to match the outside envelope. Tension offers the simplicity of working with one trusted source to create each piece in your direct mail campaign. 

What Tension Customers are Saying

Tension stays ahead by knowing what is going on in the industry. Our sales rep stays up-to-date on postal issues and keeps us informed. I’ve never had a vendor do that in the past. Tension also provides us with information on paper pricing. That helps us forecast our budget, not only for our envelopes but for the forms we purchase.
