3-color flexographic #10 envelope

Flexographic Print Envelopes

Looking for ways to make your direct response rates soar? It’s no secret that using vivid colors and eye-catching images help build a good direct mail envelope. These best practices were employed here. We particularly like the way the images play against the display window. This envelope was designed for three-color flexographic print.

Save-the-date Hot Note® Envelopes

The peel-off Hot Note® on this direct mail envelope not only includes important dates, it is also artfully integrated into the rest of the envelope's graphics allowing it to stand alone or be part of the larger design. It was created on a size 10 envelope and would be suitable for a variety of print options and budgets.


One-Color Design That Shines

One-Color Reveal Envelope

Reveal Direct Mail Envelopes

A compelling, economical one-color design requires creativity and an in-depth understanding of flexographic principles. Fortunately, Tension Design Group has a long history of success in this area.

A reverse type helps the text "jump" off the page and the involvement opening device piques the reader’s curiosity as to what’s inside. The economies of design in a single color can be particularly attractive for nonprofit mailers.
