#10 Zip Strip Envelopes

Dreaming of a get-away? After receiving this direct mail piece you may be. We used one of our most popular involvement opening devices – the Zip Strip – to pull recipients into new travel offers. This one is featured on the face of the envelope, making it immediately noticed. The envelope sparks recipients’ wanderlust by using vibrant images of European destinations. This envelope was printed on a #10 business envelope using lithographic offset printing.

Sticky notes for mortgage envelopes

Custom Sticky Note Envelopes

Hot Note® repositionable notes are one of Tension Design Group’s favorites for direct mail. Hot Notes involve the recipient with the mailing and the removable sticky note serves as a portable reminder of the sender’s offer.

The house-shaped note in this mailing helps mortgage lenders target young, first-time home buyers. With customizable sizes and shapes, the Hot Note encourages creativity.

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.


Look Under the Hood

Full color reveal envelope

Custom Hot Note® Envelopes

For this car dealer mailing, Tension Design Group used two favorite direct mail features. 

First, its “advertising style,” or double side seam construction allows for full use of the envelope’s front and back for marketing purposes. We placed the address on the back of the envelope, letting the front be entirely dedicated to the promotion. Then we integrated a Hot Note® for extra punch.

The recipient of this envelope can remove the Hot Note and place the palm tree shaped tab on their computer monitor, refrigerator or even car dashboard as a reminder of a dream vacation. Sooner or later, we hope they’ll contact you to book a getaway!
