Art Meets the Science of Direct Mail

Direct mail is an art and a science. The science tells us that physical media, like direct mail, leaves a deeper footprint in the brain and produces more brain responses connected with internal feelings than a non-physical piece. The art reveals that direct marketers must select an attractive envelope to match their direct mail campaign, get the envelope opened and boost response rates. 

Art meets science with a Tension TEN Groove envelope – the recipient’s tactile experience is heightened with the envelope’s noticeable embossing and elegant feel.

Custom, Refine Embossed Envelopes

The refined look of a Tension TEN Groove envelope is immediately noticeable in the recipient’s mailbox. Its distinctive appearance sets your envelope apart from the other envelopes, bills or offers in the mailbox. Overall grooved embossing immediately distinguishes an envelope with its different look.  

Once removed and handled by a direct mail recipient, a TEN Groove envelope elicits a tactile response – the grooved texture appeals to the sense of touch and stimulates further attention to the envelope. Excite the brain with the TEN Groove’s unique feel.

The envelope’s quality is immediately apparent – the vertically-grooved embossing gives the look, feel and elegance of more expensive papers. Direct mail best practices tell us that it is important to match the quality of your offer with a quality-looking outer envelope. The TEN Groove makes it easy.
