Self Mailers: An Alternative to Your Number 10 Envelopes

Easy to Print and Economical, Self Mailers can Provide Visibility and Interactivity

Not all mailings need a number 10 envelope. Self mailers from Tension provide eye-catching and effective alternatives that leave plenty of space for creativity. Any piece of mail that does not require an envelope can be considered a self mailer. Designed so that the address information and postage can be printed or affixed onto the mailpiece, self mailers offer a cost-effective method of direct mail marketing, with most pieces distributed to consumer households. 

Tension's self mailer sizes can range from standard to custom direct mailer sizes. Self mailer options include: 

  • Snap Pack Mailer: Perforated on the sides and one long edge, these eye-catching mailpieces deliver your message in an official and interactive carrier. The perforation provides an added layer of security for your important message. 
  • Postcards Self Mailer: Sometimes considered flats, this popular format can be printed and then rolled and delivered to you for you to personalize, cut and mail. 
  • Bifold Mailers and Trifold Mailers: Folded mailers provide more room to deliver your message than a traditional postcard.
