Few things in the office are as versatile and useful as the window envelope. A window envelope can save you time and money, increasing your bottom line and productivity.
How can you expect so much from such a simple thing? Let's take a look at the uses of a window envelope. You can mail out invoices, statements, promotionals, and other basic mail. Before you choose which envelope to purchase, you'll want to think about what you intend to mail with it.
When sending out invoices and statements you will want to consider a double window envelope which will have a window for the return address as well as for the addressee. This will allow you to set up a basic format where the mailing address and the return address will easily show up in the window. How does this save you money? Your other option would be to purchase envelopes with a return address printed on them and you would easily spend four times the cost of a basic window envelope. The other option for return addresses would be to make a label. Again, this would cost you more. You would need to purchase the labels and use extra printer inks. Secondly, using return address labels would cost you money in time. You would need to pay someone to create and print the labels, and also to apply the labels to the envelope.
If you are using the window envelope for a promotional mailer you might also want to consider a self-sealer. Most window envelopes are available now as self-sealers. Again, a self-sealing window envelope will save you time and money by making it easier and quicker to close the envelope.
The last thing you will want to think about before purchasing your window envelope is security. If you are using your window envelopes for statements and invoices you will want to make sure you get an envelope with a secure liner on the inside. This will prevent people from being able to see what is inside the envelope. If you are simply doing a basic mailer or standard mail, you will not need the extra protection a security window envelope will provide.
When trying to save money or streamline your business workflow, you will find that it's the smaller, simpler tasks that add up quickly. Purchasing the correct window envelope will add up to big savings in the end.
