Basic Envelope Printing Guidelines For Beginners
This is a guest post from Lynne Saarte.
Custom envelope printing is not really hard to do. If you are a beginner in envelope printing, you really do not have to worry about making mistakes. It is very simple, especially if you know a few basic guidelines when you print envelopes. Luckily for you, this article has a list of the most important guidelines that you need to remember. So just read on, and learn the basics of envelope printing.
Always use standard envelope sizes. One very important tip for beginners in envelope printing is to always use standard envelope sizes. As you no doubt have learned, there are plenty of standard envelope types and sizes. So if you want your envelope printing to always go on without a hitch, it is best to use standard envelope templates to print your custom envelopes. By doing this, you will not need to pay for custom printing services and many printing companies should be able to accept your custom designs without trouble.
Keep images to a minimum. Now, another important guideline for beginners is to keep images to a minimum in a custom envelope layout. While it might be tempting to add a lot of creative images in a custom envelope, it is important to know that the envelope is not the star of your mail. It is just a container and a means to label the mail. So it must not be too overpowering lest it be considered as an amateur custom envelope. That is why it is important that you only use one or two eye catching images and nothing more.
Use solid colors or subtle gradients. Also, you should not be afraid to use solid colors and subtle color gradients for the overall color of your custom envelopes cards. The era of the white envelope is over, and if you want to use your custom envelopes for marketing it is crucial for them to stand out. So try to use color for your custom envelopes when possible.
Pick paper materials wisely. Another crucial thing that beginners must know about is the use of paper materials for envelope printing. There is no one material that is used for printing envelopes. The materials and quality can vary from envelope to envelope. So it is a good thing to always choose the best materials with the highest quality for your own custom envelopes. Just ask your envelope printing company what paper materials they have available and choose the one that is affordable for you.
Just follow these basic guidelines precisely in your custom envelopes and you should be able to get nice professional looking envelopes that are perfect for any purpose.
