We can print on C6 to C4 on a whole range of different paper stocks,
dependent on your choice of digital or inkjet printing.
Whether you need to get envelopes printed to offer a prepaid (BRE) business reply service, or as part of a direct mail campaign, our turnaround times can be as little as 2 days for standard envelopes, depending on the quantity.
Our print to envelope technology means we can print on demand from a single envelope to 10,000 or more. Standard envelope sizes are available with windows (to enclose letters folded so that the name and address is visible) and windowless, with and without capacity. They can also be gummed or have peel and seal strips, but if choosing the latter be aware that they will require hand fulfilment, as they cannot be machine sealed.
All of our envelopes are sourced from FSC® accredited suppliers.
Colour envelope printing can give your marketing campaign a head start by piquing the interest of your audience from its first moment in your hand. From the simplicity of branding envelopes with your logo, setting a professional tone and reinforcing your corporate identity, to printing full colour promotional images to support a specific campaign. We can print 9,000 colour envelopes per hour, using 5 colours and to a print resolution of up to 1600 dpi.
For large print runs that don’t require colour printing or the polished look of laser printed envelopes, we recommend inkjet printing. With run speeds of 30,000 envelopes per hour its much faster and more cost efficient. To minimise your costs further, only print on one side of the envelope.
Choosing the right envelope size
If you find envelope sizes confusing, here’s a useful tip. Simply swap the ‘A’ letter of your finished paper size with the letter ‘C’.
C4 envelopes – fit an A4 sheet. This is the perfect size if you don’t want to fold the enclosed A4 contents, but be aware that this will cost significantly more to post as it falls into the large letter tariff.
C5 envelopes – fit and A5 sheet (or A4 folded in half). C5 envelopes fall into the standard letter mailing tariff.
C6 envelopes – fit an A6 postcards or an A5 sheet folded in half.
DL envelopes – for A4 letters folded into thirds.

Brilliant experience with The Mailing People and particularly Rachel. I had a response to my quote within an hour of submitting it. The project was completed very quickly and efficiently. We will definitely be using The Mailing People for future campaigns.

From the first moment I started working with Rebecca , she has been a pleasure to deal with. She handles all our requests promptly and efficiently and delivers an excellent service when looking after our projects. She is the first person I turn to when looking for a quote.

I really enjoyed working with this company, very responsive, clear explanations, very good follow-up of the order. This is all the more important when you are a foreign company and you are not used to doing this type of work abroad. I will certainly use the Mailing People again for other projects!

We have been using The Mailing people via Bishops printers since 2019, they have coped well with our sometimes very tight deadlines. They have always been happy to accomodate our very particular needs when it comes to mailings. Whilst I cannot fault what they do for us, I would like to see some ideas coming through of things that may have worked for their other customers...show us some samples, we're always open to consider new ideas! 288 Group Ltd

Great service from start to finish. Job involved both print and mailing - print was high quality and mailing arrived well ahead of our deadline. Our account manager Rachel was superb, kept on top of all the details and kept us in the loop throughout - will 100% use again!
