Do I need a window or plain envelope?
If you will be inserting generic items into the envelopes it is better to choose plain face envelopes. For personalized items you can select window or plain envelopes , just remember inserting personalized items into plain face envelope includes matching, the envelope will have to be personalised then matched to the insert, this process is often more expensive.
How do I design my letter for the address details to show through the window of the envelope? If Perth Envelope is printing your letters we ensure the address details and barcode if applicable are correctly positioned to show through the window of the envelope.
However if your doing it yourself make sure the position of the address is correct to show through the window before you print. If you are printing an address barcode be sure to order barcode window envelopes. Please find below stock envelopes, window sizes and position.
