Anyone who’s ever designed or printed envelopes before knows that there are a lot of factors to consider. What are all of the postal requirements? (Yes, they can get complicated.) Will the envelopes print well on your equipment? Will they catch the eye of the recipient? Does your insert fit into the envelope?
Mohawk has all the information, tools and products you need for any project, and it’s all available on MohawkConnects.com.
Mohawk’s many envelope tutorials give you some helpful hints to consider before you begin your project. We suggest you read Designing for envelopes, USPS guidelines, How to measure an envelope, Anatomy of an envelope, and, finally, Printing on envelopes, to learn the basics of designing and printing envelopes.
Mohawk offers detailed specifications for all standard envelope styles, from Announcements and Baronials, to Insertables and Squares. Choose your style and you can quickly see the flap type, available sizes, enclosure and insert sizes, and if you’re ready, from there you can shop by paper grade, surface, texture and color.
Mohawk also makes it easy to set up custom envelope files with downloadable PDF dielines to get you started. Dielines are available for every envelope style, as well as templates for envelope construction, and postal clear zones.
