How are Envelopes made?

How are Envelopes made?

How are your envelopes manufactured? Take a look:

  1. The paper rolls are fed into a cutting machine that will create sheets of paper into uniform sizes and stacks.
  2. Each stack of paper sheets must be cut using extra-sharp blades to form ‘Blanks’; these are the unfolded envelopes that take the form of a diamond shape. It is vital that each cut is precise not only to ensure quality, but also to minimise waste.
  3. If it is required, any custom overprinting will occur at this point. Here at All Colour, we can produce envelopes with unique designs with our exceptional range of printing methods.
  4. Once cut, a fabricating machine will further process the paper to take the form of an envelope, through applying glue and folding them into their conventional shape. At this stage additional (less adhesive) glue is applied along the seal of the envelope; as well as adding appropriate cuts for the inclusion of windows, of which the window film is added.
  5. Now the envelopes have been created, they are fed into a packaging system and then boxed into appropriate sizes.
