The world has become obsessed with beautiful packaging. Anything that’s valuable will be neatly placed inside a custom-made box, holder, or envelope. Since the beginning of time, important letters and notes have been sent via mail. The seal on the little flipside of the envelope can either indicate good or bad news.
Since envelopes hold important invitations, messages, and letters, they can tell a lot about what it holds inside by its exterior beauty. Even though the process of making one isn’t as complex, it’s still a very important part of a gift. Learn more about how envelopes are made here: http://www.madehow.com/Volume-5/Envelope.html.
Do you want to shy away from traditional envelope designs and surprise your loved one with a unique design? Then here are a few envelopes designs you can consider getting for your craft room:
1. Specifically for Gift Cards
Many of us enjoy receiving a voucher or gift card from our favorite online store or brand. These cards are typically in the shape of a bank account card and are much heavier and harder than normal paper. Gift card envelopes are specifically sized to fit a gift card inside. It’s also made from a stronger material.
It features a kind of sleeve in which the gift card slides into seamlessly. To elevate the card’s presentation there are loads of unique designs and prints available. Don’t underestimate the power of the exterior design as it can create enthusiasm and excitement upon receiving.
Give a short hint of what the receiver might expect from inside the packaging by labeling the exterior. Whether it’s for a birthday, anniversary, or just to show your thankfulness, use a special writing style to write a word. If you don’t have the best handwriting in the world, you can consult with a stationery company to provide you with customized products.
Writing the words “Thank You” in bold and glistening letters on the front cover can be a sweet gesture. Read this list of interesting ‘thank you’ poems you can include in your special envelope.
3. Glassine Envelopes
With the world becoming even more eco-friendly than ever before, people are trying to reduce the use of paper. Glassine is a see-through paper that hosts a natural appearance. To create this material a supercalendering process is used.
This means that paper pulp is broken down through beating into fibers. Once dried and compressed, it’s passed through a pressure roller. The pressure rollers buff the material resulting in a translucent paper product.
The special thing about Glassine is that it can be safely sterilized. With the current COVID-19 situation, you can never be too safe. Instead of not sending any invitations at all, you can opt for a Glassine design to ensure the health and safety of the receiver. Furthermore, these clever packaging solutions can hold retail seeds, chocolate, edibles, and even jewelry (since it’s so durable and protective)
4. Custom Designs
Want to go the extra mile? There are a lot of custom gift card envelopes that you can give for your loved ones. Instead of a traditional gift card holder, you can print a custom message on your gift card envelope.
Some packaging companies offer customizable options where you can pick the color, design, size, and print for the holder. This is the perfect solution for companies who would like to gift their employees with a voucher from a store and would like the packaging to stand out. It’s also important that the packaging remains durable to protect the gift, reward, or loyalty card inside.
Whether it’s Christmas, New Years, or for a special achievement, putting that special extra custom design on the gift card envelope will make all the difference.
When giving someone a thoughtful gift card, letter, or invitation, an envelope can create the initial anticipation for what’s inside. It also protects valuable information and ensures that the ink on the paper doesn’t get ruined or dirty. Be different when gifting your loved ones with special cards and gifts and put some thought into the enclosure.
Customized envelopes are all the rage, and you should get a few of these designs for your craft room or business.
