Printable Area Limitations
Envelopes printed on sheet fed presses have some restrictions on the area that can be printed.

  1. Please keep 10mm clear of print along the leading edge of the envelope (please see price table to identify leading edge for each envelope type).
  2. The image must not bleed off any edge of the envelope.
  3. If the printed image crosses a part of the envelope where there is a change in thickness (i.e. the thickness of the envelope changes from 2 to 3 thicknesses of paper), there is likely to be a slight variation in the ink density at this point. This is especially so for areas of halftone. It is best if possible to keep each element of print away from changes of thickness. If you would like a sample of the envelope, please telephone 01938 552260.
