Made-to-Order Envelopes for Business or Personal

When you stop and think about it an envelope is really just a folded piece of paper. Up until 1840, all envelopes were handmade, with each envelope individually cut to the appropriate shape out of an individual rectangular sheet. In 840 George Wilson patented the method of tiling a number of envelope patterns across a large sheet, thereby reducing the overall amount of waste produced per envelope when they were cut out. In 1845 Edwin Hill and Warren de la Rue obtained a patent for a steam-driven machine that not only cut out the envelope shapes but creased and folded them as well. Today over 185 billion envelopes are produced each year. Most envelopes get printed with just a return address but many direct mail marketers have found that printing a colorful message on the outside of the envelope offers an opportunity to catch the recipients eye among the clutter of their mailbox.
