Envelopes - Recycled Paper
Embrace sustainability with envelopes made from recycled paper
Envelopes might travel great distances but the amount of time people actually interact with an envelope is limited to just a few minutes. Envelopes are filled, emptied and then promptly disposed of. That’s why envelopes made of recycled paper are a good choice that leave an ecoconscious impression on your customers and business partners. Featuring your mailing address and logo printed in premium quality at economical prices.
- 100% recycled paper
- Various formats
- 4 colours (CMYK) or in spot colours (Pantone)
- With self-seal or gummed flaps
Our product range features a variety of different letter papers to match our printed envelopes.
Frequently asked questions
Can I also order products that are not included in the standard product range?Yes. Flyerline Schweiz AG is capable of providing you with nearly any conceivable printed product. We have one of the most extensive, state-of-the-art pools of printing and processing equipment in Switzerland. If you don’t see the product you want in our standard range, please use the contact form to send us your request. Our Sales team will be happy to prepare an attractive, customised quote.
How quickly can Flyerline deliver?Delivery times vary depending on the specific product and print run. We always make every effort to produce and deliver your printed matter as quickly as possible. We generally need 2-5 working days, depending on the product. When you place your order, we offer a “Rush” option for most products that generally ensures you expedited production and a turnaround time of one working day. The actual time required for production and the expected shipping date can always be found in our shop, right by the configured print product.
How should I deliver my print data?Ideally, we recommend that you send us a print file with a resolution of 300 dpi in CMYK colour mode (colour profile: PSO Coated, V3) and a bleed of 3 mm. The data formats that work best are .pdfx1, .pdfx3 and .pdfx4 as well as .tiff and .jpg for picture files. For detailed information, please refer to our “Data Delivery Tips”. You will find this document and the corresponding product data sheet both in our Download Centre and by the product in question.
What does 4/0 or 4/4 mean?4/0 colour means: printed in four colours on one side (full colour)
4/4 colour means: printed in four colours on both sides (full colour)
Can I also send Office files to Flyerline?Yes. But since Office files cannot be processed for professional printing, we first have to convert them into printable files. We charge a conversion fee of CHF 25 per file and page.
What is CMYK?Cyan, magenta and yellow are the primary colours used for subtractive colour mixing. Black (K) is added because the primary colours are unable to produce a pure black. CMYK is the colour space required for printing. All masters are converted into CMYK files if they are not delivered in CMYK format.
My file is in RGB mode. Will that work too?Yes. We convert the data into CMYK. This could result in slight variations in colour, especially in the case of extremely bright colours, since we do not know what colour was originally used and RGB documents look different on every screen. If you provide us with print data in RGB mode, we recommend selecting the “Proof” option.
What is bleed?The bleed is the area of the print data that extends beyond the normal edge. Bleeds are necessary because printing machines work within a certain tolerance range and the paper can shift slightly during printing. Please create print files that have a 3 mm bleed on each edge.
What are the differences between uncoated papers; natural, offset & recycled?Uncoated means the surface of the papers is not treated with synthetic materials. Our uncoated papers differ in the following properties:
Uncoated woodfree FSC® Mix Credit:
-from chlorine-free bleached pulp
-particularly absorbent paper
-makes colors appear soft
-very high whiteness (CIE 168)
Uncoated Offset paper FSC® Mix Credit:
-made from eucalyptus pulp
-smooth, homogeneous surface
-brilliant colors and good contrasts
-very high whiteness (CIE 171)
Recycled paper FSC® Mix Credit:
-made from 100% recycled fibers
-produced with minimal environmental impact
-authentic color with less high whiteness (CIE 112)
Envelopes made of recycled paper are produced in several different formats: C4 (324 x 229 mm), C5 (229 x 162 mm) and C6 / 5 (229 x 162 mm).
Envelopes made of recycled paper – wide range of styles
Our envelopes made of recycled paper are available in either 90 g/m2 or 120 g/m2 Nautilus Classic, 100% recycled paper, FSC Recycled paper, with or without a window (on the left or right) and with a choice between gummed or self-adhesive.
The difference between self-seal and gummed flaps is that gummed flaps must be moistened to seal the envelope before mailing. The same approach is also used for stamps, for example.
The envelopes can be printed with a bleed-off on three sides.
Number of pages
Envelopes are only printed on one side. The back remains white.
Colours used for envelopes
Flyerline Schweiz AG prints using the CMYK 4-colour model (also referred to as Euroscale). Any RGB colours contained in the files will be converted to CMYK. Of course, you can also have your envelope printed in Pantone colours. Please indicate the Pantone colour number when placing your order.
Envelopes can be ordered with print runs ranging from 500 to 100,000 copies.
