Overprinted Envelopes – The Advantages
An overprinted envelope is a stock product which is printed with a personalised design, colour scheme, logo, message and images. They can be as simple as a standard sized envelope bearing a company logo and address, to the elaborate printed designs frequently used in mailing campaigns. In an age where personalisation plays an essential role in marketing, overprinted envelopes can give a brand a crucial advantage over one which uses plain envelopes – with an increased chance of the letter being opened on the doorstep. But what are the advantages of choosing overprinted mail over regular, plain mail?
- More eye-catching – overprinted envelopes are more likely to be opened and read than plain, or black and white envelopes.
- Overprinted envelopes can include a summarised version of the letter’s content. People know who the letter is from, creating a level of expectation and anticipation over the contents before they open their mail – leading to an increased response rate.
- We process visual images quicker than written word which means the inclusion of colour and visual imagery makes important information easier to absorb and remember.
- Core marketing and branding messages can be conveyed from the envelope before the letter is even opened, strengthening your content. They are also a great way to grab the receiver’s attention and further compel them to open the envelope and see what is inside.
So, whilst overprinted envelopes have added design considerations, and a higher cost per unit, this is money well spent if you can achieve a greater return on investment from your direct mail campaigns.
