  1. History of Envelopes and the Rise of Die Cut Envelopes

  2. An envelope is a flat paper container into which you place a document, seal it, and mail it to someone. But you already knew that, didn’t you? It’s like the cheapest item at the office supply store. It’s something we all take for granted, as nowadays it’s limited to office use only. If you needed to mail something private, such as a credit card or social security number, you’d need an envelope. It’s also convenient to use one with a window, so you don’t have to write the address by hand. Documents were folded and sealed into themselves with wax before the invention of the paper envelope. In today’s world, die cut envelopes have gained great popularity.

  3. Envelope Around 2,000 B.C., the Chinese invented the first paper envelope. These basic protective coverings, however, were employed to transmit monetary gifts rather than messages. At the same time, affluent Japanese men used early versions to send gifts to bereaved relatives. Envelopes are simple everyday product that is usually used in offices to post mail, documents, or greeting cards. While the art of writing letters as a method of communication has taken a back seat in most people’s lives in favor of texts and emails, in the business world, envelopes remain a crucial office fixture. Although envelopes are a typical occurrence with which we are all familiar, the various varieties and sizes might be confusing to many people. The most popular and easy to use envelopes today are die cut envelopes.

  4. Die Cut Envelopes A die is a thin, razor-sharp steel blade that has been fashioned into a certain shape or pattern in the printing industry. As a result, Die-Cutting refers to the act of cutting paper, cardboard, labelstock, or other substrates into various forms with a sharp die. This process gives rise to a product referred to as die cut envelopes. It wasn’t until the 1800s that mass production of goods of comparable size and shape became popular, and the name “die” was coined to indicate that it was “made by machines.” Die, here, refers to the solid body involved in making a particular shape, whereas die cutting refers to the casting and cutting of shapes. We recommend using paper or cardstock with a weight of up to 310 GSM for “die cut envelopes,” depending on how sharp or deep your dies are. This cardstock is fairly thick, but anything up to that weight should be easily cut with your favorite dies.
