EnvyPak (envypak.com) received another new ruling from the United States Postal Service (USPS) that provides lower automation letter rates for a specially formatted, polypropylene (poly) envelope that now doesn't require an affixed mailing label, can be sealed with glue applied by lettershops and is fully machine-insertable.

Using this specially-formatted, Automation Letter Rate (ALR) poly envelope can yield up to 52.8 percent savings in postage, savings traditionally only attainable with paper envelopes.

EnvyPak is the only clear plastic envelope that is machine insertable/sealable, and the only one that qualifies for automation letter postage.

“Our latest USPS rulings drastically lower the overall cost to mail and fulfill EnvyPak envelopes. This opens doors for marketers large and small to mail a unique, high-impact clear envelope that drives response,” said Sean Bannon, Business Development Manager for EnvyPak.

“EnvyPak clear polypropylene (poly) envelopes are now fully automatable in every aspect. Clients can print the address and barcode directly on their insert to show through the clear envelope. They can be more creative with the insert and envelope design."

The company has worked over 10 years with the Pricing and Classification Division of the USPS to develop this clear envelope that meets their automation specifications.

EnvyPak clear mailers present many creative possibilities including envelopes with single to full-color graphics designed to “interact” with the inserted contents. The envelopes can be closed either using “peel and stick” tape or by a lettershop with hot melt glue. Special coatings, and custom shapes and sizes are also available.
