If you are in a field that frequently sends out mail requiring a response, you probably already know that there’s no such thing as having too many #9 envelopes around. No matter how many you print, and how carefully you manage your inventory, more always seem to be needed! Return envelopes are very versatile, and can be used for many purposes, including:
Printed reply envelopes can be customized in a variety of ways. If you already have letterhead and branded #10 envelopes, extending your brand identity on a #9 envelope will give you a complete suite of stationery. Reply envelopes will hold a standard size letter folded in thirds, making it useful for everyday correspondence.
If you plan on using printed #9 envelopes exclusively as a response tool, you may want to design the envelope in a way that makes it distinct from your other branded envelopes. That way, it will be clear to customers which envelope they need to return. This is especially important if you often send out return envelopes inside a #10 envelope. You don’t want to confuse your customers.
You can add design elements and instructions on the outside of your reply envelopes to encourage customers to respond. Whether your instructions are “Mail in this envelope to qualify,” or “Please enclose and send your donation before our fund drive closes,” the additional messaging can bring in a better response.
