Choosing the right envelope for a certain occasion can sometimes be a tricky decision, there are multiple things to consider. Who are you sending to? What are you sending in in your envelope? Are you trying to grab someone’s attention?

Momentous occasions worth celebrating happen each day so you want the perfect envelope to compliment your beautifully crafted card!

Here at papermilldirect we understand the importance of choosing the right envelope so we have made things a little bit easier for you…..

New Baby

The birth of a baby is a time for joy, so it seems only fitting that you send a congratulatory message that will reflect the happy occasion. Of course, the traditional colours for new babies are blues for a boy and pinks for a girl, but that doesn’t mean that you must stick to the norm!

Bright colours are fun and joyful, so opting for a brightly coloured envelope could ensure that your card message stands out and brings a little joy to the new parents. Our range of Peel and Seal envelopes are available in a wonderful array of bight and bold colours!

As trends and personal tastes change year on year, getting the perfect birthday card right can become more difficult.

For children, bright colours are more eye-catching and attractive on their special day. Try and think what their favourite colours are, or whether they are having a birthday party, and if so, whether there is a colour theme.

With adults, matching their envelope to their personality may suit better, and can produce a beaming smile on their face, whilst letting them know that you have taken that extra care to get their card right.


Themed Event

With a themed event it is always great to have the theme running through everything around the event. Patterned envelopes are a great way to run with a theme, do you have a beach wedding coming up?
