When should I use C56 Envelopes?

C5/6 size envelopes can be used for a number of purposes due to their standard size. For those that often send transactional emails to customers including invoices or contracts, this size is a safe option, especially when adding an address window. C5/6 envelopes also offer ample space to add an original design while simultaneously remaining a compact envelope, making it an ideal alternative for those wishing to make an impact on a limited budget.

By adding your company name and logo on the envelope or going all out with a full surface design, you can be sure to differentiate yourself from all the other direct mailing campaigns and reach your targets straight at their homes. C56 envelopes can also be used to carry promotional content by nudging the recipients into giving attention to what is inside; this is ever more important at an age where attention has become a rare commodity.

Envelopes of format C5/6 are available at Helloprint, but picking a size is not all. It is essential to also choose the right type of envelope to best suit your needs. Whether you want a plain envelope, a coloured envelope, a monster envelope or a boardback envelope, rest assured that you will find what you are looking for. You then just have to send us your design and we will take care of the rest, at the best price and most efficient turnaround.

If you are looking for a versatile and cost-efficient envelope to complement your direct mail campaigns or to send professional looking transactional mails, look no more; C5/6 is your go-to.

Printing resolution for C56 Envelopes

When printing an image of C56 size you need to make sure you set it up on the right resolution. The resolution to use for an C5/6 image is 229 x 114 mm at 300 ppi (pixels per inch). Make sure you also include bleed to avoid receiving your products with a white border around them. A 3 mm bleed on all sides of your design is sufficient. InDesign includes a tool which you can use to easily add bleed, in Photoshop you would have to add it manually. Are you not sure if you included bleed the right way?

This company is absolutely amazing!!! After dealing with all the UK printers as I am a graphic designer, HelloPrint impresses me again and again. Nothing is too much trouble, they really go above and beyond for all their customers from checking files, proofing and helping answer all my questions when needed. All my customers are super happy with their print. If I could give this company a 10/5 stars I sure would as they deserve it. Thanks to Ben & the team for being amazing as always.

Posters using Etsy downloads Miriam Baguley 1.08.2020

I ordered three custom sized posters for a birthday present using downloads from Etsy. They arrived promptly and are perfectly sized and of a very high quality (much better than I was expecting). They look amazing and I will use this service again and would highly recommend to others. Thanks!
