Coloured envelopes are a power move

If you want people to open something you’ve mailed them, use this simple trick.

It’s our signature move. A version of Simone Biles’ double back layout with a half twist.

It’s so simple.

Use coloured envelopes. ❤️🧡💛💚💙💜🩷🩵

What’s inside a brightly-coloured envelope will usually be something fun. An invitation to a party. A gift certificate. A promo you might actually want to keep.

Bills, invoices, legal stuff – they arrive in envelopes that are white, grey or that weird mustard colour.

Planning an event? Spend a little extra $$$ and pick a colour that matches your brand, or the event décor.

Think about the last time you received something in the mail you *wanted* to open.

We’ll guess it was hand-addressed and it didn’t look like a bill.

Colour is powerful.

We have envelope suppliers on speed-dial. Book a call if you’re planning an event and need a kick-ass invitation.
