We have several options for envelopes, which will be presented to after the personalization process, and after selecting your trim and material options. Below is an explanation of each.
Blank envelopes (free)
This is the default for every card order. You will receive blank envelopes for all your cards. This is pre-selected and there is no additional fee for this option.
Printed return address
Selecting this option will reveal a text field in which you will enter your return address. We'll print this centered on the back flap of all your envelopes. This option is an additional 30¢ per envelope.
Printed return and recipient address (free)
Selecting this option will also prompt you to enter your desired return address, plus the option of using a blank return address in case you'd like apply your own labels. After hitting "next" you'll be brought to a page where you may upload your addresses. (See "Uploading addresses" for more information.) There is no additional fee for this option. We realize it can take some time to gather addresses, so we offer this option for free as a way of rewarding you for your hard work. Note that recipients can only be added to one design per order.
Printed return and recipient address, stamped and mailed
The previous options select envelopes that will be packed and shipped to you with your cards and other items. This option prompts you for your return address and recipient address as well, but rather than send everything to you, we'll print addresses, stuff, stamp, and mail each card to its recipient. In addition, on the back of the card will be printed "Especially for" and the recipient's name, for a slightly more personalized touch. This service is 30¢ per card plus the actual cost of the stamp. ($0.50 for Domestic, 1.15 for International as of 1/21/18) Note that recipients can only be added to one design per order.
Envelopes are included by default, but if you'd like to order some extras just in case, it's easy to do so.
