Envelopments was challenged by two significant trends: growing consumer preference for electronic communications and the dominance of online companies that erode business in the brick-and-mortar shops that use Envelopments’ products and services.
Envelopments initiated its first in-house production printing in 2013. Two years later, they upgraded to a Xerox® Color 1000i Press the only digital press that prints with gold and metallic dry inks.
- Printing services give Envelopments an additional revenue stream, and it is currently the company’s fastest growing business segment.
- In-house printing services make Envelopments a one-stop shop for paper, printing and assembly, eliminating the need for designers and retail shops to source printers capable of working with sometimes-challenging paper stocks.
- The new press helps Envelopments differentiate its services with an economical, fast-turn option for metallic inks, which are popular in wedding and other invitations.
- Automating key steps in its production and color management processes saves Envelopments time and money, improving their competitiveness and bottom line.
