  • 1 and 2 color printing is almost always done after conversion.
  • Envelopes printed after conversion will require a 5/16" margin around the envelope edges with no printing.
  • Full Color envelopes require printing before conversion.
  • Full color envelopes can be digitally printed after conversion.
  • Some embossing and foil envelope designs also require printing before conversion.
  • Edge to edge printing (bleeds) require printing before conversion.
  • Printing on the inside of the envelope, for example custom security tints, require printing before conversion.
  • Artwork with solid ink areas may need to converted after printing to avoid seam lines.
  • If printed before conversion, a two sided envelope only prints on one side of the flat sheet.
