Downloading your templates

If you’re creating your own artwork for Printed Envelopes, download one of our free artwork templates and make sure you get everything set up correctly, to avoid any problems when your print hits the presses.

Each template is blank, ready for you to add your artwork and save as a PDF file to upload for print. We’ve marked out your non-printable and non-text areas too, so you can rest assured that you’ll be creating the perfect artwork for print. If your chosen format isn’t there, then use the PDF format for guidance when creating artwork.


How to use our templates?

Once you’ve downloaded the right sized template (above), ensure to supply it back as a PDF as per the instructions, and remember to delete any guide layers, as these will be printed if you don’t remove them.

To download your free artwork template, just select the envelope size you need and download your PDF template for your chosen design software programme.

All you need to know about personalisation…

With personalisation, you’ll never have to write another address by hand again! From just £5 extra, we can personalise your Printed Envelopes with names and addresses, so your print is ready for the post box as soon as it arrives. All you need to do is affix a stamp.


Creating your personalisation .csv file

If you want to add personalisation, you’ll need to supply a PDF of your artwork, showing us where you’d like personalisation and a csv. spreadsheet of names and/or addresses, with up to 500 entries.

Download your free personalisation csv file here and fill in the names and addresses you wish you personalise, in the columns provided. (Make sure to spell and capitalise your names and addresses correctly.)

Tip: You’ll need to upload a PDF showing us where you’d like your personalisation, just remember to clearly display where you’d like it to appear. You’ll need to make sure that your personaliseable text is in the correct font, point size and the colour set to CMYK values. Then simply save out the file as a PDF document and upload it with your order, and your csv. file. (Please don’t outline or embed the fonts on your PDF file). You can change and name your fields within the csv file as you wish, as long as they match your PDF.


If you want to print multiple artwork variations on the same base format (size and paper stock) then use our versions service. It costs from just £2! Just remember, you can only upload one version if you’re looking to add personalisation to more than one version. If you’d like more than one version with personalisation, please create two separate orders.


How long does it take?

Place your order before 5pm and get a standard 72 hour turnaround.


A quick note…

At the minute, you can only print single sided, and you can’t add any special finishes.

You can’t print edge to edge artwork either, so you’ll need to make sure you factor in a 5mm border from each edge.

If you want to order Printed Envelopes alongside any other print (for example, Invitations), you’ll need to order them separately – we can only add regular envelopes on to your order as we need a little more info to create your personalised print.
Just add your print to basket, then head back to find Printed Envelopes and add them separately.
