If you are a small business who sends out a lot of checks or invoices, then window envelopes are a great option for you to save time.  By allowing the check or invoice address to show through the window, you eliminate the need to print the address on the outside of the envelope.

Stamps.com offers a great way to use these time-savers by offering a heat resistant window envelope that won’t melt in a laser or inkjet printer.  This special envelope, which comes in single window or double window options, allows you to print postage directly onto the window envelope.

Special features of Stamps.com window envelopes include:
• Special heat-resistant window does not melt when printing postage using a laser printer
• The tinted pattern inside discourages reading sensitive information through the envelope
• Laser and inkjet printer compatible

How to Print Postage on Window Envelopes:
To print postage directly onto your envelope select the “Envelope – #10” option when using the “Envelopes” interface in the Stamps.com software. This option will be available in the “Printing On” drop-down menu when the mailpiece is set to letters.

Before you print, make sure you uncheck the boxes next to the “Return” and “Delivery Address” fields. so that those fields do not print. For single window envelopes, uncheck the “Delivery Address” box. For double window envelopes, uncheck the “Delivery Address” and “Return Address” boxes.

Stamps.com Store Introduces Laser Printer Compatible Window Envelopes
Window envelopes are an easy, label-free way to communicate with your customers, but without the right envelopes they can be problematic when used with laser printers. The heat from laser printers can melt the plastic in the window envelopes, which can severely damage your printer. window-envelopes2

However, there’s a solution to this problem.  The  Stamps.com Store has introduced gummed closure window envelopes with a specially formulated window designed to resist the heat of laser printers. Just insert the heat resistant envelope into your printer like normal, choose what address and postage you want printed on the envelope and hit print. Once the envelope is printed, all you’ll need to do is stuff it and send it.

Speed Up Your Monthly Invoice Process
These new envelopes are a huge time saver. Instead of manually adding the return address (via ink stamp or labels) and pasting stamps to each window envelope, you can print all of that information in one pass on your laser printer. Also, you won’t need to match letters to the delivery address on the envelopes any longer either as the address from your invoice will show through the lower-left single window.

In addition to speeding up office tasks, these new Stamps.com window envelopes add security and durability to your mailings. The envelopes have a blue security tint for extra privacy, the 24-pound white woven paper and a gummed closure that seals tightly.

Laser Printer Window Envelopes are $21.99 for a box of 500 envelopes.  Order some today!
