Envelope

HikePrint is the home of full color envelope printing. We are using 70lb offset opaque smooth white paper for all our envelopes and it can be used for any office printers such as Laser printers or Inkjet printers.

Some business owners think that printing envelope at their office cost less but overall when you print at hikeprint.com your cost would be a lot less than printing them with your office printer. Beside the time and expense for paper, ink etc. it will look much professional when you let us print for you.

There are three ways to order full color and high quality envelopes at HikePrint.

The first option is to upload your digital camera ready artwork. This is when you are a graphic artist and you have a graphic design programs such as Photoshop, Illustrator etc. or you have a graphic artist who is taking care of you graphic design needs.

If you have the artwork ready just make sure it meets our requirement:

  1. Size is right
  2. It includes bleed
  3. It is designed in CMYK mode
  4. It has 300-350 dpi resolution
  5. It is in right format: TIF, TIFF, JPG, EPS, PNG, AI, PSD, and PDF

The required bleed for envelope is 0.0625” on all four sides or 0.125” for each dimension. For example a 6x9 envelope with the full bleed should be 6.125x9.125 inches.

If you are not sure about the requirement you can download the right template from our template page and start designing your envelope or place your file into our template to make sure it has the right size and resolution.
