We all know that envelopes have glue on the flaps and we use moisture to seal the envelopes closed. Keeping the printed envelopes stored in a cool, dry place ensures that the moisture from humidity or damp air does not inadvertently seal those envelopes before you have had a chance to put something inside. If you are in a high humidity area or cannot find a place to store your printed envelopes that you know is dry without moisture, we suggest ordering our envelope printing using a peel n seal closure. This way the glue does not get exposed to the moisture until your ready to use them. Other reasons to keep your printed envelopes dry is to avoid them warping. A warped envelope does not feed into envelope inserters and other automated mailing equipment.
It is a good practice to only order enough printed envelopes to last three to six months. This way you can keep your printed envelopes as fresh as possible.
