Coronavirus (COVID-19) Response

With health and safety our highest priority, we want to share important information about the coronavirus, or COVID-19, outbreak.

MONITORING: Continental Envelope’s management team is meeting regularly to determine the appropriate proactive measures to mitigate this evolving public health threat. Our recommendations are being made in accordance with guidelines from the World Health Organization (WHO), the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), and local and state public health agencies.

ZERO CONFIRMED CORONAVIRUS CASES: As of this writing, there are no reported cases of COVID-19 among our employees. However, this is a rapidly evolving situation with new high-risk areas emerging almost daily. Therefore, it is critical that everyone take personal responsibility to closely follow the recommended precautionary measures outlined below.

TRAVEL RESTRICTIONS: In order to limit exposure or risk of being unable to return home due to sudden mandatory quarantines imposed by local agencies, Continental Envelope has imposed business travel restrictions.

VISITORS: To reduce the risk of the virus being brought into our facilities, we will not allow visitors without an appointment and then only if the appointment is essential.

SAFEGUARDING OF OUR PRODUCTS: The primary components used in the manufacturing of our envelopes are sourced in the United States.  We have surveyed our suppliers and, at this time, not one of them is aware of any imminent production issues related to COVID-19.

AVOID PANIC AND RUMOR: We realize fear and anxiety can be heightened during situations like this, and we want to be sure to separate fact from rumor by relying on healthcare experts and appropriate agencies responsible for guiding us.

Now more than ever, we are grateful for the opportunity to serve you.  Continental Envelope is committed to providing you the support you may need during this time.  Thank you for your business, trust and patience.  We will continue to closely monitor the situation and react quickly.  As always, if you have any questions or need support, please contact me directly.

Not all window envelopes are the same.

The USPS has assessed a company $89,000 in additional postage for the failure of the windows on their envelopes. The 1.7 million piece job was entered into the postal stream and during processing windows began to fail for various reasons. Upon further investigation it was discovered the windows were made with inferior polypropylene rather than polystyrene. The polypropylene material is thinner, less durable, and can be prone the hazing in the window rendering the barcode difficult to scan. Make sure you ask your envelope vendors about window material.

See below images of window envelopes made with polypropylene.
