When you choose Continental Envelope as your partner for high-volume, direct-mail envelopes, you get more than envelopes. You get the peace of mind that comes with knowing your envelopes will be exactly what you ordered, delivered when you need them – no surprises, no excuses. We’ve been doing this since 1936, and we know how to deliver the results you expect and deserve.

• As one of the largest Midwestern manufacturers of custom, direct-mail envelopes, we deliver dependable results by listening well and working with our customers and suppliers to make sure the job is done right the first time.
• Our experienced staff combines their special expertise with state-of-the-art equipment to consistently produce high-quality envelopes.

• We produce and print over 2 billion envelopes a year. And since we specialize in custom envelopes, that means no two envelope orders are the same.
• We produce all types of custom envelopes including special windows and non-standard sizes.
• We can procure specialty envelopes for you including Tyvek envelopes, expansion envelopes, bubble and foam lined envelopes and board mailers.
• Each envelope we produce is made with a focus on quality and service. Our skilled in-house pre-press and printing team will work with you to achieve outstanding results.
• We tailor our services to the unique needs of your job – providing the type of personal services you would expect from a family owned company.

Continental Envelope strives to make the best possible envelope for your inserters as well as for your customers.  We understand the requirements of inserting equipment; envelopes need to be flat, the gum on the side seams need to be as high as possible and windows are to be gummed as tightly as possible.  Your customers want an attractively printed piece and we have the know-how to do just that.

We would love to work on your next order – email us at or call us at 630-262-8080.
