How to print a remittance envelope for a non-profit organization, fundraiser, foundation or church

2019-05-15 Business No comment

The remittance envelope is an envelope dedicated to returning the promise by mail. All donation envelopes come with a large back cover and are available in two styles and sizes to suit your needs. The front end of the remittance envelope looks like a standard envelope, usually with the intermediate address of your organization, FIM, and sometimes a commercial reply or a “stamped” copy. Although these envelopes are very versatile, their unique flip design makes them very tricky to print. Please read the following information about the type of fundraising envelope and call your printer at any time for assistance with setting up a copy of the remittance.

Non-porous remittance from


Non-perforated or "non-perforated" remittance envelopes have a large cover that means they are enclosed on the back of the envelope. When closed, it will almost cover the back of the envelope. Since this flip cover acts to close the flip cover, it is glued at the end. The flip is so large that you can use this space to gather information or receive orders from donors and donors, and the information will be neatly enveloped in envelopes. However, care must be taken not to push the printed copy too close to the edge of the flip, especially the glued edge, as anything printed or handwritten will be torn off when the envelope is opened and the donation is removed. If you choose to put a copy there, the same is true on the back of the envelope. If the gum is hit, the copy will be removed from the envelope when opened. That said you still have enough space to collect information such as the name of the donor, accept orders for gifts that they are eligible to donate, and so on. Non-perforated remittance envelopes are more economical, simpler to use than perforated envelopes, and are suitable for most fundraising purposes. They come in a variety of sizes, from 6 and 1/4 to #9.

Perforated remittance envelope

The perforated remittance envelopes look like their non-perforated counterparts, except that the long fins tear at the perforation lines directly above the top of the envelope to form a short flap to close the envelope. The donor can then fill out the washed flip cover with a gift, gift or subscription and place it securely in the envelope. With a flip-top with a hole, you can print more copies and bring your copy closer to the edge of the flip because there is no gum to use. If you need to collect a lot of information, or if it is important to make visible prints on the back of the envelope, it is best to punch the envelope. Perforated envelopes are available in 6 and 3/4 and #9 sizes.

Remittance envelope template

Before finalizing the print copy, you may need to ask the printer for a template about the package size and type. With standard envelopes, the measurements provide enough information, but with a remittance envelope, there are many curved edges, cones, and of course the gum lines you need to avoid. Ask the printer for tolerances for printing on these envelopes. If you put things near the edge, it may be cut off.

Final description

Non-profit remittance envelopes are difficult to print, but with the help of your printer and prepress department, you're sure to get a high-quality product that better meets your fundraising goals than a standard envelope. Remember, when ordering an envelope to send your donation request, be sure to order the next size from your donation envelope size.
