Listed below are several different ways of packaging envelopes.

Bulk Packed Loose

  • Envelopes are packed loose in a carton.
  • Bulk packing is generally used on larger bulkier envelopes.



  • Envelopes are wrapped around the center with a paper band.
  • Envelopes can be wrapped in any specific quantity. Some common quantities per band are 10, 12, 25, 50, and 100
  • An upcharge would generally be charged for banding.
  • Banding makes envelopes easier to handle when distributing in small quantities to several areas.

Fiber Cartons

  • Most envelopes are packaged in fiber or corrugated cartons and then several of these cartons are packed in shipping carton.
  • Fiber cartons are the most common type of packaging used for envelopes and generally do not require an upcharge.
  • Fiber cartons protect envelopes from damage.
  • Envelopes are easier to store and handle.

Note: Envelopes should be stored in their protective carton until time of use so that they are protected from taking on excess moisture.
