Why PaperTyger for envelopes and mailers?

PaperTyger is a high-quality material manufactured in the USA. This product is durable, and it is certified by Digital Presses, Wide Format, Ink Jet and HP Indigo. 


Some benefits of using PaperTyger for envelopes and mailers are:

  • It can produce vivid images for graphics;
  • Envelopes or insertable mailers will be protected against tears and water;
  • Offers exceptional endurance;
  • PaperTyger is 60% lighter and 65% thinner vs. clay mail board envelopes. Therefore, more packages require less space and 600% less weight on trucks saving gas and labor cost during transportation;
  • Minimizes manual work due to it already being laminated;
  • Prints like real paper, with no special ink or printing processes because it IS REAL paper on both sides.

PaperTyger as an alternative for synthetic materials?

PaperTyger products are as durable as synthetic papers but with the benefits of being REAL paper on both sides. What makes PaperTyger durable, is the inner layer of plastic film that helps it to be resistant to water, dust, tearing and grease. This is also due to its patented solvent-free laminating process, which means no manual laminating is required. This ensures the longevity and durability of the print!
