Printed with full coverage before being made into envelopes, is exactly what 'printed then made' means. The is an expensive process, so short runs are cost prohibitive. But, 'printed then made' envelopes are incredible effective.
Adding your branding to envelopes lets you raise your profile and increase the interest of anyone who sees the letter, especially the addressee. Including a return address also gives you a way of keeping track when the letter doesn't actually make it to that person.
By printing the envelopes while they're still single sheets of paper before they're made up, you can create a design that covers any part of the finished envelope, and you can even design an envelope that isn't a standard size or shape.
The only disadvantage is that the cost of producing smaller quantities may be prohibitive, so this option works best if you are looking to order larger quantities.
