Our machines can seal your envelopes with some exceptions. If you send envelopes to be sealed, be sure the flaps are up, nested on top of one another. Thick envelopes, end seal envelopes, and closed flaps cannot be machine sealed.

Advance notice is required to effectively handle and process large or specialized mailings.
