Cenveo Offers Conformer Expansion Envelope Solution
Englewood, Colorado-based Cenveo is the first envelope licensee of Conformer Expansion Products, Great Neck, N.Y., to offer envelopes that expand to fit its contents.
"Prior to the Conformer Expansion Envelope solution, mailing bulk statements or other items measuring more than approximately 1/4" required a gusseted envelope," explained Murray Rundle, marketing manager at Cenveo's Supremex location, Toronto. "Gusseted envelopes are more costly, lack presentation appeal and do not perform as well as Conformer Expansion Envelopes. We expect customers to see significant savings."
Conformer Expansion Products has granted Cenveo a license to manufacture, use and sell envelope products with its trademarked name exclusively in Canada, and on a non-exclusive basis in the United States. Supremex will be the first Cenveo location to manufacture the envelopes, but the license authorizes every Cenveo operation to do so.
"Conformer Expansion Envelopes fill a void in the marketplace, specifically the need for an envelope that expands to fit contents of varying thickness and can run on automated insertion equipment," said Marvin Makofsky, president of Conformer Expansion Products. "Furthermore, the envelope can be used as a vehicle for marketing, advertising and promotion."
Supremex currently offers three stock expansion envelope products approved by the United States and Canadian postal services, including a 4-1/2x9-1/2" and 9-3/8x12" envelope in 28 lb. and 32 lb. white-woven respectively, and a 9-3/8x12" in 48 lb. Tru-Tec envelope that is tear- and moisture resistant. Rundle said that two additional stock sizes are in development.
