In this video we answer a question from Shelby in Arkansas.

Shelby says:

I want to print a floral pattern on the outside of my pochette envelopes. Can I just run them through my printer, or will they get stuck?

This is a very common question to which the answer is no, and in fact, petal fold pochettes are not really suited for printing in general.

Find out why this is so, and some alternative ways to incorporate designs or patterns on the outside of your pochette in this post and video.

Will the post office accept the pochette as is, without being placed inside another mailing envelope?

All post office jurisdictions are different - some will accept pochettes without envelopes, some will not. However, we recommend using an envelope, as the exposed flaps on pochettes have a chance of being caught up and torn during the mailing process.
