Adopting iPhone and iPad Styles in Your Business Envelopes

By Janice Jenkins Subscribe to RSS | January 17th 2012 | Views:

Since the digital designs used in the iPhone and the iPad are pretty sleek and popular, it will be good to actually match them to also get the same reactions from your printed materials. Here in this guide, I will teach you how to adopt those same popular design styles to your color envelopes.

Do not worry! It is actually very easy to do this for your business envelopes. In this article, we will go through several simple steps that you can use whilst designing these full color custom envelopes. If you can use all of these for your envelope printing, you will get the same sleek (but still original) look that makes the designs of those iPhones great and popular.

1. Change the fonts to APPLE fonts

The main content feature of envelope printing designs is the text printed in its front area where the names and addresses are printed out. To change your full color custom envelopes to a more iPhone like design style, you will need to change the fonts of these text content to something better.

Of course, you will want to apply APPLE or MAC type fonts that are close to the ones used on those mobile devices. Typically there are free versions easily available over the Internet. So search for those similar type fonts and apply them to all your text in your full color envelopes.

2. Add easy to understand icons and creative logos

If you look at the typical business envelopes in circulation today, you should discover that most of them are devoid of simple graphics. This is not recommended if you want your designs to match the impressive features of iPhones and iPads.

Instead, you should add in more easy to understand and bright colored icons to help people understand what your envelopes contain inside. They will appreciate the gesture all the more. Increasing the chance of course that your envelopes will get kept and its contents read.

3. Add a subtle dynamic background in the envelope

If you want your envelopes to match the awesome appearance of those mobile devices, you should try and avoid blank white backgrounds for your color envelopes. Follow their example though and use more subtle dynamic backgrounds in your designs.

Add seamless color gradients to some of your backgrounds, or just add mini texture designs to those base areas. With an additional texture and design support you should get that more interesting and dynamic background that does not look too constructed and corny.

4. Simulate glow, shadow and emboss effects in all elements

Of course, you can also just use some of the basic sleek design techniques that most iPhones and iPads use for their graphics and text elements. These basic elements include simulating flow elements, shadow elements and other more embossed elements. All these features can be applied to your designs via Adobe Photoshop. So if you do have access to that software, try to apply these features to your printing.

5. Use a glossy type paper texture in printing

Lastly, you should inquire about glossy type paper in your envelope printing company. While most professional envelope printing services should have lots of paper options, only some of them might have the thicker glossier versions that make envelopes extra impressive and special.

So ask first and see if you can get the sleekest and most shiny material that you can for envelope printing. This should hem in the sleek iPhone style by making it appear that your envelopes have glossy and impressive cover screens as well.

So that is how you can adopt your designs and use a more iPhone or iPad style in your envelope printing. See if you can apply these to your own designs now.
