Always Seal Handmade Paper Envelopes With Double Sided Adhesive

Always Seal Handmade Paper Envelopes With Double Sided Adhesive

You know what's amazing? You can now add double sided adhesive for handmade paper envelopes. And no, you don't need to be purchasing wedding stationery to include it. Since handmade paper envelopes do not come gummed, this is a hassle free solution if you don't plan on gluing the envelopes one by one. 

Now that you read the previous blog about the difference between sealing envelopes with gummed flaps or adding a double sided adhesive. This blog is more about why you may want to consider sealing handmade paper envelopes with double sided adhesives. If you are a Wedding Stationer, the best and efficient way is to use double sided adhesive tape, especially a tape gun.

What is a double sided adhesive?

As I explained in the previous blog, double sided adhesives or double sided tapes are sticky on both sides. It's the perfect solution for sealing envelopes efficiently and beautifully! The double sided adhesive (add on) I offer in my store has the perfect bond for paper textures. You want one that isn't so strong it tears the entire envelope apart and can achieve a great "tearing experience" every single time. 

The perfect "tearing experience"

The "tearing experience" is a term I came up with in the previous blog. As a stationer, I love client feedbacks and the one thing I found was how difficult it can be to seal envelopes properly. And the one that really stuck with me is the being able to re-seal an envelope so the client or their guest(s) can hold onto it as a keepsake. Also to keep it looking almost pristine and not torn to bits. A good envelope will seal, re-seal and tear open well. Honestly, the perfect "tearing experience" is when it's both a very sophisticated and satisfying experience.

Let's put it to the test!

The following is an example using the double sided adhesive to seal, tear and re-seal the handmade paper envelope

First, remove the double sided adhesive backing (super satisfying):

Once the backing has been removed, the adhesive should look like this:

Seal the handmade paper envelope by pressing and smoothing the edges of the flap:
Tear the handmade paper envelope flap so it fully opens:
Here you can see the flap is almost perfect, without any torn edges or shreds: 
Lastly, re-seal the handmade paper envelope (look how perfect it is!): 

Easy peasy! You ought to try it out now to see for yourself. I personally love how satisfying it is to tear the backing, if you love a bit of ASMR... head to my Instagram to watch the reel (make sure you turn the sound on). 

PRO TIP FOR STATIONERS: If you are using a double sided adhesive to seal your client's envelopes, make sure you use a tape gun. It's more efficient than cutting and taping one by one!
