Relocate to Wisconsin : Where DO those Purple Envelopes come From Hansons ?

Where DO those Purple Envelopes come From Hansons ?

  We often get the question in our email after posting "purple envelope success stories" ....where DO those envelopes come from ?   We have done monthly envelopemailngs for decades and added different variations of the newsletter for different target audiences...but always in purple envelopes which are readily identified by the recipients. Sometimes as we illustrate here...when there is something of note that is extra special...we include a seal on the back to "announce the news."  

      We also include hand written notes from time to time to various people...both business referral sources as well as past and potential clients to add a personal touch to our very regular communication.

       Our PURPLE  envelope Source is The Paper Mill Store in Neenah, Wisconsin...not very far from Green Bay.....and home to paper mills.  Their site will show you every color imaginable for not only envelopePaper  Mill Store Logos but letterhead and other paper supplies.  You will be impressed with the variety and love their customer service and delivery.  

   You get an email the minute your order "arrives" in their email acknowledging it and are kept informed right thru delivery to your door of the order's progress.

   colored envelopes   Whether you are deciding to "Boost your Brand" and do regular mailings...a shout out campaign...add some sophistication to your letterhead or other printed material...The Paper Mill Store and their very knowledgable staff will assist you in finding exactly what you need to accomplish your marketing goal.  It's not just WHAT you say...it is the quality of  the "packaging" that adds the volume to your marketing message.

Morning Sally.

While I don't do mailings anymore, this is something I want to pass on to our agents.  They need to find their niche in this market.

Sally, thank you for sharing the information. My two year old grandson’s favorite color  is purple.

Thanks for sharing the source of your envelopes, Sally. I've often wondered and then would get distracted and forget to ask you. (Not that I'd be using purple, but maybe pink.)

Good morning Sally and David - your packaging is bright and unique.  When they see the envelope in the mail box they think of you.

I think it is so cool that you distinguish yourself with purple envelopes.  Perhaps if I ever start doing mailers, I could distinguish myself with orange envelopes, as they would certainly be attention getters!

Sally and David you have branded yourselves well, and the materials you use are very professional looking.

No way.  They come from the Magic Purple Kingdom.  Everyone knows about it.

Hello Sally and David, I heard about this a long time ago to use color envelopes but have never done it.  Can I reblog this next month?

Good morning Sally and David.  I always thought that the purple envelopes come from you!

Hello Sally K. & David L. Hanson, years ago, I mailed colored postcards to a neighborhood for a whole year, listed and sold six homes in that area. I don't even know why I stopped doing it. Every time I read about your purple envelopes, I get the itch to do it again but get too distracted. Great shout out to The Paper Mill Store.

I like the choice of color. It is very memorable:) 

I usually use ivory.

With the mortgage industry's many (and I mean MANY) rules and regulations and disclaimers, logos, licensing demands (and more) that we must follow to be in "compliance" these days, Sally K. & David L. Hanson ... it's taken a great deal of the personalization and personality out of our marketing.  My creative juices feel somewhat stymied, as so much of our marketing space must be accompanied by "must haves".  Your colored branding is simple, yet speaks volumes.  Marilyn and I will have to discuss how we can do something similar ... your idea is pure brilliance ...
