The Many Uses of Coin Envelopes

Envelopes are used for so many things on a daily basis, from sending mail, to storing important personal and business documents.  But does anyone ever pay attention to the envelopes themselves?  Most envelopes are pretty standard such as plain white envelopes, manila envelopes, and the occasional window envelope.  These envelopes are typically used for basic and routine purposes. Coin envelopes are used for more specific and interesting things such as collecting tips, or storing jewelry and other valuables.  Unlike most common envelopes, coin envelopes often contain something a little more specialized.  Coin envelopes can also be customized with interesting colors and designs to make them fit your individual needs.  Not that you can’t do this with other types of envelopes, but what’s the fun in sending the payment for a bill in a colorfully designed envelope?

This blog discusses some common uses for coin envelopes as well as reasons to have them printed with a custom design.
