Paper supply issuesSupply Shortages Continue

We’ve all noticed supply shortages continue to affect us in 2022. Whether it’s your favorite cleaning product or tasty snack, it seems nothing is protected from change.

For businesses like Postalocity, the biggest thorn in our side lately is paper, and that includes envelopes. In 2021, the cost increases made our heads spin. Now, in 2022, the costs continue to rise, but we’ve entered a new tricky landscape: backorders.

One of our unique offerings is our proprietary, closed face envelope. Unfortunately, that is one of the many products that is backordered until the second quarter of 2022. We’ve always maintained a healthy supply for peaks in our regular volumes. In order to maintain until our next shipment, some of your mailings might look a little different than you’re used to.

We’ll be converting some outgoing pieces into a windowed envelope. The envelope will include a cover sheet containing the recipient and return address information to ensure correct placement in the window. You will not be charged for this additional piece of paper, nor will you be charged for the price difference of the windowed envelope.

You will know if your outgoing pieces are selected for conversion when you begin the approval process. On step one, the thumbnail image of your pieces will clearly show a windowed envelope instead of the regular Postalocity envelope you typically see.

If for some reason you feel strongly that this will affect the strength of your mail pieces, please reach out to us via phone or email and we’ll work through it together. It is our main objective to continue offering the best service to our valued clients through thick and thin. We greatly appreciate your understanding of this possibility. Our fingers are crossed this will be a very temporary supply issue.
