Envelope Seal Types
Gummed Envelopes There are 4 main envelope seal types including gummed, self seal, peel & seal & extra strong peel & seal provided by Power Tac.

Gummed Envelopes
Gummed envelopes are the most common sealing type. Simply moisten the adhesive layer along with the envelope & simply press to seal the envelope. Once these envelopes are stored correctly they can last a number of years.

Self Seal Envelopes
Self seal envelopes have risen in popularity because they contain a two latex strip that simply bond together once pressed. Once sealed tightly the envelope cannot be opened without causing damage or disturbance.

Peel & Seal Envelopes
Peel & Seal envelopers are one of the most secure ways to send postage. They contain a latex strip that is covered by a protective seal. Once the seal is removed & pressed it will make a secure bond without applying moisture.
