How to Find Cheap Custom Printed Church Offering Envelopes?

At we serve several churches and religious institutions- Both in Long Island where we are headquartered and around the country! A common theme amongst these institutions is a need for high quality, but affordable church offering envelopes. As non-profits, these churches use their offering envelopes to help project a positive image in their community, and the printed envelopes have a direct influence on the contributions that help sustain the church. So how do you find quality offering envelopes that won't break the bank? Here's my five tips:

  • Look for Coupons/Price Breaks at Higher Quantities: With most envelope printers, the more you order, the lower the price per envelope. As a church, it would probably be helpful to have a few extra hundred donation envelopes in storage. Plus almost all of these printers will have a coupon code available or a special deal they're running. Check their social media accounts, as well as third part coupon websites like retailmenot for codes. If you go for a higher quantity and combine it with a 10% off coupon code, you can save big!
  • Ask for Samples: Price is always important, but quality is key. You'll want to work with someone who has printed church offering envelopes before, as well as creates quality work. Most of these printers will have samples of their work available (whether it be a physical sample or a digital one) and you should be willing to share it with you.
  • Have Your Artwork Ready: Most envelope printers will be willing to create artwork for you, but it won't be cheap. Make sure that you have high resolution, quality artwork that you can easily share with the printer. If you don't already have this artwork, try to see if you can find a graphic designer (perhaps a parishioner) who would be willing to volunteer their time to help you create your envelope artwork.
  • Check for Non-Profit Discounts: Many printers may be willing to work with you on the price if you are a non-profit. Don't be afraid to call or email the printer directly to see if they offer more lenient prices for religious institutions and charities.
  • Ask for Testimonials: Don't be afraid to ask for the contact info of customers who have ordered custom church offering envelopes in the past. That way you can speak to someone directly and ask them questions about both about the quality of the envelopes as well as their experience with the printer.
