Another school year is underway. That means new milestones, classes, teams and the desire to capture it all. Picture day is the perfect opportunity to document this special moment in time. But there’s more to it than a quick click of the camera.

The way photographers deliver snapshots impacts the overall experience. The right approach can drum up excitement and make purchasing easy. From order form to envelope, Tension helps photography companies create the perfect package.

Photo Envelopes

As a pioneer in the development of photo envelopes, Tension helped engineer many of the product features you’re familiar with today. Understanding that photo envelopes must be visually and functionally pleasing, ours feature a sturdy construction, easy viewing and options for enhancement.

Key features that set Tension photo envelopes apart:

  • Flexibility in envelope and window size:
    • Standard envelope sizes: 9×12”, 9.5×12.5”, 9×12.5”
    • Standard window sizes: 5×7”, 4×6”
  • Gentle but high-performing resealable latex glue seal secures photos without damaging them. Plus, because the seals don’t extend across the entire tab, they’re easy to open without tearing the envelope itself.
  • Options to print flexo or litho. Litho is our favorite for more detailed designs and flexo for simpler packages.
  • Roll-to-roll or sheet fed printing is available.
  • 5 color printing, using spot color for flexo or process printing for litho.
  • Enhancements like TEN Groove embossing help envelopes stand out.

School Order Forms

The right envelope is great for making the best first impression. Making a sale is another thing and that’s where an easy-to-use form is critical. This is a busy time for parents and convenience in the ordering process is essential. Tension’s forms deliver a frictionless experience, flexibility and efficiency.

Key features that set Tension forms apart:

  • Flexibility in form and pocket (envelope) sizes:
    • Form width options: 8.5” or 11”
    • Pocket sizes: 3” to 8”
  • Includes a special pocket with a perforated edge and sealable glue, converting it to an envelope and allowing users to separate it from the rest of the form and send payment in.  
  • Litho or flexo printing. We like litho because it’s more effective for printing detailed designs.

For customers specializing in individual portraits, team photos or other scholastic niche, Tension photo envelopes and forms can help you build the perfect package.
