Vault Key Envelopes & Tamper Evident Key Envelopes: Streamlining the Production Process

What was the number one request from our customers in a recent survey? Reduce production time.

We have always known our customers want their orders quickly, and we’ll agree, you have always had to wait longer than any of us wanted to get your Safe Deposit Box Vault Key Envelopes & Tamper Evident Locking Key Envelopes.

Our production process has always started with large sheets of paper cut to size followed by preprinting these cut sheets with your custom imprint. After making their way through the die-cutting process, our custom designed envelope converting machinery would come on line. Making such small speciality envelopes, with heavy 14pt Cardstock, means slower machines to accurately manufacture to our exacting specifications. Snap placement, folding, and glueing are all handled on these machines.

Millions of envelopes per year have been produced for Banks and Credit Unions, all with a metal snap fastener that, in it’s current version, dates back to the 1930s! These snaps have always been reliably sourced – until 2020 and the COVID epidemic. Even with employee absences and paper delays, which for the most part went away (sadly, green paper is no longer available in the style we need), the production delays on the snaps have still not subsided. As many of you know, we often have jobs printed and waiting to be put onto our machines – and no snaps! Of course, this has only made our production times longer than ever before! E. Greene & Company chose not to sit idly by and let our customers remain frustrated by the slow service. We began research and development of replacement products. Products that would allow for the same reliability and security our customers have come to know and trust.

Enter our New Veriflex Snap-Free Envelopes! Our entire process has changed with these new envelopes and our quick turnaround is unmatched. Custom, professionally digitally imprinted envelopes are now available in as little as 1 week! No long wait, no messy stamper, and you won’t need to take a generic form to get your envelopes quickly. We’ve tested these over the last several years and they have been met with overwhelming approval!

Our Safe Deposit Box Vault Key Envelopes have been redesigned with a Reusable Latex Gum Closure. This closure is similar to the one you’d find on Drive up Teller Envelopes. It works over and over again. As always, this envelope can be custom imprinted with a Bank or Credit Union logo, address, and phone number. It’s convenience for a financial institution’s customers and also has extra space to advertise their most profitable services.

Our previous Tamper Evident Locking Key Wallets and Dual Control Locking Key Envelopes have both been replaced with a 1″ x 2¼” wide Peel & Seal Closure. These envelopes now seal the entire way across the flap versus the old snap which relied on one small point of connection. The new Peel & Seal closure is similar to the one you’ll find on millions of #10 Envelopes going through the mail on a daily basis. Tamper Evidence begins at the moment of closure and nobody will be able to open them back up without it being, well, Tamper Evident!

Auditors and Risk management teams at financial institutions large and small have approved these for use. Even the State of New York has reordered several times!

We know you’ll be very pleased with the new products. We only set out to provide an alternative, but the New Snap-Free Product line has taken off so quickly, that plans are in place to discontinue the antiquated snaps in the near future. Of course, you are welcome to order them until they are no longer available, however we encourage you to make the switch while our introductory pricing is still available.

Need just a little more convincing? We get it! Just fill out the Veriflex Sample Request form and we’ll get a pack out to you.
