Phenomenal resource



I wanted to send you a message thanking you for being AMAZING to work with. You and your team genuinely make Open Letter Marketing feel like we are part of the Sheppard Envelope family!

I’m so thrilled we are working together and navigating this paper shortage the best we both can. I hope you are having the best week and doing well.

Please thank the team for us.

Until I called Sheppard Envelope and spoke with Lincoln I was very frustrated in trying to get answers from other manufacturers regarding basic questions about business envelopes. Speaking with Lincoln [Spaulding, CEO] he answered my questions immediately and it was readily apparent the great knowledge, experience and expertise that I found by calling Sheppard Envelope. It is a rarity in business today to find people so helpful and pleasant to speak to and so knowledgeable about their industry and products. Anyone looking for the best experience will find it when calling Sheppard Envelope.

Dear Terra,
My company recently purchased 2,500 of your PaperTyger RFID® credit card sleeves. These were custom printed with our logo and promotional info (which look terrific, by the way).

So, last week, as I was crossing the Canadian border into the United States at a high security check point, I had an excellent opportunity to make my own test to see whether your sleeves would work as advertised, by passing my combination enhanced Drivers License and Nexus card over the card scanner while it was inside the Identity TheftGuard sleeve.

I am delighted to report that the reader detected no information whatsoever. Your RFID blocking sleeve worked perfectly, exactly as advertised. Congratulations on producing a terrific product!


Nita Hollick, Pres.

P.S. The Canada-US border crossings are extremely strict, so that this test was probably as severe a test that can be found anywhere.


I bought a set, primarily to just protect the mag strips, the rfid blocking was just an added benefit. The cards arrived quicker than expected. My previous experience with rfid blockers wasn’t good, they left silvery crap all over my cards.

That’s not the case with these cards. They are exceptionally good quality! So good, in fact, that I have already ordered another set. If you’re looking to buy, look no further, these are the cards for you!

Dave (purchased RFID-blocking sleeves through CARMick Products, a Sheppard Envelope Dealer)


Hi Linc – Wounded Frog Ltd is a relatively new customer of Sheppard Envelope Manufacturing.  We placed an order for the [RFID-blocking] credit card sleeves for the Houston office of the Girl Scouts of America, San Jacinto Council.  They went over so well that we decided to order the product for our “self promotion”.  I did a presentation for my networking group last Wednesday and, WOW!!!, what a hit.  I WAS A ROCK STAR!!!

Based on your recommendation, I packaged five sleeves together and placed them at each members’ place setting.  I proceeded to explain how the “high tech” thieves were able to scan credit card information right out of the wallets and purses of my fellow attendees.  I used your product information … that included all the “techno talk” about the product.  Of course, I had to do this presentation in 7 minutes.  There were 60 place settings in the room and all but three packets were taken!! … AND, yesterday I got a call from one of the attendees who owns a technology information company who wants to order your product!!!

This is what happens when a distributor endorses a product by putting his/her name on the product.  I expect to get more orders down the line.

WOW- your company is GREAT
The proof is perfect.

I’ll do more than tell my friends, I’ll post my experience and the positive feedback that I have already received from my customers as well as that received when I called the 2 auto service companies that were included in the samples that Sheppard Envelope sent to me on the iATN ( which is the International Automotive Technicians Forum, a highly respected and frequently visited internet resource not only for technicians seeking to solve problems but for shop owners with management and marketing questions & issues.

I’ll send copies of my postings and replies that my posting receives to you and you can pass it on to the owners or Cust. Service Reps.

Thank you again.

Good afternoon Linc/Terra,

I wanted to let you know that we received the order for our bind in envelopes today (PO 928595 Miller School).

I realize a back-ordered item is not always something that you can control and would like to thank you so much for going above and beyond in producing these envelopes in such a short turn time.

Thanks again and have a great rest of your day,

I owe you a huge thank you that I owed you last week for saving my client’s bacon for getting some temporary envelopes out here for them to use when the new ownership of the property took over and they couldn’t use the old ones. I called at the very last minute and you guys pulled through as I had to have boxed envelopes the next day.

I just wanted to say thank you very much. I really appreciate your service on that and taking extra special care. Hopefully we’ll be getting some orders for some more envelopes back to you soon. I certainly have you at the top of my list when products like that come in.

Thanks a lot and hope you have a good day.

Sheppard Envelope has consistently performed as an exceptional vendor. Their quality and attention to detail is impeccable. Having established a business partnership with Sheppard Envelope ensures that Keno Graphics can satisfy with confidence the specialty envelope conversions requested by our clients. We were very impressed with the quick turnaround time and customer service of our most recent project.

Thanks for a job well done!

Hello everyone,
We received the [6-3/8″ x 8-1/2″ booklet] envelopes this afternoon and are thrilled with them.  Thank you all so much for the detail you put into this project.  I have been on press with our die-cutter for most of the day for the invite. Once it is all complete I will send you the whole package.

It’s been a pleasure to work with you all again. Promise to call you again with future projects especially for this client.  They are going to be so happy with the outcome!

All the very best,

Karen Collett

We’d love to do more, and it’s always possible we can do more.

I want to offer a great big shout-out Sheppard Envelope, and especially to Terra Gilbert for helping me track down an order we placed back in July 2015. I needed to repeat that order in a rush, not ever dreaming they would even be able to track it back for me.

Not only did Terra track it down, and enter a repeat order, she moved me up in the production line a little bit to save my skin!!
Thank you so much Terra!!!!

Terra and the entire team at Sheppard pulled together to make a very difficult job happen for me.  I had a very specific envelope size and paper that I needed and must have talked to a dozen converters around the country.  Sheppard was the ONLY company that was even capable of doing the job and fulfilled it with such great communication and service that I wouldn’t even consider someone else next time.  Thank you Sheppard!



As part of a large, high-end admissions project for a prominent local prep school, we were responsible for producing 5,000 9.5 x 12.5″ booklet envelopes on 100# Finch Fine Text. The design involved 100% percent coverage over the entire surface of the envelope; the solid was supported by a healthy bump screen, and the sheet was also varnished.

When the flat sheets were initially converted by another company, the result was completely unsatisfactory: dabs of adhesive and debris were scattered on the face of the envelope on over 95% of the job, variation in finishing resulted in non-ink areas being visible near the flap, and cracking was severe. We were forced to reject the job.

We then called Sheppard Envelope, and received immediate help and response from Linc and Brook Spaulding. Brook drove out to our plant, reviewed the project, examined the rejected envelopes, and took the dimensions of the materials that were to be inserted into the finished envelope. On the phone with Kevin Karpowicz, Brook customized one of Sheppard’s standard electronic dies to accommodate the particulars of our project. Within a few hours we had a workable electronic die from Kevin.  Brook also gave us an excellent tip about running on the wire side of the sheet to help minimize cracking.

Realizing the deadline we were under because of the rejection of the initial run, Sheppard completed the conversion in three working days. The Production Manager at Sheppard Envelope, Don Blair, was helpful and informative in making everything come together.

Our customer was as thrilled as we were with the results. Finishing was consistent and clean, and cracking was held to a minimum.

Sheppard Envelope’s responsiveness, the manner in which they facilitated the project and shared their knowledge of the envelope manufacturing process, and their exceptional overall professionalism combined to help us turn a jeopardized project into a success.

Dear Mr. Spaulding:
Just a few words to let you know of our satisfaction with the way in which Sheppard Envelope service our account. We are a small Commercial Printer and on occasion we require the services of envelope converting that you offer.

Rarely do I become involved in the manufacturing process here at Graphics and Printing Inc., But I have on occasion been made aware by our office staff of their pleasure in working with you folks.

Questions are answered in plain language, price quotations are timely, and finished product always looks real good. Treating a small customer as well as you do leads me to believe that you folks are customer driven.

Keep up the great work, it will help us sell more envelope conversion jobs!! Please pass along these sentiments to your staff.

Thanking you, sincerely,

Len Tracy, President
