Envelope seals

There are three main envelope seals:

  • Gummed. Adhesive flap is moistened and stuck to back of envelope.
  • Twin gummed / press seal. Two adhesive flaps are pressed together. Sometimes press seal envelopes are reusable and can be opened and closed repeatedly.
  • Peel and seal. Protective paper covers an adhesive strip on the flap. This is peeled away to stick the flap on the back of the envelope.
