Elite Envelope and Graphics is the only converter and manufacturer of envelopes in greater Boston. Since 2003 we have been serving hundreds of businesses throughout the region providing plain, printed and converted envelopes of all types.
We are a closely managed, hands-on company where ownership takes a direct role in the daily running of the company including dealing with customers on specific orders. Our 80 years (!) combined experience among the three main partners in envelope making and printing is a resource our customers count on for advice and suggestions.
How we are different (and better!)
- In most envelope companies, Adjustor/Mechanics are usually spread over several machines. At Elite, each of our Adjustors handles only one machine which means a greater attention to detail and quality We also employ the finest and most experienced Adjustors around like Ronny Blood (picture below).
- Additionally, most envelope companies will have operators who are in charge of taking the envelopes off the folding machine as they are made. This is their only job. At Elite, we have no operators. Our Adjustors are not only setting up the jobs but are monitoring each box as it comes off. This is why we have very few quality problems on any jobs we convert.
- Because of the close scrutiny we provide for each job, we can do things like converting envelopes containing variable data which many other converters will not do.
- We still employ hand-cutting of paper for greater flexibility and accuracy. We have a programmable paper cutter for the larger jobs but many of our jobs are still hand cut by our “Cutter Emeritus” Louis Sousa (picture above) who has been in the envelope business for over forty five years and still going strong.
All this means that for the tough jobs; where accuracy and a high level of quality is required, Elite is your wisest choice.
