The flap closure
The flaps are triangular or straight, mechanisable (to be glued with water) or self-adhesive.

Printing: envelopes can be printed on the front and on the flap.
Embossing: to give a relief effect, the envelopes can also be embossed; this technique is often used to highlight the company logo.

The envelope has been used since the 17th century, at the time reserved for the educated elite to preserve the confidentiality of its content. It was with the appearance of the postage stamp around 1850 that the envelopes took off and were produced in large series mechanically.
