Choose The Right Folding, Stuffing & Inserting Machine

Automatic Envelope Folding, Inserting & Stuffing MachinesDo you need to speed up your paper folding & envelope stuffing operations? You may want to consider upgrading to a paper folder inserter. These handy machines take a sheet of paper, fold it, insert it into an envelope and seal it shut. With so many machines out there, which one should you get? Here are a few questions you may want to ask yourself.

How many sheets of paper do you need to insert into the envelope? The machine you get will almost depend entirely on how many sheets of paper you need to insert into an envelope. The most basic machines fold and insert a single sheet of paper.

More complex machines can fold and insert two, three and even more sheets at a time. Some machines can even include inserts or business reply envelopes. The more sheets you need to fold and insert, the more of an investment you will have to make in a machine.

How many envelopes do you need inserted per day? You will want to determine how many envelopes you need to send out on daily basis. Take into consideration how many envelopes you will need to send out later on down the road. An envelope stuffing machine is a significant investment and will last you for years. You want to be sure you get the right machine.

Most paper folding and inserting machines are rated for a monthly duty cycle. The monthly duty cycle is the amount of sheets a machine can safely fold and insert in a month without causing premature wear.

What is your budget? This may seem like a silly question, but your budget will play a huge part in determining the envelope-stuffing machine you purchase. If you need help finding a machine to fit your budget and needs, call us at 1-800-658-8788 to speak with an expert.

What are all the available options? If you only need to fold and insert one single sheet of paper, you have three different options available to you.

  1. Automatic Envelope Stuffing Machine – These machines do it all from start to finish. The fold, insert and seal the envelope shut.
  2. Pressure Folder Sealers – These machines fold and seal shut special pressure sensitive paper. This paper is typically perforated and does not require an envelope. You may have received a rebate, check or other form that was folded on a pressure sealing machine.
  3. Paper Folding Machine – If your monthly duty cycle isn’t huge, and you don’t need to stuff several sheets into an envelope, you may be able to use a paper folding machine to save you time. While you will still have to stuff the folded paper into an envelope, a paper folding machine will still cut your time down in half.

How much space is available? Be sure you take into account the measurements of the machine you will be purchasing. Make sure you have a desk or table that can not only accommodate the size of the machine, but the weight as well.

Which brand is the best? I have a tough time saying any one brand is the best. I can say that I have a lot of experience with Formax brand paper folding and inserting machines and they seem to be pretty solid. Formax customer service is excellent and their machines have a great rack record with our customers.

These some of the most common questions asked by our customers. Hopefully they have helped you get a better idea as to which machine you may need.

    Thanks for your comment about how you should choose a folding machine that has an inserter for convenient. I like how you said that the one you get should be able to fold as many papers as you need. My husband and I use a lot of paper products since we work at home, and we are considering looking into getting folder inserters. https://www.mbmachines.com/Products/List/?v=1&sl=4
