What is the difference between a peel and seal envelope and a simple seal envelope?
Before describing what makes them different, lets discuss quickly what makes them similar. They are both types of Self Seal envelopes, that unlike traditional gummed envelopes, do NOT need to be moistened to seal.
A simple seal envelope is a commercial envelope that has "Flip-n-Stick" flaps that make it quick and easy to seal your envelopes.
This envelope has two latex surfaces that seal on contact. You simply turn up the bottom flap, turn down the top flat, and on contact.... the envelope seals.
PEEL & SEAL:
With a peel and seal envelope, you simply peel off a paper strip and press for a permanent seal.
