Pip Production FAQs

Most package insert programs are collated into 6x9 envelopes. A standard single-sheet insert is 5.5" x 8.5", printed on 60# stock. Two-panel inserts can be printed on glossy paper or card stock. These pieces generally fold to 3.5" x 5.5", and glossy stock is on 45#.
Package insert programs generally require for pieces to be delivered one month before the mail date because the envelopes are pre-collated at one facility and then shipped to the fulfillment center to be placed in the outgoing packages. A few programs do not pre-collate pieces, and instead, put the inserts loosely into the packages. Lead times for programs that are not pre-collated are shorter.
