What is Pressure Seal and How Can It Reduce Operating Costs?

What is ULTRASEAL Pressure Seal?
ULTRASEAL is Relyco’s revolutionary pressure seal solution offering businesses and marketers a cost-effective and environmentally efficient way to create, process and deliver mailed pieces without an envelope.  Forms can also be custom printed in today’s office laser printers, complete with postage, allowing for control of costs, personalized designs and either bulk or one-off delivery of mailed pieces when necessary.

By eliminating the printed envelope from the process, pressure seal has become the more efficient and “green” alternative when doing office mailings.  Folding, stuffing, gluing and heating of mailings and envelopes are things of the past.  Pressure seal is the future.

What are the advantages of using pressure seal?
Once you print the pressure seal form or check in your color or black and white laser printer, they can be fed into a pressure seal machine.  These machines take care of all of the folding and sealing, utilizing pressure that activates the special paper coating.  The machine completely seals the edges of the piece to create the ready-for-mail document.

Is pressure seal less expensive than traditional office mailing?
Taking on any office process transformation can, at first, seem costly and time consuming.  However, pressure seal is the easiest and most affordable implementation you will ever make.  The savings in both time and money compared to manual processing is easily calculated.  The graphs below illustrate exactly what can be gained.

ULTRASEAL vs. Manual Processing















ULTRASEAL Pressure Seal takes the need for water, glue, heat and envelopes completely away – as forms and checks are manufactured with a special coating that is activated during the sealing process.  Once your forms and checks run through the pressure seal machine, they are sealed, secure and ready to be mailed.

How ULTRASEAL equipment works










The most common documents that can be sent efficiently and securely with ULTRASEAL include:

  • Paychecks
  •  Invoices
  •  Tax Forms
  • Utility Bills 
  •  Medical Bills
  •  Statements
  •  Test Results
