You would pay after each mailing. If you choose to mail monthly, you will be billed 12 times per year. This way you will only be billed for the exact number of names on your file at the time of mailing.
Statistics show the more you mail, the more income you receive. However, there are a couple of factors that need to be considered. First, usually smaller parishes do not see a significant increase in income by mailing 12 (monthly) times per year as opposed to 6 (bi-monthly) times per year. Also, consider the number of envelopes included in each mailing. If a higher number of envelopes is inserted, a higher postage cost will be assessed.
We do have special stock stewardship designs that can be printed on the face or flap of the weekly envelope at no additional cost. This allows you to place working information on the face or flap side of the envelope. It is not necessary to use our stock stewardship designs.
We prefer to have the file 30 days prior to your first dated envelope. However, some circumstances may require a slightly earlier submit time.
We have designed special software to decipher daily scans from every post office across the USA. This allows us to follow a mail piece from our production line to the delivery destination. Having the capability to track your mail pieces allows us to be proactive in ensuring a timely delivery.
Simply provide us with approximately 30 days lead time and we can quickly make adjustments to your next mailing.

Yes, please understand offertory envelopes can be mailed to your parishioners for as little as $2.25 per year, including postage. So, if parishioners ever want to participate using an envelope, they have more than paid for that convenience.

Simply sign the bottom, mark when you would like delivery, include a copy of your weekly envelope and listing of special collection envelopes. We will then send you a proof and formal order confirmation.
No, we work hard in controlling our costs. We control manufacturing from start to finish which allows for significant savings. The owners are the market directors, on-the-floor managers, purchasing agents and visionaries. The owners are hands on every part of the operation.
A common statement heard around the company is: “if it is our fault, it is our responsibility to deliver an accurate product”. We will reprint and reship any product that is not accurately printed to meet your specifications.
We hear this often. We encourage parishes to order early for a couple reasons. First, we can make an envelope much less expensive in February than we can in November. Late in the year we are working 24/7, making it more difficult to keep production and supply costs at a minimum. However, if you order early (before March 30th) we will store your order in our warehouse and mark for delivery in the month you desire.

VelocicorTM is a proprietary blend of mechanical and technological advances designed to improve the quality and speed of printing while reducing waste and costs.
Church Budget merged custom-developed software with advances in technology and manufacturing into a unique system capable of delivering VDP (variable data printing) at extremely high speeds.
Variable Data Printing (VDP) is a system whereby each printed item may be different from the previous, much like a home or office printer can print a multi-page document. For many printing companies, VDP can drastically slow down the printing process. Most high-speed printing equipment doesn’t even have VDP capabilities limiting their printing effectiveness. Church Budget’s VelocicorTM printing technology currently allows two-sided envelope printing at speeds of 800 feet per minute, making it one of the fastest printing processes in the industry.
New technology in testing shows that we can achieve an even higher quality image while maintaining the speed.
Church Budget believes that offering envelopes can be much more than a recording instrument for contributions. They are an under-utilized avenue to deliver messages to your donors. With the advent of VelocicorTM Church Budget can now offer full color, photographic images on both sides of your envelopes at a tremendous cost savings over what your current supplier can offer.
Many churches just like yours are looking for ways to increase giving and reduce costs. Church Budget envelopes engage your givers by delivering powerful messages and full color images while still costing you far less than the same old black and white envelopes we’ve seen for decades. Click our logo at the top to explore our site and see the many designs and exclusive series we print.
Using the reverse side of your envelope, we can print one of our many exclusive envelope series to deliver educational or inspirational messages to your donors. Many churches have experienced the increased income that comes from these beautiful envelopes. Other churches find that simply adding a full color photograph of their church and giving their envelope design an overhaul can increase giving.
Due to a lack of innovation in printing technology and environmental regulations, prices in the envelope industry are hurting the budgets of churches worldwide. Church Budget has partnered with some innovative companies in the ink industry to drive down the cost of producing environmentally-friendly “green” inks. These cost-effective inks and the VelocicorTM printing system allow us to drastically reduce costs from 35-50% below what other envelope manufacturers charge. New advances on the horizon will enable us to keep prices low and increase printing quality even further.
