Pressure sealers have been an office staple for larger organizations for quite some time. They offer added efficiency, speed and security to a tedious process, and are so incredibly easy to use.
Let’s take a look at some pressure sealer FAQs to determine if this should be an investment you should consider for your business.
What is a pressure sealer?
A pressure sealer is a machine that folds and securely seals one-page documents. It does this by passing the pre-printed document through a process which creates ‘cohesives’ – specific patterns which are pressed into the form. Then, the pressure sealer folds the paper according to your requirements, and aligns the two complementary edges, using pressure to fuse them together.
This makes it perfect for applications like mailing letters or documents that need to stay intact until they reach their destination!
What are the advantages of using a pressure sealer?
- Fast: Pressure sealers are fast, simple, and much faster than hand sealing. For example, the Formax FE-1200 can seal up to 2100 sheets per hour, including the option of C, Z, or half folds.
- Easy to Use: The friction feeder pulls through documents to fold according to your settings, and simply pushes them out on the other side, ready to mail.
- Cost Effective: Save time with a desktop pressure sealer and sidestep the tedium of stuffing and addressing envelopes.

What kinds of documents can I use my pressure sealer to fold?
You can use a pressure sealer to fold a variety of documents, including:
- Invoices and statements
- Tax forms
- PIN codes
- Medical information
- Utility bills
Essentially, anything that needs to arrive unopened can be pressure sealed. However, as this system is so handy, simply printing the recipient’s address onto the reverse side of direct mail, marketing information, or promotional material eliminates the need for envelopes. More cost savings!
Simply put, a pressure sealer does the job of folding and sealing documents (minus envelopes) quickly and securely. Small businesses can choose from small desktop options, while larger organisations would benefit from larger, faster models. Choose your pressure sealer here.
