Univenture Debuts New Biodegradable EcoEndureT Mailers at Graph Expo

Press release from the issuing company

Marysville, OH -- September 7, 2007 -- Univenture, Inc., the award winning
inventor and manufacturer of a wide array of environmentally sustainable
products, announced it is extending its product line to offer biodegradable
polypropylene direct mail products and solutions.  This new addition to the
EcoEndure product line featuring biodegradable polypropylene will debut at
Graph Expo on September 9-12, 2007 at McCormick Place South in Chicago, IL.
The EcoEndure product line and Univenture's complete line of environmentally
friendly and sustainable direct mail products will be available for viewing
in Booth 2493 in the Mailing and Fulfillment Center.
"Univenture's commitment to the environment began with the Safety-sleeveR
disc sleeves which reduced the plastic needed for a disc package by over 90%
and was our first product invented and manufactured," said Ross Youngs,
Univenture's CEO and Founder.  "The new EcoEndure EnvyPak envelopes and
mailers for direct mail, manufactured of biodegradable polypropylene, are an
exciting addition to our product line. Univenture can now offer additional
products and solutions for marketing and direct mail professionals seeking
environmentally sound options to choose from," added Youngs.
The EcoEndure EnvyPaks are produced with biodegradable polypropylene.
Univenture products produced with Enhanced Bio Decomposition additives
maintain the same useful life as non-EBD packaging throughout its useful
life. It is not until the envelope or package is disposed of that the
material properties break down.
Univenture's EnvyPaks manufactured of 100% polypropylene are resistant to
chemical attack, offer a wider temperature range, and are an ideal material
for direct mail campaigns. Equally important, polypropylene is 100%
recyclable worldwide.
Univenture has also developed a line of EnvyPak envelopes manufactured from
100% sustainable and annually renewable PLA, made from corn.   The company's
sustainable PLA EnvyPaks provide direct mail and packaging alternatives from
an annually renewable and sustainable resource.
EnvyPak is the clear choice when the message needs to shine through,
providing branding both inside and out. Recipients can immediately see what
is inside. This helps ensure the sender's message will be quickly seen,
enhancing the likelihood the envelope will be opened and the contents read,
watched, or listened to.
The most notable benefit of Univenture's EnvyPak technology is that it
encourages such a wide variety of products from very diverse applications.
Custom designed products can be manufactured very economically, making it a
perfect alternative for marketing and direct mail projects. You control the
creativity, to impact your response.
All EnvyPak envelopes feature a wide variety of eye-popping materials with
numerous customization options, including full-color and translucent,
customized printing, or foil decoration on all its surfaces, whether used on
the outside or in.
EnvyPak closure options include permanent and resealable peel and seal
closures and are also in compliance with traditional hot-melt automation and
adhesive applications. Perforated tear strips are also easily incorporated
for no-hassle opening.  EnvyPak envelopes meet USPS requirements and
specifically comply with UFSM 1000 and AFSM 100 automation criteria.  All
EnvyPak mailers have been tested by the American Standard Testing Method
(ASTM) and meet all Domestic Mail standards for the United States Post
Office. The CD mailer is also automation compliant with standard
disc-insertion equipment
EnvyPak bind-in products offer solid design for use in all perfect and
saddle-stitch bound publications, and are compatible with automated disc
insertion equipment.
