3 Ways to Send Secure Letters with ClickSend

Do you need to send secure letters, with confidence that it will be tamper-proof and delivered intact?

Email has now become the preferred mail service for many consumers. And while the events of this year have forced many companies to change the way they do business, there are still occasions when email just does not quite cut it.

The traditional letter postal service is still very popular for many people all around the world. Last year, the United Postal Service delivered almost 150 billion items of mail, to around 160 million delivery points. Paper postal mail passes through many hands between the sender and the recipient, so the security of the contents during its journey is of utmost importance.

At the click of a button (or trigger of a post API), you can send your important documents to a cloud printer.

3 Ways to Secure Your Bulk Letters with ClickSend

1. Letters in Security Envelopes

Our security envelopes provide a simple way to protect sensitive information in the mail. These envelopes are tinted which prevents people being able to see through the paper, even when it’s held up to the light. This is a popular option for sending medical records, cheques, government correspondence, financial records, and anything else containing confidential or classified information. Our envelopes also include a tamper-evident security seal.

2. Concealed Security Square

A low-cost alternative, this is an envelope that conceals an area of your mail containing a password or PIN. We print the paper of the envelope with a blacked-out area which covers the sensitive information on both sides. This renders it impermeable – you can’t see through the envelope, even if it is held up to the light. This is a more economical alternative to secure PIN code tabs.

3. Secure PIN Code Tab

A concealed PIN is critical and the superior option for concealing a PIN or password is via a secure PIN code tab.

Letters with Concealed PIN

At ClickSend, we use patented security technology to include panels to obscure PIN codes in letters.

These panels are tamper-evident; the data is printed onto the top layer of the tab. To visually access the PIN, the tab must be removed. The patterned black background ensures that if access to the PIN is attempted, the document will be visibly defaced and the customer will know straight away that this has happened.
