What’s New at Diamond Envelope
Diamond Envelope Corporation just added another web Machine SR4 in March of 2015. The printing capabilities are 4/1 with maximizing ability of run speeds from 500M per shift or 1.5 million per day. In the near future this machine will also have the capabilities of die cutting as well. Diamond Envelope is keeping up with the demands of our customers that keep getting larger volume of envelopes. Diamond strives for cost effected options and efficiency for all of our customers needs.
Our Prepress Department also has added a new machine, Graphtec Cutting Pro Plotter FC2250 Series.
This machine die cuts the envelope proof to specifications, creases and cuts window to window specs for each envelope. This saves a lot of time than cutting proofs out by hand and greater accuracy. Diamond strives to improve on turn time of getting proofs out to our customers in a timely fashion.
To our most valued clients and customers,
It is with much sadness and deep regret that we share this news with you. On Saturday, May 14, 2016 Founder and CEO of Diamond Envelope Corporation lost his battle with cancer and passed away. Alan was a great entrepreneur who truly cared about each and every employee, vendor and customer. He truly loved his career and never worked a day in his life, as Diamond Envelope was his heart and soul. He was always there to teach, guide, mentor and offer a helping hand. More than profits, he cared about his Diamond family and the clients they served.
While Diamond Envelope lost its founder, heaven has gained another angel. His legacy will be the future success of Diamond Envelope as his wisdom continues to guide the leaders of our company. We will continue to service you, our valued clients, with the same quality and care Alan put into each and every order.
Thank you for your kind thoughts and prayers. Have a great day and again thank you.
The Jania Family and the Diamond Envelope Family.

It has been a little over than four years since Diamond Envelope transitioned to the computer to plate (CTP) system. The new addition of the state of the art equipment has instantly impacted quality and customer satisfaction. The updated computer RIP (Raster Image Processor) and file organization system has led to a consistent and accurate output of finished product. With new procedures put into place, customer PDFs, Epson proofs, and final plates will be an exact replica with redundancy every time the customer orders their product. The transition from the old analog system to the new digital imaging provides the customer, and Diamond, with the flexibility to manipulate changes with great accuracy and minimal downtime. Diamond’s EFI proofing system allows the customer to view the final product prior to the press run due to the fingerprinting of the presses to the EFI color profiles. This is done by running test targets on press, reading densities of the targets and then creating profiles that match the press proof. Diamond utilizes Flint Flexo plates, one of the best in the industry, to hold close tolerances and dot sharpness. Diamond Envelope offers a full, state of the art prepress department to fulfill all customer’s needs.
Eduardo Colon walked into the Personnel Department at Transo Envelope Company on June 19, 1972 looking for a job and found a career. Known as “Ed” or “Eddie” today, his story is a true testament that anyone through hard work, dedication, loyalty and commitment can go from an apprentice to high-level management.
Ed was hired on that day and immediately went to work on the 2nd shift as a stock handler for the Wide Range Department. Noticing his constant hustle and mechanical interest, he was promoted to Apprentice Adjuster for the Wide Range Department in August of 1972. At this time Alan Jania was beginning his training as the Chicago plant estimator and formed a working friendship with Ed. A working relationship and friendship that is now going on 40 years and counting!
The Apprentice Adjuster program was set to take approximately 4-years before an individual would be promoted to “A” adjuster. Due to Ed’s dedication and constant work ethic he completed the 4-year program in only 2 years. In July 1974 Ed was promoted from Apprentice to “A” Adjuster for the Wide Range Department.
In September 1975 Ed was promoted to “B” adjuster for the newly formed RA Folding Department. Transo Chicago was integrating three new RA folding machines, which required the most highly skilled employees in the operation to assist. Ed was surely considered one of the best.
Two and half years later Ed was promoted to Senior “C” adjuster for the 2nd shift in the RA Department. This was a title used to designate an assistant supervisor role.
In February 1979 Ed was approached and asked if he would accept a promotion to Supervisor of the entire Wide Range line. This manufacturing line consisted of 12 Folding Machines and approximately 50 people. Ed saw this as a step backwards, even with the amount of machines and staff to supervise, since the RA folding machines were taking over the envelope industry. Ed turned down the promotion and remained the Senior “C” in the RA Folding Department.
In March 1985 Alan Jania, President of the newly started Diamond Envelope Corporation, called Ed and offered him the position of 2nd Shift Superintendent. Although a smaller operation than Transo, Diamond Envelope offered Ed an opportunity to become a Shift Supervisor, which he would not attain for some 15 more years at Transo. He accepted the offer and began his career at Diamond Envelope Corporation.
In March of 1990 as Diamond Envelope was planning its move from Broadview to Naperville, Ed was promoted to 1st Shift Superintendent. Beginning in April 1990 he was actually operating the company from two buildings and at the same time, received Diamond’s third 527 as the first machine in the new Naperville building.
On May 3, 1995 Ed was promoted to Plant Manager. Diamond Envelope recognized the importance of having a Plant Manager that was knowledgeable and skilled on Diamond’s particular equipment, making it run efficiently; but also, understood the priority to maintaining the equipment to the highest standards.
In May 2000 Ed conquered a second relocation to the new Aurora building. One week into the move the machine erectors hired for the move, walked off the job. Diamond was left high and dry, with less than 60 days to move all the equipment and make repairs to the old building. As panic began to set for the entire management team and Jania family, Ed was the steady influence to all and took on this challenge. Ed organized and completed the move in a conscientious, safe, efficient and timely basis.
In February 2006 Ed was promoted to Vice-President of Manufacturing as a reward for his years of dedication and service. Not your typical suit and tie VP, but he is well respected within the industry and by all of our suppliers. His knowledge of the equipment and ability to conquer any obstacles presented, is second to none.
Ed remains the VP of Manufacturing today and Diamond Envelope is proud to have earned his friendship and have a better company due to his leadership. You will not find Ed in his office on your next plant tour of Diamond Envelope. He may be buried in a machine or overseeing continuous improvement projects. But understand, Diamond Envelope would not be successful and growing if it wasn’t for Ed Colon and his dedication to the company all these years.
I was asked to do a career day presentation for my daughter’s third grade class.
I started out with a brief explanation of our company and that we make over a billion envelopes a year. I went on to say how we bring in large rolls of paper and cut, fold, glue and print until the end result is an envelope. I showed them samples of envelopes we have made.
Each child was given a die-cut piece of colored paper that was a #10 diagonal seam envelope (before it was folded down). I asked the children to get out a glue stick and then 31 third graders and I folded down and glued an envelope together into what was in most cases, a useable envelope. I cannot begin to describe how much fun the kids had doing this and the amazement on their faces when they took this odd shaped piece of paper and turned it into an envelope.
Next, I showed them how to address the envelope to themselves. I had no idea how difficult this task would be with a bunch of third graders, but somehow we got through it. Lastly, I gave the children a stamp and I showed them where to apply it on the envelope. The kids turned their self-made envelopes into me and I told them to watch their mailbox for the next few days and that “their” envelope would show up at their house.
The rest of the year I heard back from the students and the parents about how much the kids liked the presentation and how excited everyone was when they received their own envelope in the mail. It really made me think about how nice it is to get something in the mail. Maybe next time you’re going to type a quick e-mail or text and hit send, maybe taking an extra few minutes to write your note or letter and then mail it, might just make your message have more impact or sentiment when it is received.
