About TransUltra™ Paper Tabs

Our TransUltra™ wafer seals are dramatically more translucent than regular trans tabs and are also compliant with the USPS regulations (39 CFR Part 111) for the mailing of booklets and Folded Self Mailers. We use a 2.2 mil Translucent Ultra Paper, which is ideal for fast tab application. We avoid fracturing the liner when die cutting to eliminate web breaks when tabbing. For more information about the quality of Waferseals.com tabs see our quality assurance page and warranty.

The cost of the new TransUltra™ 1-1/2" tab is approximately 30% more than the standard translucent tab, but that cost is still only 3/10ths of one penny per individual tab. The total cost for three tabs on a booklet is less than a penny vs. the 20 cents increase per booklet ( 3oz 9 x 6" ) if sent flat rate without tabs. This means that for customers, the expense of bulk rate mail is not in the cost of the tab. This is not to say that all tabs are made equal! Quality matters, and those that choose Waferseals.com tabs know that when it comes to running mailing tabs, no tab runs faster or more trouble-free than a Waferseals.com tab.
