JobsNOW: Local envelope company offers an opportunity to learn and grow

Local News

Envelope1 is a fixture in Columbiana, Salem and Boardman. They provide quality envelopes of all shapes and size to businesses across the country.

The Columbiana location is always extremely busy.  Envelope1 has 27 machines, running 24-hours a day. 

“We’ve been around since 1995. We do make 4.5 billion envelopes a year for corporate American,” said Tarry Pidgeon, Envelope1 owner.

Envelope1 needs more workers, including people to package envelopes and operate the machines.

The machine adjustor is watching for anything that stops the machine and immediately fixes the problem.  The operators check the quality, take the envelopes and put them in a box.

You’ll need to pass a drug test before starting at Envelope1. The work is not excruciating and you won’t be doing the same thing every day. You do have to be dependable.

“We have a strict attendance policy, but we will take on anybody willing to do the job and train them along the way,” Pidgeon said.

The work at Envelope1 challenges your mind, checking to make sure the glue doesn’t bleed out and plastic windows are glued as well as the flaps. Machines can crank out 800 envelopes a minute.

“You have a different perspective after you make the envelope because when you get your mail, you are thinking oh man, maybe we made that envelope or it makes it more satisfying when you get your mail,” said Taylor Pidgeon, Envelope1 production supervisor.  

Envelope 1 has 240 employees but needs more, if you have the right stuff.

“Someone that is willing to dive in and make something happen, get into a situation that is going to be challenging, somebody that wants to go to the next level and be a successful person. Those are the kinds of people that we want to have,” Taylor Pidgeon said.

If you have mechanical skills, Envelope1 could use you, too. It has positions which can use that expertise.

You can apply in person at Envelope1, 41969 State Route 344, Columbiana, Ohio  44408. Applications are right inside the front door. You can also apply online or email a resume to
