The Declared Value pouch: a transport worthy of its contents

decomatic developed declared value envelopes to send sensitive items and documents of commercial or intellectual value. A declared value envelope can contain :

  • Valuable items such as precious stones, broken and unbroken jewellery, branded accessories and clothing, watches, bags, etc.
  • Official documents such as bearer vouchers, luncheon vouchers, holiday vouchers, bearer vouchers, collector coins, gift vouchers, etc.

The declared value envelope manufactured by decomatic is approved by La Poste and is used in its network.

A serene transport

Do you want to send a piece of jewelry in an envelope? Choosing a declared value bag means having peace of mind when sending your precious items. Untearable and waterproof, the declared value envelope is effective.


  • Security : the envelope is only given to the addressee or his representative against signature. In addition, the sender receives proof of posting before sending.
  • Serenity : in the event of loss or damage, the sender is reimbursed for the amount declared during the deposit.
  • Traceability : the sender follows the delivery of his shipment 24/7.

When sending your Declared Value envelope, you can request two services:

  • The notice of receipt in order to keep a proof of delivery of your shipment.
  • Cash on delivery (COD) so that your mail is only delivered to the recipient in exchange for payment. This service is only available in France.

Capacity and destinations of the declared value bag

The Declared Value envelope can contain sensitive items worth between €0 and €5000. Compensation varies depending on the countries to which the envelope is sent.

Its capacities differ depending on the country of destination:

  • In France, the pouch can hold 5kgs of valuables
  • Internationally, the maximum weight allowed is 2kgs.

Doubly secure routing

In addition to its declared value envelope, decomatic creates a rigid box. Compatible with the envelope, it surrounds sensitive objects and keeps them in good place during transport and storage. It simply slips into the envelope in the correct size.

Available in a range of sizes and materials, it provides extra protection for fragile items.

The easy-to-use Declared Value bag

Our declared envelopes are available in standard or custom designs.

The declared value envelope in accordance with La Poste standards

The Declared Value envelope is not only an asset for its solid material and traceability, it is particularly useful as it integrates with the national delivery service, La Poste.

Since 1994, La Poste has been offering secure envelopes in order to improve its performance and the security of shipments. The Technical Research Department has granted decomatic an approval thanks to our ability to meet the specifications. Our Declared Value envelopes are compliant and can be used in La Poste’s network.

Our Declared Value envelopes, referenced 402/ECEEC, are intended to be used only within the framework of the “Declared Value” service of La Poste and must respect the constraints of the carrier.

The Declared Value envelope has several closing options

When using the decomatic Declared Value envelope, there are several ways to seal it:

  • Through one or more seals with a special imprint or mark;
  • With 3M Scotch Tape type 820 displaying your personal brand through the heat seal.

When you send your important items and documents around the world, via International Declared Value, you may, in some cases, ship without a seal. At that point, glue or tape your envelopes and display your signature with a distinctive mark or imprint.

The declared value envelope and formalities

When you send your envelopes to countries outside the European Union or overseas, you are required to present documents relating to customs and / or tax formalities proving your compliance with applicable regulations.

Remember, formalities vary according to the country of destination.
