SQUARE ENVELOPE

ENVELOPE TYPES AND SIZES IN OCEANSIDE, CALIFORNIA

You need envelopes, we got envelopes. Here are just a few of the sizes and styles that we offer:

 

Announcement envelopes – These envelopes are great for when you have something special to announce. Whether it’s a company event, promotion or just a way to keep in touch with important clients/customers, announcement envelopes are the best way to do it.

 

They are also referred to as “A-Style” and have a wide range of applications. From photographs, to greeting cards, to promotional pieces (even direct mail), A-Style is the way to go.

 

Baronial envelopes – Are used for both social and commercial applications. The generally come with a pointed flap and are available in may sizes, textures and colors. There are 4 standard sizes:

 

  • 4 Baronial
  • 5-1/2 Baronial
  • 6 Baronial
  • Lee

 

Booklets – Not quite a book and a bit more than a brochure, booklets are the perfect way of succinctly conveying a bit more information than a single sentence. Typically, they only have a few pages inside and have covers that are made out of paper. This type of style is great for sales materials, reports and anything else where you need to give detailed information. There is a longer open side and that makes it okay for automatic insertion.

 

Correspondence and Business – These are the workhorses that power any business. They can be used for both personal and business communications. If you’re looking for ones that are ideal for machine insertion, get the ones with side seam flap styles as they will work better.

 

Wallet flaps give a wide area that is perfect for imprinting. Square flaps should not be inserted into machines and this is due to the potential for complications that could arise.

 

Catalog envelopes – As the name states, these envelopes are big enough to put a catalog inside and are recommended by the post office and various other shipping companies. They come in a wide variety of shapes, but they usually are rectangle in size.

 

Square envelopes – There’s really not much to be said about squares…other than they tend to draw attention due to their unique size. Most people are used to getting rectangular shaped mail, so when they receive a completely square one, it causes them to take notice. Squares are great for direct mail when you want to get as many people as possible to open your letter.
