ENVELOPE TYPES AND SIZES IN PEARL, MS

Getting your envelope just right can mean the difference between an excellent impression or doubtful thoughts with your customers. Don’t guess about the right envelope for your need and work with the envelope design and printing experts at AlphaGraphics Pearl. We’ll help you with every step of the process including selecting the right size, type, and material for your envelopes and enclosures.

THE RIGHT SIZE FOR YOU

While the sizes of envelopes that are available are nearly endless because of the ability to make custom envelopes, there are many common sizes that will suit most of your marketing or correspondence needs. Here are a few of the most frequently used envelope types and sizes.

 

Announcement Envelopes

 

These types of envelopes are commonly used for sending formal and informal invitations such as showers, parties, weddings, and other ceremonies. They can be used with flat or folded cards and the enclosures fit comfortably with enough space to fill the envelope without being difficult to insert.

 

  • A2 envelopes are 4.375” x 5.75” and hold an enclosure that is 4.25” x 5.5”
  • A6 envelopes are 4.75” x 6.5” and hold an enclosure that is 4.625” x 6.25”
  • A7 envelopes are 5.25” x 7.25 and hold an enclosure that is 5” x 7”

Catalog & Booklet Envelopes

 

These envelopes are ideal for sales collateral, booklets, and catalogs, as well as business documentation. Booklet envelopes open on the long size and catalog envelopes open on the short side. You’ll want to consider how customers will be opening the envelopes and the orientation of your content as you decide which type of envelope to use.

 

  • 6” x 9” envelopes easily accommodate folded sheets and booklets with enclosures up to 5.75” x 9”
  • 9” x 12” booklet or catalog envelopes easily accommodate a full letter size sheet at 8.5“ x 11”
  • 10” x 13” can be used for 9” x 12” pieces or slightly oversized materials

Business & Correspondence Envelopes

 

The most commonly used envelope sizes for business are #9 and #10 envelopes. #10 envelopes are 4.125” x 9.5” and accommodate a tri-folded letter sheet of paper. #9 envelopes are slightly smaller at 3.875” x 8.875” and accommodate return payments and other smaller forms.
