Envelope Styles and Sizes

The humble envelope, an often overlooked but important piece of folded paper that acts as the main vessel for our mail. It enwraps so many letters and leaflets every year but what of its kind is truly known and appreciated. This lovely conveyer of parcels not only provides information as to where it needs to be delivered but servers as the first impression for the materials found within. A beautifully crafted envelope can heighten the already fantastic design of your printed material.

Below is a quick synopsis of envelopes along with their various sizes and templates to help you design the best envelope for your needs. If you need any help or have any question we are always here, just call 602-437-9700 or come by and visit us.
