A7 envelopes are the companion to greeting cards and invitations. Sized at 7.25" x 5.25" as a perfect fit for 5x7 folding cards, invitations or postcards. The 70lb smooth uncoated paper has a matte finish for a natural and subtle color presentation.
Your art is printed in full color with full bleed which means that you can print from edge to edge, on the flap and with art that wraps around back to front and front to back.
Window Is in a Fixed Spot
Window placement is always the same, we aren't able to customize the placement of the window on these envelopes
Color Will Vary
These envelopes are gang run printed and color will vary from run to run. Also, the color will vary from other products, so if you are ordering envelopes and letterhead - the colors might not match.
Artwork Shouldn't End on Flaps
These envelopes are first printed, then folded and converted to envelopes. Because of the process, designs cannot end right at the edge of the flap, or front to back. Trying to have a white front, and a colored flap will always result in slivers of color showing through to the front. We recommend having a white or full coverage color or patten background and not trying to have artwork end right on the flap or edges.
Greys Can Shift
CMYK Process colors in the grey range and de-saturated images can shift in color throughout the print run and may cause the greys to appear either cooler or warmer. For a neutral grey, we recommend converting all grey values and de-saturated images to true greyscale consisting of K (black) only values.
Your Blue Might not Really Be Blue
Due to the nature of club-run printing, you may experience color variation in solid fills of blue. For great blue results, we recommend a 30% difference between your Cyan and Magenta levels to ensure a nice rich dark blue, rather than purple.
Use Rich Black
For the richest of deep dark blacks in print use 50/40/40/100 as the CMYK value. If printing small black text (or knocked out text), we recommend a k only black (0/0/0/100) to avoid misregistration issues.
No Printing on the Inside
We do not offer printing on the inside of the envelopes.
