Envelope formats


What about the formats of envelopes? Which format is the right one?

It starts with the size of the mail item you want to send. Envelope sizes are standardised to C formats. From C3, C4, C5, C6, C7, through C8. These formats correspond to the well-known DIN formats for sheets of printing paper: A3, A4, A5, A6, A7 and A8. A sheet of printing paper of the A4 DIN format size fits into an envelope of the C4 size.



Special envelope formats

In addition to the A4 and A5 formats, Envelopeshop.com also offers the A4+ and A5+ formats. These are slightly larger and are particularly suitable if you want to send more than two sheets of paper in one envelope.

Other special formats are the elongated or DIN long formats. Square envelopes and small envelopes are often used for festive occasions such as births and birthdays..
