Default Please help me find 6 7/8" x 5" frosted plastic envelopes

I am finding a multitude of uses for the Sizzix Storage Envelopes. These are the 6 7/8" x 5" ones made from heavy frosted plastic with a tuck in flap. Can anyone help me find these in quantity? Sizzix sells these in packs of three costing anywhere from $4.59 to $6 a pack. I really need something same or similar but more affordable. My money is on you, SCS!

Theonlinestore called Oozak in Kalamazoo, MI now has their own version of the envelopes like Avery Elle. They are 7 3/8 by 5 5/8 inches and sell 50 for 7.19. They might be a consideration. https://www.oozak.com/proddetail.php?prod=OOZSDL-50 . They are not the frosted envelopes like Sizzix nor are they as heavy but they work very well.

Some of us have some of the Sizzix envelopes from die sets we have purchased that we are willing to pass on to someone who wants them. Just saying!

I may have a few hanging around, but they're out in my storage room and not sure how many might be there. PM me if you'd like me to check.

I think she's looking for the hard plastic envelopes. I don't think the ones being linked to are the same. They look like the heavy "cellophane-type" envelopes that many of us use to store stamps & dies in. The ones the OP is looking for are the ones that have either a snap closure or a tuck-in flap with a slit.

I use these a lot too.

If I'm mistaken, sorry.

Yes, unfortunately, I covet those heavy, frosted envelopes with the tuck in flap. Some earlier ones had a snap closure. These are heavy duty with heat sealed joins along the edge. One Sizzix item number is 654452, for the three pack. I ordered some bigger Avery Elle to compare.
Thank you for your efforts, faithful SCS friends. Onward.

Ask Sizziz if they would do a bulk discount on them. Nothing to lose.

wow this is not easy to search on....you type envelope and get back everything but.

So far I am seeing Jam Paper has a choice but still at about a little a buck each and a little bigger

Plastic Envelopes with Tuck Flap Closure | JAM Paper

If I see anything else I will let you know.

Of couse I missed that Loyce found something to try but anyway I found this.


This opens much wider for storage and I am not seeing a price which may mean wholesale levels of hundreds-it would make a nice holder for a card set gift.

Sorry. I am crapping out. CTMH also does a plastic snap envelope but it is square and I cant tell if they would sell them.

Avery Elle really weren't as heavy as I would like. I appreciate everyone's suggestions. SCS never lets me down. Sizzix has these on sale for $4.89 for the pack of three but then want over $2 per pack=$10.98 shipping. I apologize for being so cheap. Perhaps when Joanns has 40% off with free shipping?

Okay, okay. I bit the bullet and ordered from Tupelo Designs. $4.75 for a pack of three and no shipping. I have ordered from Tupelo before and was pleased with their price and service.
