That's great. I know you will love it. HSN is usually pretty quick about shipping.

Is there a specific date after which I should place an order that will assure I get the updated envelope board? I want one (of course!), but definitely one that has the correct measurements.

Thanks for all the info here!

I'm thinking that if I place an order (still haven't because I want the updated version) that I will make sure I order from a site where I can comment that is the version I am ordering otherwise there is always the risk that it could be the last one of the original version on the shelf or one returned etc.

I haven't heard any dates to order to make sure you get a corrected one. Maybe someone else has??

I am curious, though. Does anyone know how many corrections were made? I am assuming it was on two or three? Am I right?

Kathy, for you, and all those others concerned about the "correct" measurements, I just printed out the new, corrected measurement chart, and compared it to the measurements on the Envelope Punch I have.

There are quite a few changes, both in paper size and scoring measurements. 16 changes, to be exact, affecting 12 envelope sizes.

Now, most of the changes are tiny, amounting to 1/8 or 1/4 inch. I won't list them all - there are too many. They apply to odd size envelopes that I will never make anyway, so it doesn't bother me at all.

Here is an example: Envelope size 3-1/2 x 7: Paper size went from 8-3/4 to 8-5/8. That is only a 1/8 difference. The score line on this size went from 3-1/4 to 3. That is a 1/4 difference. It is highly unlikely I will ever make a 3-1/2 x 7 card, but I have the printed revised chart should I ever need it.

I am a creature of habit, and 99% of the time I make A2 size cards, which I have the right measurements for. Very occasionally I make a 5 x 7 card, and that measurement is correct.

Thanks Bugga. I didn't realize there were that many changes, but I have printed out the chart too. If I get the one with the wrong measurements, then I will probably tape/laminate the new chart onto the board, just so I know where it is. I'm like you, will mostly be doing the A2 card size....

Hearing of all these mistakes AND that they couldn't get this RIGHT from the beginning on a new product is VERY DISHEARTENING! I COULDN'T PAY FULL PRICE for a flawed tool! Are they going to CORRECT THIS so others don't have to go back & laminate the correct measurements on later? I was SO HYPED about this product & now I'm NOT PLANNING on getting it till I see they CORRECT THEIR MISTAKES!

I'm sure I read on a previous page the corrected version would be available from the end of the month.

I opted for the "flawed" version; I'm not perfect, so we should work well together!! Seems like it'll be an easy fix, and I'm excited to begin using it.

Love the adjustments some of you have suggested on earlier posts for those embellished cards - what a great idea. I'll have to make the note to attach to the board so I don't forget. Thank you for sharing that.......

Mine is on its way and it's got the incorrect measurements. So it's going to get a little help from the Xyron machine. I'll be printing the revised chart then running it through the Xyron to laminate with adhesive.

What a terrific idea!!! On Sesame Street they would call that "cooperation"!!! hee hee

My Xyron machine is the smaller one for ribbons, etc. so I doubt I can squeeze the chart in mine, but I love your idea just the same!! I guess I'm going to have to stick to the packing tape or get Office Depot/Staples to do it for me.... They offer that service, don't they?

By the way, Canadians -- I asked Sheila at Scrapping Great Deals (terrific online store) and she'll be carrying it! Great news for me! Now to be patient until it comes in.

Got a notification from Fran (I think) at Frantic Stamper. She said that she had some of the Envelope Punch that need the revised measurement chart (which she included as an attachment) and did I want one. I am a little OCD about paying full price than having to make adjustments. (I guess SU clear stamps are the exceptions) Should I wait until April or get one now? Does using a Xyron work? I have a 5" one. Would it be easy to stick the revised chart on straight? See I admitted, up front, that I am a little OCD!

Check out youtube. There is a guy there who put his on. I think he is known as the gentleman crafter or something to that effect...If I can find that particular one, I will link it for you.

I found the tutorial. Jim, the Gentleman Crafter on youtube. He shows how he put the fix on his board. I would take either one, just patiently waiting!

Thank you for the link. I still have to think about this. The items I have had laminated are a little thicker so do you think adding a laminated chart will 'catch' your paper when you are using the Envelope Punch. I know some people would not be bothered but..... (OCD person sitting on my shoulder whispering in my ear.)

After reading how everyone is so enthusiastic about this new tool, I want to use one yesterday. This is what you call dithering!

I'm a bit OCD too, so I know where you are coming from. I don't think I would laminate, I think I would use a good wide packing tape and cut the edges smoothly. I want this board so much that I think I wouldn't mind fixing it. I can always get another and pass the first one along to friends who aren't OCD. Having said that, mine is on preorder for mid to late April, so I am thinking I will probably get the new version. I did print off the "fix" onto cardstock and it looks like it is a perfect fit for size.

I just watched his "fix" on the video. I printed out the new revised chart, and unless you are great at resizing PDF's, it prints quite a bit larger than the chart on the board. I placed it over the chart on my board, and it covered up the chart, and also some other printing on the board. As printed, it also extended nearly to the groove on the right side where you score.

You guys can all make your own decisions, of course, but I personally would not want to "mess up" my perfectly smooth board by attaching another chart on top with tape. That never really lasts very long, and then you have sticky residue to deal with.

As I said in an earlier post, the revised measurements are really tiny adjustments, 1/8th to 1/4th of an inch, and are mostly for very odd sized envelopes that probably most of us would never even make.

If you have a board with the original measurements, it makes sense to me to print the revised chart, keep it handy, and refer to it on the slim (for me, anyway) chance that you really need to make an envelope for a card that is 3-1/2 x 7-1/2 or 3 x 8-1/2.

Thanks, Bugga. I don't have the board so I couldn't see how it compared in size. I sure wouldn't want to shrink the chart because it's hard enough to read now. Maybe it could be attached to the back of the board somehow? As I said, I don't have the board, so I can't tell yet. My chart printed out at 6 5/8 x 3 1/4. Is that what yours is too? Wasn't sure if it was a difference in printers, or what....just curious.

Okay, Kathy, you know I've gotten fond of you - because I'm not a numbers person, but I'm really trying here, lol.

I'm quoting myself below, because, duh, I cut out the chart I printed and cut around the dark border - not just the chart. So, of course, it covered up the original chart when I placed it on my board.

"I just watched his "fix" on the video. I printed out the new revised chart, and unless you are great at resizing PDF's, it prints quite a bit larger than the chart on the board. I placed it over the chart on my board, and it covered up the chart, and also some other printing on the board. As printed, it also extended nearly to the groove on the right side where you score."

Bolded statement above is not true.

New, revised measurements for the new, revised chart I printed out are 3 x 6-11/16, just 1/16th different than the 6-5/8 you measured.

The chart on the board measures 3 x 6-11/16. The chart I printed measures 3 x 6-11/16. Perfect fit!

Even so, I don't plan to tape the new chart over my board, for the reasons I mentioned. I will just keep it with the board to refer to if I need it.

Oh good, Gale. So glad you like it. And I have to confess, I am such a "hoarder" that I can't throw away those strips, lol. I usually cut them in half and keep them by my phone to jot messages on.

It always amazes me that I live in a "sea of paper", and I can never find something to write on when I need it. I end up writing numbers on the back of envelopes from bills left on the kitchen table, or even in the margins of my daily newspaper that is sitting there.

Oh also, if they're left long they could be used for grocery lists. Even though I have apps for that, I usually end up just writing a list.
Yes, great for grocery lists. When you "lose" them in your purse, the pattern paper really shows up!

So no decorative bands at the bottom of the card to marry it to the envelope?

If I was using the same paper for a card, and then matching the envie, I probably would tie them together.

I plan on making lots of envelopes to use up that stuff in the paper packs I've not used for my cards. My motto for day in, day out envelopes is that any pattern is more exciting inside an envelope than plain white.

I thought I was quoting the above person but I see it didn't work. Sorry about that.


Anyway, I printed it out and it's definitely bigger than the chart on the board. How do you get it to print at the correct size?

Karen, I was the one that said the chart printed out too big. I printed it just as it shows on the PDF. What I did "wrong" was I included the dark border area around the chart when I was citing the measurements of what I printed out.

When I trimmed the border, the chart as printed turns out to be the same size as the one on the original boards.

I didn't do anything to change it when I printed it. Just went to the chart and clicked print on my computer.

When I trimmed the border, the chart as printed turns out to be the same size as the one on the original boards.

I didn't do anything to change it when I printed it. Just went to the chart and clicked print on my computer.
I would hope they just would send everyone out one that requests it similar to the one that came with the board in the other measurements.

Do you leave any of the grey border? If I cut off all of the grey border, mine is too small. I guess my printer isn't very good, either, as it just doesn't seem to print out in a nice, crisp, sharp image. I"m struggling a bit to read the numbers easily. Or, could be my eyes are getting old. LOL!

What did I miss? What strips are you all talking about saving?

I STILL LOVE MY OLD FLAWED BOARD!

When you trim 12 x 12 paper to make the squares for the envelopes, there are pretty good sized strips of pattern paper left over. All of us "hoarders" are talking about what to use the scraps for.

PS I still love my board, too.

Karen, I'm not really very computer/tech savvy, but the only suggestion I would have is to look at the "properties" section on your printer page when you get ready to print. At least that's what it's called on my printer, which is a Canon. There should be a button for "sizes" or something like that.

Mine has a button that says "actual size", and then several others, like "shrink to fit", etc. Be sure your printer is set to print "actual size" and that you have checked that button.

Okay, I get it thank you. My hoardering (is that a word) is out of control with all my scraps. Actualling we are redoing my craft room (Woman Cave) now. I have boxes of scraps. I had a bunch of empty white boxes from paper that I've used for scraps. Since they are white, they don't look so great anymore so I have to think of something else. Maybe there is a conversation on this site about how you store your paper scraps. I will look. I save really small pieces of paper 'cause you never know....

Mine's "out for delivery", so I'll be adhering the print of the corrected measurement chart once I see about the fit. I plan report back about my findings once I've played a bit.
