I never measure them either - so I would never list exact measurements because that would be a complete pain to me (more chore than fun).
I buy stacks of envelopes and just make my card bases to fit those.

And I also have a blog and sometimes just say, "look at my blog for more info" because I will often have multiple shots of a project. I also link products to manufacturer sites - something that can't really be done the way I want in the gallery.
