Default Need 3.5x5 envelopes... any source?

The USPS says 3.5x5 is the minimum size of envie you can mail.... does anyone know where I can get this size envie?

Emily and I are switching from 8.5x11 to 8x8 scrapbook pages and we need to use up the scraps and they make perfect mini-cards!

Beuler?

i know this is crazy.. but i just did wedding invites.. and needed smaller envies for the rsvp cards. so, i went to walmart and bought the 20packs of american greetings boxed cards for 3.98.. still cheaper than a box of envies.. and used the envies only.

I think the size you're looking for is A1. Check out this link:

I just made 75 wedding invitations and reply cards for my MIL who is getting married at the age of 73!! I made the invitations regular card-front size - 1/4 sheet of card stock. Then I made the reply cards 5x3-1/2 which fit perfectly into a 5-1/4 x 3-5/8 envelope. I got them here

www.clearbags.com

They are the E130 envelope. Type in E130 into the search option, and it will bring you directly to them. They are 10 envelopes for 95 cents!! The price goes down the more you order. This is where I also get my clear envelopes for my cards. You can also request samples, just to make sure you are getting what you want. They have excellent customer service and are quick to deliver once you have placed your order. I have nothing but good things to say about this site. Hope this helps!!

well while you are waiting why not use a regular homely business envy run a roller or stamp over the unstamped end and throw in the mini card and call it done.
that gives you time to get the first round out while you are finding the perfect envy....and is "close enough"

that is MY good idea

I love the little "envelope size chart" at Paper Zone. I can't ever REMEMBER what A1 or A4 or whatever means!!! So that's what charts are for!
ALSO just yesterday I got a long email called "How to Stay Young." One short section...
