Where do you get your envelopes?
 
I'm looking for a source for good quality envelopes (white and cream) in A6 and A2 sizes. I prefer a square flap. I will be buying these in bulk (either 250 or 500 of each). Does anyone have a source they use that has good prices and good shipping?

I found today I can buy A2 white wove envelopes on Walmart.com: Save money. Live better. - they are true A2 and not the "4x6 photo envelopes" sold at the Walmart Stores. It cost me 97 cents for the shipping.

They are an ok quality - they work, for an envie I think but they are nice enough. If you want really nice envelopes then I would go with Classic Crest envelopes, PTI envelopes or Gina K envelopes. You will pay a little more per piece.

I get my Classic Crest envelopes from Anchor Paper - you can buy in bulk and the price per envelope is about a dime. I love them, very nice quality, and it's great working with Anchor Paper (they have awesome customer service). You can get the Classic Crest in 9 colors (including several shades of white and ivory) and you can get them in A2 or A6 sizes (or A7, #10 and #24). It has a square flap. Shipping is not super cheap but is reasonable considering the size boxes they have to mail you for 1000 envelopes total!

250 envelopes for the Classic Crest is $22.17 for the A2 and $25.81 for the A6.

I buy mine at Office Depot.

I used to buy them at Wal-Mart but they changed to the photo size. I got horrible ones at Staples and Michael's that I threw away!
I do order from SU and they are wonderful!
I'll check out WM.com....thanks!

You probably have a commercial paper supplier nearby. The ones I've been to sell to the public, and sometimes they have clearance boxes. I bought quite a few boxes at a local paper supplier, Kelly Paper. There is quite a difference in price between a brand like Neenah and their own brand. Xpedx is another company located in large cities.

My latest addition came from a garage sale: 3 almost full boxes (250) of A-2 and A-6 envelopes for $10!

I get mine at clearbags.com. I got 1,000 for $40. They are the cheapies, as I don't care about the quality of the envelope, just the card. But they have nicer ones and the nicer ones aren't a bad price either. Shipping is kind of high, but I haven't found any place that is better as of yet.

I get mine at miracle-envelopes.com. They are super quality, square flap, super fast shipping. I've ordered from them several times. And come in the sizes you're wanting.

which ones from them do you consider the "cheapies" ? i'm trying to figure out all their different types of envelopes.

I found Anchor Paper due to a thread on SCS a year or two ago:
Anchor Paper Company

Great shipping and their prices were fab. I received my envies in less than 1 week. Their online store isn't as pretty as some, but if you call you will speak with a real live person. They're a printer, not just some reseller.

another vote for ClearBags - Promote, Protect and Preserve. I order 3000 at a time and it is like a little over $100.00 delivered. I am happy with the quality and always come back for more.

I buy mine at Staples. they have both white & cream in quantities of 100 for about $11.00. I don't know if that is a good price, but I know that I don't have to wait for it & I don't pay any shipping. Pay & go.

You can also try Marco's paper. They have a lot of different sizes and weights.

I buy mine from Paper Zone. Don't know if they sell online though.

A2 envelopes
 
I have an Accucut machine and several sizes of envelope dies. I buy the 24 lb paper nice and heavy and make my own................best investment I made, as I have alot of their card diecuts so can make cards and envelopes at the same time.

I discovered Envelopper Inc when shopping for envelopes for my niece's wedding. They are high quality and for what I needed they had the best price I found. They will send you up to 5 samples for free before you order. I don't think they have square flaps though.
