Knowing the lingo for envelope sizes will help when looking to purchase. The most common sizes we sell are the A7 – which hold the 5×7 inch invitations and cards, and the note card size which is A2. These are “announcement” envelopes and will have a contemporary, square flap. A return address can be added before purchase, but individual addresses can not.
Most cards and invitations will be 5×7, or 5×4, etc. and the envelopes will be just a tad bit larger in measurement.
Keep in mind that all our wedding invitations and reply cards (and some of our enclosure cards) will come with white envelopes. Extra envelopes, with color and paper choice, can be created for you at ♥ Sandpiper Wedding:

Horizontal: 4.38″ x 5.75″ – A-2
Horizontal: 5.5″ x 5.5″ – Square – This size will require more postage.
Sometimes customers who are shopping for wedding invitations will also want an outside envelope. This would be larger than the invitation and will be able to hold that, plus all the enclosure cards (if any).
Since Zazzle does not offer “outside envelopes” those will need to be purchase separately. The Paper Mill store is an online site that has a wide variety of envelope sizes and speicalty paper. Searches online will bring up other options as well. Just choose an envelope that is a bit larger than your invitation, (such as the A8 for the A7 size invitations).
The Paper-Papers site offers a break down of the envelopes in their size chart.
