Since I love to scrapbook and create my own cards, I want my envelopes to stand out from the boring white business sized envelopes so I have invested in multiple packages and colors of envelopes that are specifically made for scrapbooking and card making.
The Paper Accents envelopes come in packages of 25 and on sale, they cost $2.49. The size of the envelopes is 4.25" x 5.5" and is the perfect size for my homemade cards. They are acid free and of archival quality.
One thing that I do like about the Paper Accents envelopes is that they do come in a variety of colors. The weight of the envelopes is slightly heavier than your standard business or security envelopes so if I happen to tuck something extra in the card, I feel confident that it will make it in one piece to its destination.
People who I send my cards to say that when they look in their mailboxes and see the envelope, they automatically know that it came from me. The envelopes are well worth the price and on occasion, I can get them on sale for $1.69.
