Customer Questions for A7 Blank Cards
Question: I am trying to order flat 5x7 wedding invitations and also order blank flat invites to mat them on. I understand the 5x7 invites are actually 5 1/8 by 7. If I want an even 1/8 inch of mat around the entire invite, what size should I get to mat? The 5 3/8 by 7 1/4? Will that provide an even mat?
Answer: Great question!! That combination would give you the 1/8th inch around on each side. Order our A7.5 backer cards here.
Question: I don't understand, what is an A7?
Answer: A7 is a standard card size (5 1/8 x 7) and terminology used in the social invitation industry. "A" designation for Announcement and "7" designation for the size.
