On this page. you will find a lot of card options, and if you are like many, you have questions. Below we answer the most common ones to help you order the right size cards for your project. If you have more questions, get in touch!
What do the "A"s in the Card Sizes Mean?
You will notice a lot of our cards are designated with an A followed by a number (A1, A2, A6, A7, etc.). These are standard "A" sizes that correspond to specific card dimensions. Most stationers and printing professionals are familiar with "A" sizes, making it easier to communicate about what card is needed for a project.
Are the Dimensions Listed for Flat or Folding Cards?
We offer both flat and folding cards. Flat cards are simply pre-cut card stock (like playing cards). Folding cards are pre-cut and pre-scored to fold to size (like greeting cards). Whether for flat cards or folders, the dimensions listed are for the finished/folded size. For example, an A7 flat card is listed as 5 1/8 x 7 inches and an A7 folder is also listed as 5 1/8 x 7 inches.
Note: You can tell the difference between flat and folding cards on our site by the image and product title.
What's the Standard Card Size For...?
This is a very popular question! While there is no "standard" size for cards (we're big fans of unique designs and creativity), there are certainly popular choices. Here's a few of the most common ones:
- Note cards: A1 (3 1/2 x 4 7/8), A2 (4 1/4 x 5 1/2) and A6 (4 1/2 x 6 1/4)
- Greeting cards: A6 & A7 (5 1/8 x 7)
- Thank you cards: A1 & A2
- Invitation cards: A6, A7 & A9 (5 1/2 x 8 1/2)
- Reply cards: A1 & A2 (A2s can also be used as post card RSVPs)
Do the Cards come with Envelopes?
Cards do not come with envelopes so that you can mix and match if you'd like.
How do I Choose the Correct Envelope?
Choose an envelope that is 1/8 to 1/4 inch larger than your card or just match the A sizes. An A2 card is the perfect match for an A2 envelope. To keep it simple, we also provided a link to matching envelopes under each card size above.
What if I Can't Find the Size I Need?
If the size you need is not listed, no problem. We offer custom cutting services and can create just the size you need.
