Top Holiday Envelope Questions, Answered
Here are the five most common holiday envelope questions we get. If you have other questions, get in touch with us!
Do people still mail Christmas, Hanukkah, or holiday cards?
Yes, they do! Mailing a holiday card is a nice way to let loved ones know you are thinking of them during the holiday season (and it's fun to receive pretty envelopes in the mail). Companies still send holiday cards to customers, too! It's a great way to show customer and client appreciation.
How do I know what size holiday envelope to use?
Choose an envelope that is a 1/4 inch larger than your holiday card. A7 envelopes (for 5x7 holiday cards) are by far the most popular size. Read How to choose the right envelope size for your card to learn more.
What's the right way to address holiday envelopes?
Holiday cards are usually addressed informally, as they are designed to be fun, thoughtful, and are typically sent to your closest friends and family. For example, use John and Jane Smith as opposed to Mr. and Mrs. Jonathan Smith.
Should holiday card envelopes be hand written, or can I get holiday envelopes printed with addresses?
It's preference, but since the holiday season is so busy, we say order Christmas envelopes with printed addresses! Save time and let us do the work for you. We can print your return address or custom company logo, all of your recipients' addresses, or both.
Do holiday card envelopes require special postage?
Christmas and holiday postage is a nice touch, but isn't necessary. Most holiday cards require just one stamp, as most weigh one ounce or under. If you are concerned that your Christmas card envelopes may weigh over one ounce, you can bring one to your local post office to determine accurate postage.
