Pochette Invitations – Sizing the Invitation Cards and Mailing Envelopes

Posted on by

You love the petal fold look of LCI Paper’s pochette invitations, but you’re not sure how to choose the correct invitation cards and mailing envelopes to complete your ensemble. Today, you’ll learn about pochette invitation sizing.

Our pochettes are available in two sizes, 6 3/8″ square and 5″ x 7″ so choosing between square and rectangular will be your first decision. Keep in mind that square envelopes require additional postage at the post office. Once you’ve decided on a square or a rectangular pochette, you’ll need correctly sized mailing envelopes and invitation cards. Below are size keys and links for both square and rectangular pochettes so you’ll know which mailing envelopes and invitation cards to order as you create your own custom pochette invitation kit.

    I want to order translucent paper to fit inside the Pochettes. Do you sell these in that size? Also do you give advise on how to print in order to fit for this size?

  4. JB says:

    Hi Sabrina,

    Great questions! The short answer is yes and yes, but your questions inspired us to make our own Pochette invitations with Vellum layers so that we could answer your question with confidence. Please see our video response, Want to use Vellum Paper with a Pochette invitation? We show you what vellum layers are a good fit and we also pass along some printing tips.

    Was just wondering if I order the pochette does it come with the outer envelope or do I have to order that separately?

  6. JB says:

    Hi Candice,

    Outer envelopes are sold separately from Pochettes. Just use the Envelope links in the size chart above to order. Please let us know if you need any help choosing the correct size.

    Will the US Postal Service allow any of the pochettes with just a seal closure, but no outer envelope? And what do you mean by those that are marked as “pochette envelope”?

    • JB says:

      Hi Lynn,

      When sending Pochette Envelopes through the mail, we recommend using an outer envelope. Please see our video How do I mail Pochettes? to learn why.

      We call these Petal Folds “Pochette Envelopes” because they envelop and enclose an invitation card.
