    Window Envelopes

    Window envelopes are popularly used for marketing purposes. They are often used for bills too. One of the unique things that separate window envelopes from other envelopes are that the name and address show through the window thereby eliminating the need to address the envelope. In most cases, translucent plastic is used as the window material. In as much as most people prefer to use open window envelopes, they are, however, less secure compared to the other envelopes.

    There are two types of open window envelopes; single window envelopes and double window envelopes.

      Frequently Asked Questions

      How can I determine the envelope template size that I need?

      One of the ways that you can easily remember or determine the envelope template size that you need is to swap the letter “A” letter of your paper size for the letter “C.” for instance, if you need an envelope to fit an A4 sheet of paper, then you simply swap the “A” and put the “C” and you have a “C4.” This is the size of the envelope template you will need.

      What does the letter C mean?

      All papers come in A and B sizes. C envelope size is basically the geometric mean of sizes “A” and “B” of the same number. This calculation produces a size between the “A” and “B” dimensions to make a perfect envelope to hold the size “A” paper. For instance, if you calculate the geometric mean of an “A4” and a “B4” paper, you will get a C4 envelope, which is ideal for holding an A4 size paper without folding.
