Announcement envelopes (also known as A-Style envelopes) were designed for use with matching text and cover papers. They typically have a square flap and can be purchased in a wide range of colors and textures. They’re often used for invitations, thank-you cards, personal and business stationery (to create a unique look), smaller brochures, booklets, etc.
A great feature is most announcement envelopes have matching text and cover weight papers. Some are available with a deckled edge, which is a ragged or feathered edge. This gets its name from the frame (called a deckle) used in papermaking.
Announcement envelopes can be printed in black, PMS or full-color formats. Clear Print has a Heidelberg press which prints on ready-made announcement envelopes in 1 – 5 colors, and all in one pass so the colors have tight registration. Our shop is one of a few with this capability.
