Measuring Expansion Envelope Specifications

  1. You must always measure the "width" of the envelope first. The shorter measurement is always the width. When an envelope opens on the short side it is called an open end envelope or a catalog envelope.
  2. Secondly you need to determine the "length" of the envelope. The length is always the longer measurement without including the flap. An envelope that opens on the long side is called a booklet envelope.
  3. Lastly you need to determine the "depth" of the expansion. That is the thickness that the envelope expands to. We often refer to the capacity as the Gusset. envelopes_30.jpg
  4. Fourth, determine the envelope's "bottom" shape. V (V-Bottom) or W (Box Bottom). envelopes_31.jpgenvelopes_32.jpg
