A7 envelopes printed on 70lb uncoated paper at Clubcard Vancouver are an excellent choice for top-quality printing at affordable prices. A7 envelopes are sized to fit 5" x 7" greeting cards, postcards and invitations.
The 70lb smooth uncoated paper has a matte finish for a natural and subtle colour presentation of your artwork printed in full colour with full bleed. Full bleed printing of envelopes means that your art is printed edge to edge without borders and even the flaps can be printed.
A7 envelopes are sized at 7.25" x 5.25", giving a little wiggle room to fit a 5" x 7" card with ease.
Window Is in a Fixed Spot
Window placement is always the same, we aren't able to customize the placement of the window on these envelopes
Colour Will Vary
These envelopes are gang run printed and colour will vary from run to run. Also, the colour will vary from other products, so if you are ordering envelopes and letterhead - the colours might not match.
Artwork Shouldn't End on Flaps
These envelopes are first printed, then folded and converted to envelopes. Because of the process, designs cannot end right at the edge of the flap, or front to back. Trying to have a white front, and a coloured flap will always result in slivers of colour showing through to the front. We recommend having a white or full coverage colour or patten background and not trying to have artwork end right on the flap or edges.
Greys Can Shift
CMYK Process colours in the grey range and de-saturated images can shift in colour throughout the print run and may cause the greys to appear either cooler or warmer. For a neutral grey, we recommend converting all grey values and de-saturated images to true greyscale consisting of K (black) only values.
Your Blue Might not Really Be Blue
Due to the nature of club-run printing, you may experience colour variation in solid fills of blue. For great blue results, we recommend a 30% difference between your Cyan and Magenta levels to ensure a nice rich dark blue, rather than purple.
Use Rich Black
For the richest of deep dark blacks in print use 50/40/40/100 as the CMYK value. If printing small black text (or knocked out text), we recommend a k only black (0/0/0/100) to avoid misregistration issues.
No Printing on the Inside
We do not offer printing on the inside of the envelopes.
