NEW! Real Wood Envelopes

We are so excited to introduce an awesome new product in our Wood line. Wood envelopes! These envelopes are available in Cherry Wood and Birch WoodWood envelopes come in 5 sizes: 4Bar, A2, A6, A7, and 5×5. Wood envelopes can be purchased in bulk, packs of 5 envelopes and packs of 5 envelopes and flat notecards. The best part is that these envelopes can be mailed through the USPS at regular postage rates (except for the 5×5 square)!

Wood envelopes are impressive from first glance! We introduced these envelopes at the National Stationery Show and received rave reviews. Everyone was amazed at the quality and how clean the folded Real Wood paper converted into an envelope.

You can see these Wood envelopes in person at the SPC Mixed Media Show at the Salt Palace this week (July 28th- July 30th) in Salt Lake City. Stop by our booth (#97) and say hi! Or contact us today to request product pricing.

You can create matching cards with our Wood paper like we’ve shown here with the Birch Thank you card. Simply print your messaging onto a sheet of Wood paper and cut to the preferred envelope size. This Thank You card fits in the 5×5 Birch envelope.

We’ve also added an Envelope & Flat Notecard pack in the same 5 sizes. If you choose our notecard option, the flat notecard included with the envelopes are made from 100# cover cardstock in either kraft or vanilla. Kraft is included with all Cherry Wood envelopes and vanilla is included with the Birch Wood envelopes. The card stock matches the envelope lining. We dressed up this kraft 4Bar notecard, included in the Cherry envelope and notecard pack, with matching Cherry wood tape and paper embellishments.
