Catalog Envelopes vs Booklet Envelopes
Catalog envelopes and Booklet envelopes are well-known and widely employed in business correspondence due to their versatility and practicality. These envelopes come in various sizes, with the most commonly used dimensions being 6" x 9", 9" x 12", and 10" x 13". These larger sizes are specifically designed to efficiently accommodate mailing items such as catalogs, booklets, brochures, and sales literature. Whether you need to send promotional materials or informational packets, these envelopes offer a secure and professional packaging solution, ensuring your documents reach their recipients in excellent condition.
How does a Catalog Envelope differ from a Booklet Envelope?
A Catalog envelope opens on the short end. For example, on a 9" x 12" catalog envelope the open flap is along the 9" end. Hence, catalog envelopes are sometimes called Open End envelopes.
A Booklet envelope is similar to the catalog envelope except that the booklet envelope opens on the long side. For example, on a 9" x 12" booklet envelope the open flap is along the 12" side. Hence, booklet envelopes are sometimes called Open Side envelopes.
Booklet envelopes might be preferred over catalog envelopes when a lot of envelopes must be filled manually. This is because the larger opening makes the envelope easier to stuff, especially if the contents are bulky.
