Catalog Envelopes vs Booklet Envelopes
Catalog envelopes and Booklet envelopes are two popular types of business envelopes. Both are available in various sizes, with the most common sizes being 6" x 9", 9" x 12" and 10" x 13". These larger envelopes are ideal for mailing catalogs, booklets, brochures and sales literature.
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.
