Common Cutting Sizes

The following tables shows some popular cutting sizes in order to obtain the proper sizes of cardstock and vellum for their appropriate envelopes.

Bases are traditionally cardstock weight papers. Overlays can be vellum, text weight paper, or a different colored cardstock. The overlay can either be the same size as the cardstock or it can be smaller. If choosing a smaller size, we recommend a gap of ¼” on each side between the overlay and base. Panel sized cards are single cards with no fold. Folder sized cards can be folded along the middle. Please note that our papers are not pre scored for folding.
