Summary: These vibrant blue envelopes work well for store bought greeting cards, handmade greeting cards, or a variety of other purposes.
When purchasing store bought greeting cards, you can generally expect to get envelopes with your purchase. Sometimes though, I have accidentally ruined an envelope, and more often I need additional envelopes for hand made greeting cards. I found the Bazzill Basics Envelopes in a variety of colors for around $5 for a package of 50 envelopes.
This review features the Bazzill Basics Vibrant Blue A7 Envelope, which is a bright blue envelope that is well suited for a 5x7 inch greeting card. These work well for birthdays, Christmas, Easter, baby showers, Valentines Day, Birthdays, or any other holiday. Since I make many of my own greeting cards, these work well for my needs.
These envelopes are brightly colored, and thick enough to keep greeting card designs from showing through. The paper is textured, with a wet and stick flap which sticks well. It is easy to write on using a pencil, ink pen, or sharpie marker. If using markers, I would suggest writing on the envelope before adding the card though, as sharpie markers do tend to soak through some surfaces. This hasn't been a problem for me though, especially with the fine tip sharpies.
It is easy to add any 5x7 inch holiday card to these envelopes, and I have also enclosed family photos along with some of my cards. They fit well and are easy to send through the mail.
This is just one of the colors offered by this company, but it is one that I found particularly appealing. I would recommend these envelopes for anyone who needs replacement envelopes for there holiday cards or extra envelopes for handmade greeting cards or for any other purpose.
