    I don’t really have preference. I bought the squared off one because a) that’s what was available in the color I wanted and b) they were only $.05 each.

    I had squared off envelopes but I do like the pointed flap envelopes much better but I have no real reason why . Both do the job very well!

    I like both, but ours are pointed flap so that’s what I voted for. 🙂

    I can’t vote, because I like both — just for different occasions, reasons, etc.  Our wedding invites went out with pointed flap outer and return envelopes — but the Rehearsal Dinner invites I just sent out today (and will blog about next week) had square flaps.

    Paper Source carries an A7.5 which are 7.5" x 5.5" in a limited amount of colors. A8 are not proportional to an A7 if your pocket folders are already 5" x 7"  Cranes makes a 7bar outer envelope which is also 7.5" x 5.5" but they only come pointed flap.

    I like them both. I think go for the envelopes that are sold as "outer envelopes" and you’ll be fine… they are 7.5 x 5.5". You can get them at cardsandpockets.com, too.

    I prefer pointed only because I like to put a sticker seal on them and they don’t look right with a straight flap 🙂

    I love the pointed flap-they’re so classic.

    I didn’t really think I had a preference until we got square and I really like it 🙂

    I really don’t have a preference.  I do however prefer the squared envelope when it is lined, there is more space for the fukny/classy lining paper.

    i like both, for some reason i associate pointed with more traditional designs and square with modern.
