    Are you sure you have your sizes right?  I bought A7s from Paperandmore, and they are 5 1/4 by 8 1/4.  The A9 is 5 3/4 by 8 3/4, a half inch bigger, not an inch and a half bigger.

    I think you’re better off with the larger envelope.

    Dang it, the riesling made me have a typo again!  You are right.  Hmmm…what are the dimensions of your largest card?  There are A8 and A8 1/2 options, but not in your paper choice, unfortuantely.

    I looked it up on the usps website and it looks like an A9 should cost as much to mail as an A7, since it’s smaller than 6 x 11.5.  Does that affect your choice?

    @globalmargaret:  Is it more than a quarter inch thick?  That costs more too.  So does extra weight.  But according to the USPS website, it only qualifies as a large envelope if it’s bigger than 6 inches tall x 11.5 inches long x .25 inches thick in any dimension.  I guess the person at your post office was wrong!

     

    I checked because we have a square invitation we decided to put in a rectangular envelope to avoid having to pay extra postage, and we picked an A9, so when I saw your post that said it was more expensive, I panicked a bit! 🙂
